The series was created by Greg Garcia, who also created the hit comedy series My Name is Earl and Raising Hope. Sean Hayes was added to the cast this season, but the faltering ratings ultimately lead to the show being cancelled.

According to Entertainment Weekly, production for the show will shut down after the final episode is filmed on Tuesday.

Since the series premiere, ratings have dropped significantly. The series premiere brought in 13 million viewers, while the season premiere only brought in 8.93. The latest episode only landed 6.48 million viewers. The Millers has also been bringing down the ratings for CBS' freshman hit series Scorpion that airs at 9:00 p.m. on Mondays.
