ABC formally announces 'Push, Nevada' cancellation, series to end October 24th
By Reality TV World staff, 10/10/2002
Susan Lyne, president, ABC Entertainment, today announced several changes to the Network's lineup, including that announcement that "Push, Nevada" will air until Thursday, October 24, culminating the critically-acclaimed series' run with the seventh episode.
Viewers who have been playing along with the game that is woven into the weekly episodes will still have the chance to win the grand prize, in excess of one million dollars. Details will be announced shortly and revised rules will be posted on abc.com.
"Both 'That Was Then' and 'Push, Nevada' are creatively very strong, but we were simply unable to attract a mass audience for them," added Ms. Lyne. "We want viewers of 'Push' to see the outcome of Prufrock's investigation, and airing it through the seventh episode will give closure to the storyline."
