It's official: CBS axes 'Swingtown'

Posted on

Swingtown_lDisco is dead. Again.

CBS president Nina Tassler kicked off the net’s portion of press tour this morning by confirming the obvious: Swingtown has been cancelled.

“We’re not going back to Swingtown,” Tassler said. “At the end of the day the show was well executed, it was well received, the performances were great, the writing was great. It was a risk, we took it, and we’re proud of it.”

Other tidbits from Tassler:

• The net plans to order one additional hour of freshman phenom The Mentalist.

• Plans for the NCIS spin-off are going full steam ahead. The new cast will be introduced in an episode of NCIS to air this spring.

Post your Swingtown eulogies below!
