"Quarterlife" Dies Quickly

quarterlife.jpgWell that was short-lived. NBC's "Quarterlife," touted as a television experiment, will join Fox's "Nashville" and CBS's "Viva Laughlin" in the Quickly Discarded TV Show Graveyard.

The Peacock Network just handed the show its pink slip after a horrible debut last Tuesday. As The Futon Critic reports, "Quarterlife" scraped together a measly 3.1 million viewers, which sealed its fate. Those numbers are pretty awful and caused NBC to have its lowest ratings in 17 years for the Tuesday at 10 p.m. slot. That slot is usually filled by the popular "Law & Order: SVU."

"Quarterlife" followed the lives of six young people between the ages of 20 and 30. It was originally developed and produced for the Internet, but NBC execs figured it could be a good space-filler while most shows went on hiatus during the writers strike. Now that the ‘experiment' didn't work, the show heads back to the Internet. MovieWeb reports that Bravo may eventually pick the show up as well. --Chris Sardelli
