Word is out that ABC has cancelled The Real O'Neals after its recently-concluded second season. The comedy started out as a midseason entry last year, where it delivered modest ratings during its 13-episode run. The show was moved to the fall for Season 2 but could not deliver enough of an audience in its Tuesday night time slot.
The writing was on the wall when only three episodes were added to its sophomore run, which is short of what would typically amount to a full season for a fall series.
The Real O'Neals followed the O'Neal clan, a seemingly perfect family until shocking truths came to light, causing their lives to take an unexpected turn. But rather than let the revelations ruin their lives, the O'Neals started living more honestly - even it meant their lives got a little messy at times.
