FXX has cancelled the comedy, Man Seeking Woman, after three seasons, writes The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, which starred Jay Baruchel as a 20-ish man seeking true love, aired its now series finale on March 8.

Season three was a hit with the critics — 12 of 12 reviewers at RottenTomatoes.com gave Man Seeking Woman high marks — but the ratings sharply declined from seasons one and two with fewer than 500,000 viewers tuning in for most episodes.

Perhaps more damning: The Hollywood Reporter writes that Man Seeking Woman failed to retain 35 percent of viewers of its lead-in show, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, arguably the channel’s most popular comedy.
