Certain to ignite new controversy over the television networks' enthusiasm for dramas starring minority actors, CBS on Tuesday canceled City of Angels, the only dramatic television show featuring a predominantly African-American cast, according to today's (Wednesday) Los Angeles Times.
The newspaper observed that several original episodes have yet to air and that the network did not indicate when the show will go off the air. Broadcast at 9:00 p.m. on Thursdays, Angels airs opposite two of the most popular programs on TV, NBC's Will & Grace and ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Despite being reworked extensively over the summer by producer Steve Bochco, it is CBS's lowest-rated primetime program.
