NBC has decided to drop the new comedy.
May 10, 2013
NBC has cancelled freshman series Go On after one season. The Matthew Perry-led laugher premiered last September and was picked up for a full season a month later. Ratings for the show were solid during the first half of its run, but dropped off dramatically to finish the season.
Go On is the fourth comedy axed by NBC this week, along with 1600 Penn, Guys with Kids, Whitney, and Up All Night.

It's getting to a point whereby the humour in shows is just too clever for the average dumb-ass to understand and that is the demographic that studio execs seem to want to cater for.

Yep, another poor decision made by NBC execs. And a promising new comedy, killed in its infancy before it really had a chance to blossom. Another wasted chance to 'grow' a new 'Office' or 'Cheers'......

Signed! Thanks Mr. Pseudonym.
I really enjoyed this show. One of the few that I would try not to miss.

Wow! I consider myself a pretty good judge of a good show. They did a great job with each and every character. How this show got the boot is insane to me. My brother-in-law does not watch any show until it's picked up for a second season. I told him a 1000 times just give "Go On" a chance. He loved it! Yet, he was right after all. Sorry Bill

FY, NBC. This was a good show, maybe too good for your standards. Get back to crappy TV and see how you like it.

WHAT????!!! I loved this show!!! Really disappointed in this network decision...

I loved Go On from the beginning. I never missed an episode and will really miss the show. I laughed and cried and saw a lot of what has happened in my own life through these characters. Loss of a loved one is difficult and handled in many ways. They treated loss with respect but with some laughs, too. So, of course, it was canceled.

Matthew and John Cho were the only good characters on the show. the members of "the group" were so forgettable I can't even remember their names. I guess for comedy's sake the writers had to make them pathetic, but they were all just way too exaggerated. and since Matthew's character would obviously never hang out with them outside of the group, as soon as he "got over" losing his fiance, the show's over. they kinda painted themselves into a corner from the very start.

Go On and The New Normal were two of my favorite shows on NBC, especially GO On. With so many shows failing, maybe the execs that runs these networks should take a look in the mirror and figure out what they are doing wrong.
