Huff Has It's Last Therapy Session

Despite its standing as Showtime's most decorated series, "Huff" has reportedly been snuffed.

According to Variety, the plug has been pulled on the Emmy-winning second year series, just as it's approaching is second season finale on Sunday (June 25).

Because Showtime prefers not to release ratings or viewership information -- something about how audience size is less important to the premium cable network than having buzzworthy shows that build the subscription base -- it's difficult to know how numbers for the second "Huff" season compared to the first. Showtime didn't even need ratings, though, to pick up the second season of "Huff," announcing the show's renewal before it premiered.

Thanks to an aggressive screener push, "Huff" earned seven Emmy nominations in 2005, including nods for Hank Azaria as best actor in a drama series and Oliver Platt as best supporting actor, while Blythe Danner won for best supporting actress. Platt also picked up a Golden Globe nomination for his work, while Azaria was a Screen Actors Guild nominee.

Despite all that acclaim, reports indicate that the show never got the anticipated ratings bump.

  • Showtime does this crap all the time. I've stopped watching the channel since it's abrupt cancellation of "Dead Like Me".

  • Seriously, what else do they have? They can't bank everything on Mary Louise Parker and WEEDS (which is amazing)... The lesbians don't come back until 2007, so they could have eeked out another season of Huff!
