Fox Cancels ‘Gang Related’

Fox’s drama Gang Related will not be coming back as the network has opted not to renew the undercover drama for a second season. Originally slated for a midseason launch, the action series starring Ramon Rodriguez was given a summer berth instead. It got off to a soft start the last week of May, opening with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 in Live+Same Day. The series didn’t grow but developed a core following and was pretty consistent, ending its 13-episode run with a 0.7 in Live+SD despite a lead-in (0.4, encore Sleepy Hollow) that was a quarter of the lead-in for the premiere (1.5, Hell’s Kitchen). Gang Related, about the members of Los Angeles Police Department’s Gang Task Force, came from Chris Morgan, Imagine TV and 20th TV. Its diverse cast also included Jay Hernandez, RZA, Sung Kang and Terry O’Quinn. Fox brass considered bringing the series back but deemed it too heavily serialized for the summer, the only slot available on Fox for the next year.

Changes in Affiliates

Probably due to being inactive for several months, there were over 8000+ spam applications in the previous affiliation database, and the only solution I found to get around it is to make another database. With that, I cleaned out the dead links and those who are not linking back. To those who applied during the site’s inactivity, you’re welcome to re-apply here. I know, I could’ve accepted those applications, but it’s been months now so I’m not sure if everybody’s still interested. And more importantly, I couldn’t see all the valid applications because of the thousands of spam ones.
