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.

So sorry this show was cancelled. Craig Ferguson is a great host. There isn’t another show like it on television.

This show was different and fooled me many times. It just needed time to grow legs. When a guest exited, it was awkward. The simple answer would have been to have a large mock up of the pneumatic tube. Voted off person steps in, Craig closes a solid shell around them, and a lump of matching clothing shoots up a large transparent tube. Would have been EXTREMELY FUNNY.
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.

Bye bye daddy/daughter show

It was decent... without commercials. I couldn't bear it with commercials. I swear, so many shows are just horrible with the 7 minutes breaks every 7 minutes. I wish a network would figure out that if they show an ENTIRE show then run commercials BETWEEN shows, they'd get more viewers.

Maybe this will give Mr. Ferguson the opportunity to work on a revival of "Celebrity Name Game".

That sucks. I enjoyed it.

Very happy to see this cancelled because it was a giant waste of Craig Ferguson’s talent. I only kept watching to enjoy his banter. The show premise was simply bad.
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.
