The Witch…is Dead.
And now, let’s please have a moment of awkward silence while we mourn at Eastwick. The series short run is survived by its biggest stright male fan and fellow Mogul, Beaumaloe.
The show began with a solid but unimpressive 3.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and 8.5 million total viewers and dropped steadily until last week, when the series hit a low of 1.5 in the demo and 4.4 million. That’s when ABC pulled the plug.
With only 13 episodes in the can, there’s no way of knowing if the writers were able to slap together a decent wrap up. One would hope the network gave enough warning, so at least future owners of the DVD will have at least a little closure.
Heads are rolling, people. Who’s next?
