Sorry, "Designated Survivor" and "Quantico" fans: ABC has axed both dramas.
"Designated Survivor," which starred Kiefer Sutherland as a cabinet member who becomes President of the United States after a bomber blows up the current administration (and Congress), saw declining ratings in its second season. Its May 16 season finale will now also be its series finale.
(Admit it: As much as we loved President Kiefer, we still preferred watching him kick ass as Jack Bauer.)
"Quantico," which starred Priyanka Chopra as an FBI trainee, will also air all of its final, abbreviated season. It almost got canceled last year, but received a last-minute order for a shorter third season.
We salute you, President Thomas Kirkman and Agent Alex Parrish. Thanks for (trying to) make the world a safer -- and more entertaining -- place.
