Network television executives canceled two gay comedies this week.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has canceled One Big Happy after airing its first 6-episode season, while CBS pulled the plug on The McCarthys.

One Big Happy's ratings plunged after its premiere in March.

The show – produced by Ellen DeGeneres – centered around a best friend pairing of a lesbian woman (played by Elisha Cuthbert; Happy Endings) and a straight man (Nick Zano; What I Like About You) who decide to have a baby together. A new kind of family is born when Zano's character marries another woman (Kelly Brook).

The sitcom was loosely based on showrunner Liz Felman's (2 Broke Girls) life.

CBS' The McCarthys, which premiere in October, was pulled from the schedule in January, but executives didn't declare the show dead until this week.

The sitcom revolved around a close-knit sports-crazed Boston family and centered on Ronny (Tyler Ritter), who is openly gay. In the pilot, Ronny attempts to spend less time with his family in order to improve his dating life.
