ABC canceled Downward Dog after 6 episodes. The comedy, which will have a 2-part series finale tomorrow, June 27, dipped to lows of 3.1 million viewers and .6 among A18-49 last week. But co-creators Samm Hodges and Michael Killen aren’t giving up, writing in a note to fans, “We’re not done. The crazy amazing love you the fans have shown for DD combined with the critical response make us confident there is a future and we are committed to finding a new home.”

The CEO of Murray Energy Corporation is suing Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver, his staff and HBO for defamation for a segment about the coal industry in which Robert Murray was mocked as a “geriatric Dr. Evil.” (Murray has claimed a deadly mine collapse was the fault of an earthquake, while a government investigation pinned the blame on unauthorized mine practices.) “We have confidence in the staff of Last Week Tonight and do not believe anything in the show this week violated Mr. Murray’s or Murray Energy’s rights,” said HBO in a statement.

The delay getting season 3 of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty off the ground isn’t because of conflict  between creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. While season 2 ended back in October 2015, “The reason S3 took long is because it took long to write, because it was S3 of a show that we were scared to make worse than S2 or S1,” tweeted Harmon on Saturday. “It’s a common yet odd phenomenon. Tail-chasing, perfectionism, overthinking?”
