The Sitcom Slaughter Continues! NBC Cancels Eva Longoria's Telenovela & Undateable!

It's that time of year where networks decide which shows to keep and which to take to the backyard and shoot.

ABC, The CW, and FOX have already axed several shows in their spring cleaning effort — including hit series like Nashville, Castle, and Agent Carter!

But NBC had it's own set of casualties — announcing that Eva Longoria's comedy Telenovela and improv-inclined sitcom Undateable would not live to make the Fall 2016 schedule!

Back in January 2015, Telenovela was ordered straight-to-series as part of NBC's larger push for diversity.

But unlike the Jennifer Lopez drama Shades of Blue, or the America Ferrera workplace comedy Superstore — which were both already renewed — Telenovela's lukewarm ratings were the proverbial kiss of death.

Despite little network marketing and a horrible Friday time slot, Undateable gave an impressive three season run — largely thanks to the cast of stand-up veterans like Chris D'Elia and Ron Funches.

The Bill Lawrence sitcom has been on the bubble of cancellation throughout its entire run, but even NBC's last ditch stunt to transform the show into Undateable Live! — featuring all live telecasts — couldn't stop this scrappy sitcom from its inevitable TV death.

The peacock network also gave the axe to freshman thriller Game Of Silence and medical drama Heartbeat — both of which totally flatlined in the ratings department.

Did your favorite shows survive the massacre so far?

This hurts us on so many levels.

As we previously reported, The New York Times interviewed 27 people in the entertainment industry who don't identify as straight, white males on their experiences in their fields.

We thought we heard the worst horror story America Ferrera ever had to endure when she talked about being told to "sound more Latina" while speaking English during an audition as a 16-year-old…

But we were wrong.

That's because she had an even more unsettling brush with racism when she had no choice but to literally whitewash herself to try to get a part, telling NYT:

You tell 'em, chicas!

America Ferrera and Eva Longoria may not have been up for any awards at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but they walked away from the show as the biggest successes of the night.

That's because their joke about Hollywood mixing up its Latina actresses wasn't just HIGHlarious, it was pretty biting commentary as well.

Naturally, the Superstore and Telenovela stars have been busy promoting their new NBC sitcoms, so the pair each stopped by the TCA Press Tour on Wednesday where they revealed the origin of the joke, saying:
