Yee-hah! Score one for the Blue States: The CW has pulled the plug on Reba. The sitcom starring former rodeo queen, country music superstar and feisty fireball Reba McEntire and her TV family will say goodbye on February 18th after six seasons. Six seasons on The WB and The CW. We just asked for a show of hands. No one here’s seen a single episode!
And you’d figure ratings might be an issue, because the cancellation has been rumoured for some time. But it turns out Reba ranks as the CW’s most-watched, #1 comedy–just as it was on the WB!The Sunday night Reba, which stars Reba as a wise-cracking white single mom out of Houston, manages to pull in 3.67 million viewers on the mini-network, ahead of all four of The CW’s Monday night comedies: Everybody Hates Chris (2.92 million), All of Us (2.67 million), Girlfriends (2.71 million) and The Game (2.45 million), all of which feature predominantly African American casts.
Reba the sitcom will retire with two back-to-back episode. On March 1, Reba the music legend will be back where she belongs, back on the bus, kicking off a concert tour at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.
