The Sun News Network has cancelled Ford Nation after one episode. The show, which featured Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his brother Doug, a Toronto City Councilman, drew a viewership of about half of Canada's households, not enough to secure it a continuing slot on the network's primetime lineup, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Ford brothers also lost their radio show several weeks ago. It's not entirely clear that the show was intended to be the premiere of an on-going series, however. The Toronto Sun describes the episode, taped November 17, as "what could be the first of a regular show." I will forego making any comments about Edsels.
