NBC has canceled The Michael J. Fox Show, which co-starred two-time Tony winner Katie Finneran as Fox’s self-involved, single and unemployed sister. According to E! Online, the sitcom will be replaced by Main Stem alum Jane Lynch’s Hollywood Game Night once the Olympics are over.
The comedy has struggled to find an audience, with its most recent episode pulling in just 2.2 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. The news comes hot on the heels of the Peacock network stopping production on Broadway vet Sean Hayes’ show, Sean Saves The World.
Finneran received Tony Awards for her scene-stealing performances in Promises, Promises and Noises Off. Her other Broadway credits include Annie, Mauritius, Cabaret, The Iceman Cometh, Proposals, The Heiress, My Favorite Year, In the Summer House and Two Shakesperean Actors. She recently starred on the short-lived FOX series I Hate My Teenage Daughter.
