ITV1's 'Married, Single, Other' has been axed after poor average ratings of 4.3 million viewers, to make room for new titles
'Married, Single, Other' has been axed by ITV1 after one series.
The decision came after the comedy drama, starring Lucy Davis and Ralf Little, averaged a disappointing 4.3 million viewers per episode despite having a popular 9pm time slot.
A spokesperson said: "ITV won't be commissioning a second series of 'Married, Single, Other'.
"The overall audience fell short of what we need to deliver at 9pm and, regretfully, we've had to make space for new titles."
News of the chop comes shortly after a Facebook campaign for a second series began when actress Amanda Abbington - who played unlucky-in-love Babs - told fans bosses had "refused to commission another series".
However, ITV1 had nothing but praise for the show - which was produced by 'Cold Feet's award-winning producer Andy Harries - in spite of the controversial decision.
The spokesperson added: "This has been a tough decision as it brought warmth and wit to our drama slate. The cast, the writing and the production were all superb."
