'Sons of Tucson' canceled: Poor Tyler Labine...

Sons-of-TucsonImage Credit: Patrick Wymore/FoxPoor Tyler Labine. The guy has snagged two series in the past three years — Reaper and Sons of Tucson — only to see both canceled early in their lives. Today Variety reports that Fox has officially canceled Tucson in its freshman year, freeing up the show’s leading man to focus all his attention on that True Love pilot.

Sad, considering the show was on for less than a month. (It premiered March 14.) I might have helped contribute to the show’s cancellation — I’ve been a fan of Labine’s since Reaper, and had every intention to check out his turn on Tucson. Instead, I’d end up spending my Sunday nights watching The Celebrity Apprentice, since my mind is too focused on the contours of Blago’s hair to concentrate on any other show on TV.

Oh well. It was good(?) while it lasted. Are you going to miss Sons of Tucson, PopWatchers?

    I really am! I enjoyed the show – it was a perfect Sunday Night wind down for me.

      He’s a lucky guy. He went from Invasion to Reaper to Sons of Tucson to True Love. The guy is either very talented and lucky, or like Sam in Reaper his soul is owned by the Devil.

  • Sara (other one)

    Aw :-/ I forgot it was on, but I did enjoy the one or two episodes I watched on Hulu.

  • muddpuddin

    Poor Guy…he was also on the Cancelled Invasion on ABC…

    • Zoe

      Yep…don’t forget Invasion! I still think that was a very underrated show. It took a little bit to find its footing, but got really excellent and involving towards the end.

      • Antonio

        I have to agree with you on

        I have to agree with you on “Invasion”. Loved him there and “Reaper”

      Who is Taylor Labine?

  • James

    I watched the first two episodes and realized it wasn’t gonna last long. I too love Tyler Labine since Reaper. He needs a good ensemble show.

  • Remerdre

    Wait — the Marriage Ref gets renewed and this gets cancelled? Are you kidding me?

    • Monty

      One is NBC, the other Fox…

      different expectations

    It was funny, and had a promising premise, but alas, the feeling that the writers had started running out of things to do already started to become painfully obvious in the third episode. The actors were great though, and Tyler Labine was loveable as always so I’ll follow him wherever he goes.

    I understand that the first week the ratings were only 2.1 but the next 2 weeks were 1.9 and 2.0 so to me Fox would realize that this show has a chance to be succesful at another time slot next year. And also last night was Easter and with re-runs as a lead-in you think they would let it pass!!!

    i tried to like it but found it unlikeable.

    Never even heard about it-the show that is.

    “Instead, I’d end up spending my Sunday nights watching The Celebrity Apprentice, since my mind is too focused on the contours of Blago’s hair to concentrate on any other show on TV.” Well, you don’t have to worry about that anymore either.

    I’ve been a fan of Tyler Labine since Invasion; he was the reason why I gave Reaper a chance (and a big reason why I loved the show) and had planned to check out SoT, but Sunday nights are usually our DVR catch-up nights here.

  • S

    A fan since Reaper? Try a fan since “Breaker High”. And don’t forget as Noel Andrew Davies in the 2gether movie. I hope “True Love” works out for him.

    • ani

      wow..i thought i was the only person who watched breaker high. i used to have a crush on ryan gosling’s character…

  • sad sack

    Aw bummer,I was really starting to like this show!!!

  • Generation Gossip

    I watched this mess last night, it was not funny. I expected the cancellation sooner.

    that’s too bad. I really kind of liked this show. the kids especially were kind of cute, especially Robby. I wasn’t too sure about it at first, but it kind of grew on me. but I kind of wondered how long they could keep it going.
