Ground Floor S2TBS is cleaning house.

The Turner owned cable network has cancelled comedy Ground Floor, which hails from Bill Lawrence, Greg Malins and Warner Horizon Television, after two seasons, TVWise has confirmed.

The work-place comedy, which was green-lit under TBS’ previous topper Michael Wright, featured a cast which included Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Briga Heelan (Cougar Town), John C. McGinley (Scrubs), Rory Scovel (Zach Stone is Gonna be Famous) James Earl (Glee), Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect) and Rene Gube (Upright Citizens Brigade).

Ground Floor premiered on TBS in late 2013 to OK ratings, with an L7 audience of 1.7 million viewers, and was granted a second season renewal in March 2014. The show largely maintained that audience across its second season and as such, the decision not to move forward with a third season is understood to have been a creative one.

With the cancellation, TBS, now under the reins of former Fox boss Kevin Reilly, has cancelled ever single one of their original comedy series. Last year, the network dropped the ax on fellow work-place comedy Men At Work and more recently, flagship show Sullivan & Son.

That said, the network wont be hurting for original series this year. In addition to new episodes of former Fox comedy American Dad and the final season of one-time ABC series Cougar Town, TBS also has the debut seasons of new comedies Angie Tribeca, Buzzy’s and Your Family Or Mine in the pipeline.
