NBC has canceled its much-hyped but low-rated series The Event. The news doesn't really come as much of a surprise if you take a look at the show's ratings chart.
After a strong debut in September with a 3.6 in the adults 18-49 demographic, the show plummeted throughout its run, hitting as low as a 1.1 twice in recent weeks.
NBC still has plans to finish out the rest of the season's episodes, with the next one set for this Monday, May 16. The series finale will then air the following Monday, May 23.
With the final episode titled "Arrival", it sounds like fans of the show will at least get to find out what "The Event" actually is.
