ABC Family Cancels Raven Symone’s “State Of Georgia”

ABC Family Cancels Raven Symone's "State Of Georgia"

How did this past by us? Oh well you can’t be everywhere all the time, but last Friday ABC Family announced it that was cancelling Raven Symone’s new series State of Georgia, which ran this past summer, due to poor ratings. According to the sources the show, about a struggling actress with a huge ego who moves to New York to jump start her career, drew less then half of the viewers than her previous hit for the network That’s So Raven.

According to reviews for the show, Raven displayed the same sort of over-the-top mugging that she did in her earlier show which was most likely a big part of the problem. That sort of stuff is fine for a kid’s show, but now she’s older (she’s 26), a hell of a lot more slimmer, more mature and her audience has grown up with her. She’s obviously trying to find her place and falling back on the kids stuff isn’t going to cut it.

Perhaps she ought to tackle more serious dramatic roles like for example, say, a dramatic guest spot on Law and Order:SVU or NCIS. Shake things up. Show everyone you’ve grown up.
