"Manhattan Love Story" is the first TV show cancelled for the fall TV season. The show only ran four episodes, with the last one entitled "It's Complicated." This episode focused on Amy and David, as well as on Dana and Jake. Read on for further details. The reason behind the cancellation of ABC's new comedy show is due to poor ratings. Based on Deadline's report, the latest update of "Manhattan Love Story" ratings got 0.7 in adults 18-49 (Live+Same Day). The network decided to pull the underperforming new romantic comedy effective immediately.
The first episode titled "Pilot," which was directed by Jeff Lowell and premiered on Sept. 30, 2014, delivered 4.70 (U.S. viewers in millions). It was then followed by the second episode, "In the Mix, On the Books, and In the Freezer," directed by the same director and premiered on Oct. 7, 2014 delivered 3.03 (U.S. viewers in millions). The third episode, "Gay or British?," was directed by Sue Paige, which aired on Oct. 14, 2014, garnered 2.87 (U.S. viewers in millions). The fourth and last episode, "It's Complicated," directed by Sarah Dunn, aired on Oct. 21, 2014, which garnered 2.62 (U.S. viewers in millions).
Episode 3, “Gay or British?,” highlights were about David and Amy deciding to have a baby. David was actually making a reverse psychology to Amy. He's pretending he didn't like to have kids. But he confessed to Dana that he was doing that to his wife in order to let her decide to make a baby. While Dana and Peter was about to make love, things went wrong. Peter had a stomach problem after they ate in a restaurant. The “big night” didn't happen because when he and Dana went to his place, Chloe was watching TV. When they got into his room, he puked!
So instead of having a wild, Dana and Peter just stayed together, minus the sex.
It was reported that “Selfie” will replace “Manhattan Love Story.”
