FX has sent it’s fledging series Terriers to the cancellation Kennel. The quirky series, which averaged about 500,000 viewers per episode, starred Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as two best friends who take on the sometimes dangerous role of unlicensed private investigators in San Diego County. The series, which was created by Ted Griffin (Oceans 11), executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and Tim Minear (Dollhouse), ran for 13 episodes before FX made their decision.
FOX has announced that the third season of LIE TO ME has been capped at thirteen episodes and they have declined to order the back nine episodes of the Tim Roth-starring crime drama. Executives at FOX say that Lie to Me has not been canceled and that a decision on the show’s fate is not expected to be announced until May 2011. Meanwhile, The Chicago Code, a new drama from Shawn Ryan (The Shield, Terriers, and, yes, Lie to Me) had already been scheduled to take over Lie to Me‘s Monday night 9 PM time slot beginning February 7, 2011.
