debramessing-70208The USA Network has canceled the Debra Messing-starring drama series The Starter Wife.  The show premiered last fall after a successful six-hour miniseries in 2007.  The 10-episode first season had a lower than expected audience, drawing an average of just 2.4 million (low for a network whose top shows regularly pull in 4-6 million viewers).

USA tells Entertainment Weekly that the show was a “critical and creative success,” adding that the Dec. 12 season finale served as a “satisfying conclusion” to the franchise.
