Turns out, CW has cancelled Emily Owens, M.D. The network will still air all 13 episodes of its original order, but declined to pick it up a full season. The show is shooting its final episode now in Vancouver, with production expected to wrap next week. “Emily Owens” had a poor prognosis from the outset: After its disappointing debut — only 1.7 million viewers and a 0.5 rating/1 share in the 18-49 demo — it has continued to struggle in the ratings. Only 1 million viewers saw the series’ sixth episode.

Emily Owens, M.D. is a medical drama television series created by Jennie Snyder Urman. It was picked up by The CW on May 11, 2012,[1] It premiered on The CW on October 16, 2012, and airs on Tuesdays at 9:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pm Central. The series follows the life of Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer), a first-year intern at Denver Memorial Hospital, where she realizes that her med-school crush Will Collins (Justin Hartley) and her high school nemesis Cassandra Kopelson (Aja Naomi King) are also interning. Emily has to struggle with her affections for Will while trying to battle it out with Cassandra to land the coveted spot as the research assistant of the world-famous cardiothoracic surgeon, Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan).

Another medical drama, FOX’s “Mob Doctor” also received a fatal diagnosis and like “Emily Owens,” will finish out its 13-episode season. The show premiered on September 17, 2012, as part of the Fox 2012–13 network television season. The series was created by Josh Berman and Rob Wright and is based on the book Il Dottore: The Double Life of a Mafia Doctor by Ron Felber. Berman, Wright, Michael Dinner, and Carla Kettner serve as executive producers.

The show is about a young thoracic surgeon becomes indebted to the South Chicago mafia and is forced to moonlight as a mob doctor, while also working full time at Chicago’s most prominent hospital. The show has been met with “mixed or average” reviews. Los Angeles Times gave the show a neutral rating. The New York Post gave the show one and a half stars, saying, “They tried for the tried and true, hoping they’d get The Sopranos meets Grey’s Anatomy while filling the hole House left in the schedule. And, like a camel, they ended up with an animal made by committee”. The San Francisco Chronicle gave the show a 0 rating, saying, “The two-taste-treats-in-one thing worked for Hostess Ding-Dongs, so maybe Fox figured it would work for this ding-dong of a dud for the masochists in the crowd”.
