The latest freshman series to bite the dust is The CW’s godawful medical show Emily Owens M.D., which has just been axed.
According to Deadline.com, the show — starring Mamie Gummer (a.k.a. Meryl Streep’s daughter) as an awkward young medical student who acts like a 12-year-old — will continue to air until the episodes already produced have run but, then it will vanish. Production on the show’s original 13-episode order will wrap next week. No word yet on what The CW plans to air in that timeslot after Emily Owens will end its run.
No real surprise to see a show I earlier described as a “cringe-inducing catastrophe” go down in flames — but on the plus side, at least it frees up Gummer to appear in something that doesn’t suck.
