FX Will Not Renew Over There for a Second Season Based on the Series' Ratings Performance Over Its 13-Epsiode RuN.

[via press release from FX]

FX will not renew Over There for a second season based on the series' ratings performance over its 13-epsiode run.

(Please see ratings information below).

Statement from John Landgraf, President and General Manager of FX Networks

"I'm deeply proud of Over There, which was beautifully produced, acted, written and directed. The series was arguably the most critically acclaimed new television show of the year, a fact which made the decision not to renew it all the more difficult. That decision was motivated entirely by Over There's ratings performance and our belief that the numbers were reflective of what the show is about, rather than its quality or entertainment value. While are passionately committed to fostering great television, we are an advertiser supported network and the size of our audience is vital to our bottom line.

"It was a deeply gratifying experience for everyone at FX to work with Steven Bochco, Chris Gerolmo and their immensely talented and dedicated team of collaborators, whose artistry was reflected in each episode."


- For its 13-week run (Wednesdays, 10 PM ET/PT), Over There averaged 2.1 million total viewers and 1.3 million Adults 18-49.

- Over There enjoyed a very strong premiere with 4.1 million total viewers and 2.4 million Adults 18-49.

- Over There leveled off to an average of 2.1 million viewers and 1.3 million Adults 18-49 for episodes 2-9.

- Over There then began a steady decline, eventually bottoming out at 1.35 million viewers and 882,000 for the season finale.

- Over its final four episodes, Over There averaged 1.6 million total viewers and 990,000 Adults 18-49.

- In comparison to FX's other drama series (most recent/current season):

Nip/Tuck is averaging 4.1 million total viewers and 2.9 million Adults 18-49 (#1 in basic cable on A18-49)

The Shield averaged 3.2 million total viewers and 2.0 million Adults 18-49

Rescue Me averaged 2.8 million total viewers and 1.8 million Adults 18-49
