MTV has canceled the rookie drama/comedy, Sweet/Vicious, as the network focuses more on unscripted programming, writes Deadline.com.
Sweet/Vicious, which starred Eliza Bennett and Taylor Dearden, focused on two college students who hunt down sexual criminals on campus.
The 10-episode first season scored a 100 percent rating on RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews. Ten of ten reviewers in the site’s survey gave the show a positive rating.
But Deadline.com writes that Sweet/Vicious generated fewer than 200,000 viewers per episode, which was the lowest-rated scripted show on MTV.
Show creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson told Entertainment Weekly that she may seek another home for the show, possibly with a streaming service.
