The show, which mixed special effects/animation with live action, starred Jenna Elfman as a public relations executive who’s suddenly followed by her imaginary friend from her childhood. Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live) played the voice of Mary.

The critical scorn for Imaginary Mary was anything but imaginary as the show scored only a 25 from RottenTomatoes.com. Only five of the 20 TV critics surveyed by the site said they liked Imaginary Mary.

“There’s actually a decent sitcom in here… but the imaginary friend is completely unnecessary. It feels like a lame gimmick. The show would be better without it,” wrote Scott D. Pierce of the Salt Lake City Tribune.

The viewers also started to become imaginary things as the episodes progressed. The debut episode netted roughly six million viewers, but the last episode, which aired last week, generated fewer than three million.

The final episode is scheduled to air on May 16, 2017.
