"After careful consideration, we've decided not to continue on with subsequent seasons of Party Down
," said Stephan Shelanski, Starz's executive vice president of programming. "We're grateful to everyone involved in the shows, and are proud to have had them on the channel. Starz remains committed to aggressively expanding our original programming lineup."The cancellations are hardly surprising, as neither series earned big ratings. Despite critical acclaim and a Television Critics Association for best comedy series, Party Down
only pulled in a meager 74,000 viewers Friday for its second season — and now series — finale.

, while Adam Scott
recently signed on as a regular on Parks and Recreation
, a dramedy about a group of suicide survivors, premiered in April and drew 54,000 viewers for its finale Friday.Will you miss Party Down
