Nickelodeon Cancels 'Wendell & Vinnie'


Wendell & Vinnie cast

It seems Nickelodeon is growing increasingly impatient with its live-action comedy series, having canceled 'Victorious,' 'Big Time Rush,' and 'Marvin Marvin' within this calendar year alone. Fans also said goodbye to 'iCarly' too, although that at least got a final season instead of an abrupt cancellation. Now Nick is giving the hook to one of its most recent comedic ventures, 'Wendell & Vinnie.'

'Wendell & Vinnie' stars 'iCarly's Jerry Trainor as Vinnie, an irresponsible man-child that runs a pop culture memorabilia business in LA and basically lives life on his own terms. That all changes when his nephew Wendell's (Buddy Handleson) parents die in a tragic accident. With no other viable candidates available, Vinnie agrees to become Wendell's legal guardian. Helping him adjust to his new gig as a dad are his sister Wilma (Nicole Sullivan) and neighbor Taryn (Haley Strode).

As usual for sitcoms of this ilk, the decisions made by immature Vinnie cause just as much (if not more) problems for the family than do the actions of his young charge. I call this effect "Adam Sandler parenting". Anyway, the 14th of 20 produced episodes aired back in mid-June. Despite the cancellation, Nickelodeon has already confirmed that the remaining six episodes will still be shown, starting this Sunday night in fact. So at least the show's fans won't have to worry about waiting for DVD or Netflix to see the rest.

Did you watch 'Wendell & Vinnie'? Should it have been canceled so quickly?

I love the show. It should be promoted as an adult show though because most people think it's for kids so they aren't watching it.

I only watched the first episode and didn't like it, unlike many other Nick shows.

I definitely see the resemblance, but Eric McCormack is much better looking. Especially with his salt and pepper hair on 'Perception'!

Btw, am I the only one who thinks Jerry Trainor bears a striking resemblance to a young Eric McCormack?
