Latinx representation on TV broadcasts remains gloomy.
On Tuesday, September 15, ABC announced the cancellation of its latest multi-camera comedy, United We Fall, according to Variety. While the ratings for the show were not terrible, the series did not immediately manage to capture viewers’ hearts and minds after the premiere in July and the season finale in August, getting a poor average audience score of 33 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Unfortunately United We Fall was one of very few TV shows that positively illustrated what it’s like to be Latinx, and it’s unfortunate to receive the news at the start of Hispanic Heritage Month. Cast Will Sasso, Christina Vidal Mitchell, Jane Curtin, Guillermo Diazand Ella Grace Helton, it followed the main characters Jo (Mitchell) and Bill (Sasso), mother and father of two young children and the subject of lots of parental criticism from the father figure̵
Basically, it was ripe for drama.
