• Sullivan & Son won’t return to TBS, had impressive three season run

    TBS will not renew Steve Byrne’s sitcom Sullivan & Son for a fourth season. Sullivan & Son averaged about 1.6 million viewers in its third season, losing more than 20% of its audience. The show from comedian Steve Byrne was one of TBS’ first successful original comedies. Byrne created the series about his character working in his family’s bar in Pittsburgh. The Irish/Korean comedian represented a new type of mixed-race America and was able to bring a new type of funny to television. Dan Lauria and Jodi Long also starred in the series as Byrne’s parents. With Sullivan and Son, along with Men At Work, cancelled and Cougar Town closing up shop, Ground Floor with comedian Rory Scovel will be the network’s only returning original scripted comedy. TBS has a few new comedies, including the Rashida Jones-led cop comedy Angie Tribeca, debuting in 2015. As for Steve Byrne, he continues to tour the country and does his signature pose all over the world.
