They Just Cancelled The Michelle Obama TV Show After One Dismal Season

A woke television show that featured a portrayal of former First Lady Michelle Obama has fizzled out after just one season.

According to Deadline, Showtime announced it will not renew its series “The First Lady,” a drama that centered around three former first ladies: Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford, and Michelle Obama.

The series also failed to pick up any major Emmy Award nominations, though it did receive a few nods in technical categories.

Showtime confirmed the cancellation in a statement sent to multiple outlets on Monday, saying the show “will not be moving forward with another season.”

The network did everything it could to try and ensure the show would be a success. If that’s true, why didn’t the show last? Weren’t people watching it?

Showtime’s ‘The First Lady,’ Starring Viola Davis as Michelle Obama, Is a One-Term Flop

There will be no second term for Showtime’s The First Lady, which starred Viola Davis as Michelle Obama. The dramatic anthology series has been canceled after just one season following ridicule from viewers and widespread negative reviews.

The series also failed to pick up any major Emmy Award nominations, though it did receive a few nods in technical categories.

Showtime confirmed the cancellation in a statement sent to multiple outlets on Monday, saying the show “will not be moving forward with another season.”

The First Lady focused the wives of the presidents, with the plan to cover three administrations per season. The first season also starred Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford and Gillian Anderson as Eleanor Roosevelt.

The show was the target of widespread negative reviews, with the New Yorker magazine calling it a “bad-wig costume drama” and Time magazine concluding that Davis and Anderson were “egregiously miscast.”

Many viewers also took issue with the Viola Davis’ decision to purse her lips in imitation of Michelle Obama, with some saying the affectation was exaggerated and distracting.

It sounds like people weren’t too impressed. Maybe Showtime should try making a TV show about Melania Trump. For sure, it get better ratings and reviews.   

By nearly every available metric, the show failed to connect with a majority of Americans. If the few clips included in this article are any indication, America will not be missing out on anything of substance due to the show’s cancellation.
