NBC Finally Cancels “Young Rock” And “Grand Crew” Because No One Knew They Were Still On


At last, we can play taps for “Young Rock.”

A terrible sitcom about the early days of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the series ran for three seasons, No one watched it. No one knew it was still on the air. Now are national suffering is over.

“Young Rock” can now fade into obscurity.

But NBC — like all the networks — still has shows that no one knows about. One of them was “Grand Crew,” which appeared as a plug in when the network ran out of reruns for other series. Now NBC has cancelled “Grand Crew,” too, although few will realize it. If only it had been called “Grand Cru,” and set in a winery. But it was just a Whinery.

Farewell, you two! See you — or not — on YouTube!
