Here comes a piece of disappointing news for CBS shows lovers, CBS has decided to cancel “All Rise” and “The Unicorn”. Both shows will go offline after two seasons. The decision is one of the last CBS to move on to its current Upfront show next week, with only Comedy Be Positive and the United States of Al, both from Chuck Lorre, still waiting for news of his future.
The cancellation comes a day after news that two other CBS shows, SEAL Team and Clarice, could move to ViacomCBS’s streaming service Paramount + next season. The network has renewed a dozen of its existing scripted shows and has ordered another six for the 2021-22 season.
All Rise has been through a backstage confusion, which ended with the shooting of producer and co-listener Greg Spottiswood in March following an investigation into alleged misconduct on the series. Co-listener Dee Harris Lawrence controlled the remaining second season of the Warner Bros. television series. Len Goldstein and Michael Robin are also executive producers.
The show was also at the lower end of the CBS Drama rating chart this season. This is an average of 5.89 million viewers, with a delay of one week, which is the smallest audience for a drama series on the net.
The CBS Studios unicorn was also at the bottom of the network’s rankings this season. It received an average of 5.05 million viewers, the lowest number for any CBS scripted series this season.
The Walton Goggins-directed comedy was produced by Bill Martin, Mike Schiff. Martin and Schiff are executive producers alongside Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor, Wendy Trilling, Peyton Reid, and John Hamburg.
