ABC Family is the latest network looking to shed some pounds.

The network confirmed Monday reports that it was canceling “Huge.”

The series, which had a 10-episode run, starred Nikki Blonsky (“Hairspray”) and Hayley Hasselhoff (daughter of The Hoff, a.k.a. David Hasslehoff) as teens at a weight-loss camp.

The series premiered in June as part of the network’s summer slate of programing, which also included “Pretty Little Liars” and “Melissa & Joey.”


The network decided not to renew for additional episodes beyond the initial 10.

Though the show had started out strong, the ratings dropped throughout its run, averaging 1.9 million viewers.

Blonsky took to Twitter to address the news: “2 all my fans who loved @#HUGE I thank u for ur support + 4 watching and as much as u all loved Will I loved playing her!”
