‘Rush Hour’ Canceled By CBS After One Season

No surprise here — seven 🤬 -hum weeks into the midseason run of CBS’ series remake of the hit Rush Hour action comedy franchise, the network has decided not to renew the show for a second season. The series will stay on the air until it finishes its first-season run ends. Meanwhile, still no official word on Limitless. Awaiting cancellation, CBS TV Studios already had been fielding outside interest, so the delay in CBS’ decision is interesting.

Airing in the Thursday 10 PM slot, Rush Hour never got traction. It launched to an underwhelming 5.1 million viewers and 1.1 in 18-49 (Live+same day) and most recently logged 4.5 million viewers and a 0.9 in 18-49. The show starred Justin Hires and Jon Foo in the roles made famous by Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

Rush Hour was the first of several series based on big Warner Bros. movies that WBTV unspooled over the last two seasons. This season, it already has a Lethal Weapon series picked up by Fox, Training Day at CBS and Frequency at the CW.

    Networks are impatient these days, how many classic shows would've been cancelled if the networks operated back then like they do today.

    How do they green light stuff like this. These remake shows have to be pitched to a group of people and go through multiple departments in order to et approved....did they really think somebody wants to see tv shows based on movies?
