LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC Family has pulled the plug on its half-hour comedy "10 Things I Hate About You."
Creator Carter Covington announced the news this afternoon via his Twitter account, saying "Sad news... ABCFamily canceled the show :-( Thanks 2 our AMAZING fans - U R the reason I do this! Enjoy the last 5 eps - they're fantastic!"
Said development comes despite a freshman run last summer which was the top draw in its time period among female teens, women 18-34, women 18-49 and females 12-34.
The cable channel has yet to air a half-hour comedy longer than two seasons with "10 Things" being the network's longest-running since "So Little Time" and "State of Grace" in 2002.
