Mike Epps' "Uncle Buck" Cancelled By ABC

mad eek They didn't even give it a chance. Too bad. It was the only sitcom currently on television that I could bare watching.

Uncle Buck's stay is over, EW has confirmed.

The ABC comedy starring Mike Epps will not return for a second season, as Tuesday night's episode will serve as the series finale.

Originally ordered to series in May 2015, Uncle Buck, based on the 1989 John Hughes film starring John Candy, was held on the bench throughout the entire traditional 2015-16 TV season and didn't launch until June.

James Lesure, one of the show's stars, broke the news on Wednesday when he tweeted, "Disappointed. No more @ABCUncleBuck. Cancelled. Thankful," he said in part, continuing, "Proud of what we've done. Thx 4 let us entertain u."

Good. It should never have been made to begin with. I am glad that they resisted the temptation of casting someone like Kevin James in the role but Mike Epps is not much of a step up.

It should've been called, "After Black-ish"

The 1990 series didn't last that long either. TV executives out there, let's rest on an ok John Candy movie already.

It never had a chance going up against Tyler Perry's Have And Have Nots.
I watched 2 episodes before HAHN returned and it seemed like it had potential.
I never watched the original. If I'm gonna watch a John Candy movie it's
gonna be The Great Outdoors.

Previews looked boring, I didn't even know it was on the air yet but I would have given it a chance. Oh well, Epps needs to magically resurrect on Survivors Remorse, he was great on that.

In fairness, I've never seen any stand up. He might be a good comedian. I've seen a few movies he was in and thought they were crap though.

I do think it's a bit strange for you to make that statement though. If I don't agree with you, I don't know much about the topic?

I know comics and Mike Epps is ok, no Richard Pryor but he is ok. A million times funnier than Kevin Hart I give Mike Epps that.

And Martin Lawrence. Loved him on his 90's sitcom. But, as a stand-up comic? One of the worst I've seen.

Couldn't stand anything he was in. I tried, but no.

Good point. Since when is "Mike Epps" the one who sets the bar in stand up???

I watched a couple of stand-up shows, as well as a few short clips on YouTube but I'm still not overly enamoured with him. He's ok. His stand-up is definitely better than any of his shit movies. He's pretty good but the majority of his act is just comparing how black people do things to how white people do things. I'm kind of thinking, "yeah, that's a funny observation, but I liked it best the first time I heard it when it was done by Richard Prior, Eddie Murphy, Alonso Jones, Chris Rock, Chris Tucker, Bernie Mac etc". Only personally, I think they did it better. Maybe it's unfair to expect him (or anyone else) to be up there with Prior or Bernie Mac, but I don't believe not liking him is akin to not knowing good comedy.

Wow, I had forgotten all about that. eek I didn't see much point being that the lead was ... whoever that actor is. neutral
