ABC cancels Christian Slater’s ‘Mind Games’

'Mind Games’ is the latest casualty to get axed on the old television chopping block. Effective immediately, encores of ABC’s break-out hit ‘Resurrection’ will fill the vacant time slot for the next two weeks. After that, the network will bring back ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ until they launch their summer programming.

‘Mind Games' joins the stunted growth arena along with other short-lived series such as FOX’s ‘Lone Star’ (two episodes), NBC’s ‘Ironside’ (four episodes), CBS’s ‘We Are Men’ (two episodes) and a slew of other shows that did not reach over mediocre ratings.

Slater’s last series, NBC’s ‘Out There’ did not fare so well either in 2013 although it did survive long enough to see five more episodes than ‘Mind Games.’

‘Mind Games’ centered on the complicated relationship between the Edwards brothers; Clark, a bipolar genius in human psychology and Ross, a slick ex-con artist who solved their client’s problems using the real science of human motivation and manipulation.

Along with Christian Slater, the show also starred Steve Zahn from the Oscar winning film ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’
