FOX’s Sons of Tucson has only aired four episodes, but the network has now announced that the new series is canceled. Imdb.com lists 13 completed episodes, but it isn’t known if any of them will air at a later date.


I watched the show, but found that it needed some work. The concept, streetwise brothers hiring a slacker to pretend to be their father so that they can stay out of foster care, was interesting, but the show had its problems. While much of the show focused on the often illegal exploits of “fake dad” Ron, weak storylines were put upon the kids, who showed more acting potential. However, the last few moments of the last episode showed some promise, in which Ron took the time to teach his neglected pretend son how to throw a baseball. Also keep in mind that there isn’t really much else on Sunday nights. What do you think? Are you going to miss Sons of Tucson?
