TV NBC Cancels "Champions"

"Champions" Canceled at NBC
by Dave Nemetz
June 29, 2018



"Champions" just got KO’ed: NBC has officially cancelled the Mindy Kaling-produced sitcom after just one season, TVLine has learned.

Universal Television, which produced the series, is still shopping it around to other outlets, sources tell TVLine. The first season will continue to stream internationally on Netflix.




The midseason comedy starred Anders Holm (Workaholics) as Vince, the macho owner of a gym who lives with his brother Matthew (Andy Favreau).

Vince’s bachelor existence is turned upside down when his high school girlfriend drops off their theater-loving teen son Michael (J.J. Totah) to live with him so the kid can attend a prestigious performing-arts school.

Kaling co-starred as Vince’s ex Priya, with her "Mindy Project" co-star Fortune Feimster playing gym trainer Ruby.

I'm go out on a limp and suggest that the biggest problem with this show was that if you listened closely, the Michael character was just a variant of Mindy Kaling's character on The Mindy Project. In other words, she's writing the same main character she always does, but she knows she can't play that character can't even have it be female. So she throws it into a young gay man (albeit an arguably offensive stereotype of every gay cliche out there) because it wouldn't sound right in a straight male or even an adult gay man. It just smacks of obvious, lazy writing (as if that's the only way that Mindy Kaling can write) when you get right down to it.

Canceled NBC Sitcom "Champions" Fails to Find a New Home
by Michael Ausiello
Sept. 13, 2018



"Champions" is officially down for the count. Sources confirm to TVLine that Universal Television has been unable to find a new home for the Mindy Kaling-produced sitcom, which was cancelled by NBC in June after one season.

A Universal rep declined to comment.



Debuting in March, "Champions" never found a solid audience, sinking to a paltry 1.5 million viewers and a 0.4 demo rating with its May 3 airing.

The final two episodes aired back-to-back on May 25, with the series finale hitting a new demo low (1.6 mil/0.3).
