Remember When Ed Sheeran Had A TV Show Called ‘The Bastard Executioner’?
To Ed Sheeran’s fans who were disappointed when the “Thinking Out Loud” singer’s TV show was cancelled. We feel for you.
The Irish Examiner had reported that “The Bastard Executioner,” has been recently axed. Showrunner Kurt Sutter–yes, of “Sons of Anarchy”, canceled it.
Sutter said, “The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is ‘meh.’ So with due respect, we bring our mythology to an epic and fiery close.”
It will be recalled that Sheeran previously showed his excitement when he was chosen to star in the show. “It’s a medieval TV show and it’s really, really dark. It’s gruesome and it’s going to be fine because my friend wrote it. He had a musician in his last show and I said. ‘Oh did he audition for that?’ And he said ‘No, but I just thought he would be good in it.’ So I said, ‘Can you put me in your show next?’” he said.

For the non-squemish, here’s one of the gruesome scenes from the show:
Just this weekend, Entertainment Television that Sheeran appeared on “X Factor UK” to perform his new single “Lay It All On Me” with Rudimental. A lot of people reacted on the “ridiculous” amounts of confetti that poured from above as Sheeran’s song reached its peak. They posted their reactions on Twitter. The 24-year-old “Sing”hitmaker got overwhelmed by the sheer amounts of confetti and asked host Olly Murs, “Who’s idea was this? Bad idea.”
