‘Kenan’ Canceled By NBC After Two Seasons

Kenan Thompson’s self-titled NBC sitcom has been canceled after two seasons.

via Deadline:

The comedy follows a widowed dad, played by Thompson, who’s juggling a high-profile job as the host of an Atlanta morning show and raising his two girls. As Kenan tries to move on, his father-in-law Rick (Don Johnson), brother Gary (Chris Redd) and co-workers all have strong opinions on the best way to live his life.

Kimrie Lewis, Dani and Dannah Lane also star.

Kenan is produced by Universal Television in association with Broadway Video with Thompson, Lorne Michaels, David Caspe, Jackie Clarke, Ken Whittingham and Andrew Singer as executive producers.

It comes after Ted Danson’s Mr. Mayor was also canceled after two seasons, while NBC renewed comedies including Young Rock, Grand Crew and American Auto, and decided against picking up Demi Lovato’s Hungry pilot, starring Modern Family’s Ariel Winter, to series.

If you ask us, Kenan should be in line to take over one of these late-night talk shows.
