R.I.P. Charlie's Angels! New TV Show Remake CANCELLED!

| Filed under: TV NewsR.I.P.Drew BarrymoreBusiness Blitz

abc has cancelled charlies angels

Goodbye, Angels.

On Sunday, we reported that ratings for TV in general were down last week…but we were specifically concerned for Charlie's Angels, which had dropped 20% in the ratings after dropping 29% the week before!

We were right to be concerned, because today ABC announced that they've stopped production on the show, and even though they'll continue airing the seven or so episodes that have already been shot…there will be no new ones after that.

Major bummer for executive producer Drew Barrymore, but who knows? Maybe she'll bring the Angels back again one day! Perhaps another over-the-top movie with a creepy cameo by Crispin Glover???

Are U sad that Charlie's Angels was cancelled? Do U think we'll ever see another Angels TV series???

    I am not surprised at all. ;)



  2. 2

    Not shocked. Crispin Glover for the win though!! wooo!

    I am not surprised.
    I am convinced that the TV executives are the idiot kids of former execs who only got their jobs through nepotism.
    There are a lot of good shows that are cancelled because these morons don't give them a chance to grow and also they lump them into bad time slots.

    If they had moved this to a different time or even a different day, it would have done well.
    These idiots had it competing with The Big Bang Theory, X Factor, Vampire Diaries and god knows what else all at the same time slot.

    Other examples of good shows that were cancelled were Life and The Unit and now they are screwing with Fringe.

    Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd, Shelley Hack, and Tanya Roberts…..

    WERE CHARLIES ANGEL

    Re: Angus8 – I agree completely

    That's why you should never mess with a good thing. The original "angels" series was much better.



  7. 7

    I didn't watch it, but let's see…. the original Angels were ex-cops trained in PI work (yeah, it was the 70s, and not very realistic so what). The new angels were…. convicted felons? Who got PI lisences? Oh yeah, way more realistic.

    NOOOOOO :( i really liked that new show. Why do they have to cancel everything? ABC had a horrible marketing strategy for that show, no wonder noone is watching it. The actresses/actors are great, the show is great. people just.. dont know about it yet :P

    i really enjoyed the new angels, Angus8 i totally agree, it's a shame they cancelled it, all the new twists are pretty good especially the one were bosley & charlie's daughter were an item & bosley feels guilty for her death… it's a shame we will not know the full story to that plotline… this new take on "angles in chains" episode was fantastic i think… but it's a shame we will not have the angels anymore :(



  10. 10

    They should have called it "Drew's Skanks"…



  11. 11

    amen to that! STOP WITH THE RE-MAKES ALREADY!!!



  12. 12

    wow, i did not see that coming. i thought it would be on for years.



  13. 13

    I blame reality shows. I don't watch tv anymore really because of them.



  14. 14

    damn I only just downloaded the first ep to watch. Now Im not sure I should bother!



  15. 15

    The casting was so wrong! Those women look like robots. No personality.



  16. 16

    i liked it, but the day and time slot werent great for it. i wish stations would try different time slots/days before they cancelled anything

    The chick on the far left cannot act. If they recast and made it less campie it could work.



  18. 18

    Horrible show that got what it deserves.



  19. 19

    Im not suprised its a remake no one likes to look at a remake of someting



  20. 20

    CALLED IT!



  21. 21

    Who didn't see that coming?
    They shouldn't have remade it in the first place. The movies were bad enough.

    2011 Fall season is really sucking…

    There is no such thing as a black Angel. CANCEL!



  23. 23

    Pam, for once I agree with you, the original show was WAY better. Tired of remakes.



  24. 24

    Re: Christina Polo – I love it when idiots like you criticize something but are completely wrong in the process. They worked for Charlie..An extremely rich POWERFUL man that was able to pull strings..Also, what proof is there they ever had a license?



  25. 25

    I am not surprised. It did look a bit too cheesy. The Charlie's Angels of the 70's could get away with it because everything was cheesy back then, but now people aren't so easily sold. It's hard for new shows on network tv to make it. Most shows I watch are on cable anyways because cable stations don't worry about offending the youth and elder demographics as much.
    Like a few posters have said already, I am sure it didn't help that they already had it going against some very established shows. If a show is brand new, it doesn't need stiff competition or it is doomed from the start and I don't care how much promotion is done. Even with the modern conveniences of dvr, most people don't even entertain the idea of watching something that comes on during their regular programs.
    Sucks for Drew Barrymore. I like her and was kind of pulling for this show since was the executive producer. Minka Kelly is beautiful enough to get more gigs and if not, she can always marry Derek Jeter.

    Re: Angus8 – Word.



  27. 27

    It is a shame that it didn't have a chance for people to discover it. X FACTOR got so much coverage (including by Perez) and CHARLIE'S ANGELS suffered for it. And even if you hated the reconfigured CHARLIE'S ANGELS - and least it endeavored to be something more. ABC should have given it a little more time. Very short-sighted. And Perez, seriously, enough with X FACTOR, please!



  28. 28

    no movies sucks put bring them back the show actually looked promising



  29. 29

    Thank God.

    As soon as they announced the show was in production I knew it wouldn't last. The actresses and the plots are really bad. No one can replace the original "Angels" or "Charlie" or Bosely. You can't redo classics and expect them to work. Waste of time.



  31. 31

    Perhaps they'll take this as a sign that we're sick of tired remakes. I had zero interest in this show from the moment it was announced.

    i didnt event know it had started- LOL

    As to Charley angels, I am sad that it did nit work, but it was not because of the concept. We have to work that these girls could not act. plus who ever wrote this show has no
    Clue how to write.
    Another people, wanted the simple concept of the original tv series, in the original series the girls were picked because they had terrible jobs in The police department. They were not great fighters, they used what they learned and out smart them with the help of charlie. If they kept that format and got Couple of ladies who could act, we would be talking right now how great the show was. Drew in the movies, you were the only thing that was great, the other ladies were just ok, if you do the movies, please get new girls and remember the ladies do not have to be some amazing ladies, they just have to be normal.



  34. 34

    The acting was just horrible, glad to be rid of it.



  35. 35

    Too bad, I loved Charlies Angel's in the 70's but it was so stupid…no chemistry
