No Season 3 for the trivia game show.
April 3, 2022
It is being reported that ABC has cancelled The Hustler after two seasons. The game show premiered in early 2021 and aired two seasons over the course of the year.
Hosted by Craig Ferguson, episodes feature five contestants working together to answer a series of trivia questions with the goal of building a collective prize pot. But one of them is secretly the Hustler, and already knows the answers. As contestants are anonymously eliminated by the Hustler, those remaining collectively decide who they think the Hustler is. If they are right, they share the prize pot. But if they're wrong, the Hustler goes home with the cash.
The networks are very impatient. I guess they are scared to absolute death that baby boomers are dying out. With the crap they keep putting on, younger audiences won't be willing to watch low grade , lowest common denominator crap. The Hustler was actually fresh. Oh well.
Time to go watch something RELIABLE,that being BETTER CALL SAUL.
I watched this with my kid and we loved it.
Bye bye daddy/daughter show
Now Ferguson can find something that suits his improvisation skill and biting wit. Assuming he finds a network that won’t sit on his tongue.
Three game shows cancelled by ABC. It's a good day.
Now if only Craig Ferguson would completely disappear forever like Craig Kilborne, we'd have a straight too.
