The quarantine comedy has been pulled from the schedule.
November 2, 2020
NBC has pulled Connecting... from its schedule after just four episodes. The move comes halfway through the comedy's 8-episode freshman run, with its remaining four episodes slated be released online on nbc.com and streaming service Peacock.
While the series received decent review from critics, it ultimately failed to draw a sizeable audience on Thursday nights. In its place through November 19, NBC will air episodes of Superstore in the 8:30pm time slot.
Made to reflect the coronavirus era, Connecting... follows a group of friends whose plans for 2020 went out the window after the global pandemic hit. They try to stay close - and maintain their sanity - by using video chat to share the highs and lows of their lives. Sick of isolation and quarantine, they lean on one another as they look forward to a better day.

All networks should take note. Remove all COVID story lines from your shows or this will be your fate.

I'm with Khelben on this. We need escapism right now, not a reminder about what's actually going on in the world and our current daily predicament.

A classic disconnect on many levels.

Whoever thought people would want to watch this should be fired.

Exactly what everyone said above. This show was utter nonsense...maybe when we’ve had time to actually absorb what in the f we have been dealing with and they can retool it properly this can be something but now....best cancellation so far

Good, no one wants to watch something about this and not so soon

I recorded the first episode and couldn't even watch it after ten minutes. Horrible show.

Shocked that it lasted 4 episodes.
11/02/20 at 05:38pm
Yeah.... too soon!

I don't think anyone wants to watch a show with that specific premise these days…
