EXCLUSIVE: TBS’ first hourlong comedy series Glory Daze will not be returning for a second season. The cable network has opted not to renew the once-promising fraternity comedy from creators/executive producers Walt Becker and Michael LeSieur, about a group of friends who are trying to navigate college life in 1980s Wisconsin.
The nine-episode first season of the show had a quiet run, premiering with a soft 1.8 million viewers and a 1.0/3 in 18-49 in November and gradually slipping to wrap with a 1.1 million viewers last month. The show did get a sizable boost from DVR viewership and had a very low median age (just north of 25), but that probably wasn’t enough to keep it from cancellation. One of the actors on the show, Chris D’Elia, just booked a pilot, NBC’s untitled Whitney Cummings comedy. TBS is staying in the hourlong comedy genre with two new pilots, now in production: Hound Dogs and The Wedding Band.
