Stop the presses! After two seasons, Starz has brought their scripted comedy Blunt Talk to an end. What’s that? You’ve never heard of it? Well, you’re not alone.
The series, which followed Patrick Stewart (Star Trek, X-Men series) as British news anchor Walter Blunt while he tries to break into the American market, aired its series finale on December 11th to a paltry 134,000 total viewers. The show was executive produced by Jonathan Ames (Bored to Death) and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, American Dad). The show had the star power and production team behind it (hence why it was granted a 20-episode, two season order from the jump), but ultimately never managed to find its audience.
While this may be bad news for the few people who were watching the show, it’s good news for the rest of us: We just found out that we haven’t been missing out on a show about Patrick Stewart smoking blunts and waxing philosophical. Small mercies!
