Kelsey Grammer’s 'Boss' canceled after two seasons: Best show canned too early?

Starz has canceled the political drama “Boss” this week after just two seasons. The critically acclaimed show, which stars Kelsey Grammer as a hardball Chicago mayor battling an incurable degenerative disease, has been struggling in the ratings ever since its first season.

In a statement Starz said: "After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to not proceed with [a third season of] Boss. We remain proud of this award-winning show, its exceptional cast and writers.”

The show earned a Golden Globe nomination for best drama, and a win for Grammer’s acting, but attracted just 317,000 viewers to the premiere of its second season — less than half the audience of the first season’s premiere.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Starz has been in talks to bring the series to a close with a two-hour movie that wraps up the plot's various loose ends.
