Political Animals, the fantastic miniseries by Greg Berlanti, has been turned into roadkill by USA. According to TV Line, USA appreciated the episodes, but it wasn't enough.
“We are proud of Political Animals, our miniseries that attracted critical acclaim and impacted the cultural conversation this summer,” the network said in a statement. “It was a pleasure to work with Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark and a powerful cast led by Sigourney Weaver. We look forward to collaborating again with these immensely talented creatives.”
Starring Sigourney Weaver,Political Animals earned critical acclaim during its summer run. Unfortunately, its ratings weren’t strong enough to make it competitive with the cable channel’s more popular series.
I believe Political Animals might have done better paired with Suits earlier in the week, instead of trying to compete with popular veteran cable summer series on Sunday nights.
