I’m not sure if the series improved or not, since I didn’t bother to watch more episodes, but the ratings certainly didn’t reflect any uptake in quality. Sold as a romantic comedy, Manhattan Love Story centered around an arrogant douchebro played by Greek‘s Jake McDorman and an adorkable Meg Ryans-esque sweetheart played by America’s Next Top Model‘s Analeigh Tipton.
Manhattan Love Story, having aired only four episodes, will be pulled from ABC’s schedule immediately. This coming Tuesday ABC will air back-to-back episodes of Selfie before deciding what to replace Manhattan Love Story with on a long-term basis.
I know we wrote a semi-scathing review of Selfie‘s pilot, but the show has gotten much, much better. It’s actually funny and you should give it a(nother) shot! Read my recap of the second episode here.
Are you sad to see Manhattan Love Story go? What do you think is next on the chopping block?
