The struggling comedy will finish its run online.
October 15, 2019
It appears we have our first cancellation of the 2019-2020 season, as NBC is pulling Sunnyside from its schedule after this Thursday's episode. The move comes four weeks into the comedy's run.
Since its premiere on September 26, the half-hour series has struggled to find an audience on Thursday nights. Its ratings and overall viewership numbers are among the lowest of the freshman class, making it an easy target for the early ax.
In its place beginning October 24, NBC will air the final season of Will & Grace, which wasn't originally scheduled to premiere until early next year. As for the remaining seven episodes of Sunnyside, they will be released online weekly via the network's various platforms like NBC.com and the NBC app.
Sunnyside stars Kal Penn as New York City Councilman Garrett Modi, who ended up losing his way after getting caught up in the glamour and power associated with the position. But when he ended up in trouble for public intoxication, his career was over. When Garrett is hired by a diverse group of idealists who dream of becoming American citizens, it helps him find a new sense of purpose and a chance to redeem himself.

Oh man! This news is totally disheartening for me. I thought this show was really good.

FYI.. the Canadian "Sunnyside" with it's wacky "Laugh-In-esque" skits was 30000% more entertaining than this show was.

"Struggled to find an audience" because it SUCKED!!! None of the characters were likable except the new councilwoman - and she was a "bit part" at most. The premise was decent, but the execution and casting failed miserably. And the whole councilman backstory made absolutely no sense given the plot points.

Ok here it goes, As far as this show just like all new shows I watched the first episode, that was enough for me. The concept was poorly written and just made no sense to me, so I only watched the 1st one. To many new shows and returning ones to try and keep up with this one. Not sure what agenda they were pushing. I will say this I love TV , i'm a fanatic I have well over 60 plus hrs a week And in almost every show it seems that you must have a gay story line why?? Why for a show to be popular / succeed to you have to have and if you have a problem with it why does that make you homo-phobic? you can not like something and thats Ok . I'm from Texas grew up on DR pepper but does that mean I think all coke drinkers are dumb or people who drink coke are they superior to me. No it means we just have a different opinion on what we like, one is not right just as the other is not wrong. I don't mind the gay/ homosexual life style its just not for me. just like heterosexual is not for homosexual people just means we are different and that is OK. you don't have to have a gay story line in every show to be successful. But I do agree sexual preference is not something that a child really knows IMO. Gay , straight, Bi ,Trans.. why dont we let children be just that children.. also why do we have to label sexuality why cant it just be sexual. straight bi gay lesbian we all have the right to be SEXUAL. at the end of the day why does it matter and if a person opinion can shatter your world who is the one shallow minded?

timeless had the right to do cliffhanger endings. you risk cancellation and no ending Like amc's the glades back in 2013 where the lead character gets shot five times. And of course we never got a season 4. so that was that. is he dead? well certainly they hoped for a season 4. timeless was expensive to make , very expensive and it had decent but not great ratings. so it got axed due to the money issue. but at least you got a ending 2 episode event.

I wanted to love it, being from Queens, but it was not a true representation of anybody I ever knew when I lived there. Just stupid all around.

Brenda, Timeless wasn't cancelled only due to ratings, it was production. The producers repeatedly ended on cliffhangers despite being told the show wasn't moving forward to try and weasel another year out of them. It's incredibly inconsiderate to fans and not people a network wants to work with.

Well what do you expect from the ******* network that got rid of highly rated TIMELESS.
Maybe if they kept their higher rated shows instead of getting id of them they would have viewers to watch their network.
