USA Cancels Peacemakers

USA Network late Wednesday canceled its freshman Western-based skein, Peacemakers, despite relatively decent ratings.

The show -- starring Tom Berenger as an 1880s sheriff who uses forensics science to solve crimes -- averaged a 2.3 household rating. But the nine-episode show’s ratings declined precipitously since bowing at a 4.0 in July, with its Oct. 8 finale garnering a series-low 1.7 mark.

Network sources also said Peacemakers’ audience skewed older than expectations.
