TBS Cancels 'Sullivan & Son' After 3 Seasons

Turner continues to be clearer its slate after Kevin Reilly has taken over the leadership - with TBS opting not to renew summer comedy Sullivan & Son for a fourth season.

Created by star Steve Byrne and showrunner Rob Long, Sullivan & Son centers on Steve Sullivan (Byrne) who leaves his job as a successful New York corporate attorney in order to take over the family-owned bar in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood.

The third season which aired this past summer averaged 1.6 total million viewers and a 0.6 rating in the key Adults 18-49 demographic.

The cast for the comedy also included Dan Lauria, Jodi Long, Owen Benjamin, Brian Doyle-Murray, Christine Ebersole, Vivian Bang, Valerie Aslynn, Roy Wood Jr. and Ahmed Ahmed.

Executive producers are Steve Byrne, Rob Long, Peter Billingsley and Vince Vaughn. Warner Horizon Television and Wild West Picture Show Productions produced.
