The music has come to an end for NBC's Mr. Robinson.

The network has canceled Craig Robinson's sitcom, about a music teacher with bigger dreams of stardom, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

On a happier (non-musical) note, NBC has renewed The Carmichael Show. The show premiered to 4.8 million total viewers, making it the most-watched summer comedy opening since 2007. The critically acclaimed first season took on some heavier topics, including religion and race relations.

The Carmichael Show stars Jerrod Carmichael, David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine and Amber Stevens West (one of the many former Greek stars whose careers are still going strong).

"We're extremely proud of The Carmichael Show, and Jerrod's voice and point of view is a breath of fresh air in a comedy series," said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, in a statement. "This show made a big impact with viewers and critics because it's funny and relatable but also because it's fearless about discussing issues that are significant in the world today."
