MERRY CHRISTMAS, GOOD-BYE

As if poor Rhode Island doesn't get enough abuse, NBC has axed its feel-good Friday night drama Providence after five seasons. The culprit? Declining ratings. A two-hour series finale will air on Dec. 20. Naturally, the network describes the show's swan song as "a touching, heartwarming send-off for the entire Hansen family." In other Peacock news, NBC has picked up Sunday night newcomers American Dreams and Boomtown for a full season.
