‘Go On’ Canceled After Just One Season
Go On, Matthew Perry’s newest post-Friends television series, has been cancelled by NBC. The show, which started out strong in the ratings, quickly dropped as the season went on, averaging 5.7 million viewers, according to EW.
Known for his ten seasons as Chandler Bing on Friends, Perry has struggled to find a home on television since the show went off the air in 2004. His two previous attempts at a post-Friends show were both cancelled during their first seasons; Aaron Sorkin’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006-2007) lasted twenty-two episodes and last year’s Mr. Sunshine, created by Perry, barely made it through nine episodes.
Go On, which also starred John Cho and Laura Benanti, recently featured a guest appearance by fellow Friends alum, Courteney Cox, in an episode titled "Matchup Problems."
This is the fifth half-hour comedy to be cancelled by NBC this season, joining 1600 Penn, Up All Night, Whitney, and Guys With Kids.
