Kirstie Alley’s TV Land Sitcom Gets Canceled

Kirstie Alley's TV Land Sitcom Gets Canceled

Kirstie Alley was hoping for a huge comeback with her TV Land sitcom, Kirstie. Now it seems as though that comeback simply wasn’t meant to be. The network has officially cancelled the show after just one season.

Alley played the role of Madison Banks, a woman who gave up her son at birth twenty-six years ago. When that son (played by Eric Peterson) wants to reconnect, things change. That reconnection wreaks all sorts of havoc in her life as a Broadway star. Kirstie Alley actually had a pretty impressive cast on Kirstie that included Rhea Perlman (Cheers) and Michael Richards of Seinfeld fame.

Alley took to Twitter to express her momentary disappointment.

Shortly thereafter she turned her attention to philanthropy instead of wallowing in her sorrow.

Kirstie Alley hasn’t been part of a huge hit show on TV since she played her long-running role as Rebecca Howe on the critically acclaimed sitcom Cheers. Her most recent successful TV appearance came on Dancing With the Stars. She was a contestant on the show during its twelfth season, and even though she didn’t win, she and pro dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were the runners up.
