Not Big Enough

Huge Canceled By ABC Family

ABC Family has canceled its summer show Huge, starring Hairspray’s Nikki Blonsky and David Hasselhoff’s daughter, Hayley. The series, which premiered in July, centered on teenagers at a weight-loss camp and was praised by critics for its frank discussion of body-image issues. But Huge’s final episode on Aug. 30 only drew 1.45 million viewers, half the number for its lead-in series, The Secret Life of the American Teenager. One of ABC Family’s other freshman shows, Pretty Little Liars, has already been picked up and Deadline reports that renewal for channel’s third new series, Melissa and Joey, is “imminent.”
