USA has canceled Benched

Overruling the objections of The A.V. Club’s Emily L. Stephens, USA has canceled its freshman comedy Benched. Despite the presence of Happy Endings’ Eliza Coupe, Maria Bamford, and a bunch of other people that, while we like them, now that we think about it have more of a niche appeal, the legal comedy has apparently been pulling only mediocre ratings with no concurrent spike in on-demand and DVR viewing to get the suits excited. No word yet on whether the series will be sold to Netflix on appeal.
