Kidding was canceled in July after two seasons. Though critically acclaimed, season 2 of the comedy-drama series saw a significant drop in ratings. It averaged a 0.02 rating in the 18-49 demo and 89,000 viewers. Compared to season 1, that’s down by 74% in the demo and down by 63% in viewership. It’s one of the cable channel’s lowest-rated scripted series.

Set in Columbus, Ohio, Kidding stars Jim Carrey as Jeff Piccirillo, a beloved children’s television presenter known as Mr. Pickles. Though he anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire, Jeff faces a personal tragedy and difficult family life. The Dave Holstein-created series also stars Frank Langella, Judy Greer, Cole Allen, Juliet Morris, and Catherine Keener.
