NBC has confirmed that freshman series Love Bites has been officially cancelled. While initial reports pointed to the network shelving the show's last episode, word is now that the final episode will indeed air this Thursday at 10:00pm.

Love Bites has seen its share of struggles since its inception. The romantic comedy was originally planned to air during the 2010-2011 television season, but was met with production issues along the way that included retooling the format of the show. When the series finally premiered last month, low viewership sealed its fate. After earning a modest 1.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic over its first three episodes, it fell to a meager 0.7 for its last three.
