And, indeed, it got cancelled, despite having six million viewers - because those six million viewers are, frankly, old.
You'd think that, what with the older generations having more disposable income, this would be a good reason to keep the show running and sell adverts for whatever it is older people buy with their savings. But, no, apparently if you're not advertising to 20-year-olds you might as well not exist.
Apparently the show's owners are in talks with Netflix, because Netflix would be delighted to have a few million extra subscribers.
And frankly, that sounds like a great direction for TV. You pay money to people who make TV that's good enough to keep you paying money for it.
(I'm reminded of the cancellation of Sym-Bionic Titan, which pulled in the kids, got great reviews, and was then cancelled because it didn't produce enough associated toys.)
