    Cameron Crowe’s tour drama “Roadies” has been canceled by showtime.

    Despite the mega-talent both on screen and behind the camera, “Roadies” struggled to find an audience and was met with mixed reviews. Variety‘s Maureen Ryan wrote that the show “feels like a Spotify playlist in search of a reason to exist,” in her initial review. The finale brought in just over 500,000 viewers, according to Nielsen’s “Live +3” ratings. The 10-episode run wrapped on Aug. 28.

    I thought this show was pretty bad. It missed about every mark it tried to hit.

    With Vinyl and Roadies getting canned instantly maybe these major networks need to go in a different direction with television shows based in the music industry.

    Saw this coming but I loved the show. It brought Halsey, The Head and the Heart, Frightened Rabbits and other cool bands into my life so ill always be thankful for that.

    Ah man.

    I loved this show. Was really looking forward to the next season.

    I had high hopes for Vinyl but it just didn't live up to it. I just stumbled across this and like most things with Cameron Crowe's involvement, I dug it.

    I remember when I first heard about Roadies before it went into production I was SO excited for it knowing Cameron Crowe was involved then I saw all the reviews and feedback pretty much saying it was a mess so I never gave it a shot. Such a bummer.

    I'd say Fox is pretty happy with how Empire has worked out for them
