King & Maxwell canceled by TNT

Tags: 

The Turner-owned cable network has opted to cancel the Jon Tenney and Rebecca Romijn starrer after one season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The drama, which opened in June as part of TNT's summer lineup, premiered to a respectable 3.5 million total viewers -- a decent haul but down considerably from its lead-in, Major Crimes. The series did not rank high in the cable network's big roster of summer launches that also included Falling Skies. During the course of its 10-episode season, the series averaged 3.1 million total viewers.
