ABC has announced official cancellation of the family drama, Brothers & Sisters, in order to make room for their new drama pilot pickups for the 2010-2011 season. The cancellation was inevitable as Brothers & Sisters has seen a massive decline in ratings over the course of its 5th season, as the demo ratings (the ratings that actually matters to sponsors/advertisers) declined from a 3.1 down to a 1.8. The writing was on the wall prior hand when ABC cut the budget for Brothers & Sisters and wanted to minimize the cast to lessen the cost. The exit of Rob Lowe (Robert McCallister), followed by Emily Vancamp (Rebecca Harper-Walker) and then Patricia Wettig (Holly Harper) has exemplified that the series cannot attain the high standards it once had in its glory days. After Patricia Wettig left, the ratings fell even faster and Brothers & Sisters could not redeem what it once had in terms of ratings. People left in droves and the numbers kept falling.
The cast did celebrate its 100th episode run during season 5, so there was some celebration. The cast and crew believed that Paul Lee, the VP of Television Media, was not going to cancel Brothers & Sisters and the writing team never created a series finale and just a season finale. However, the season finale of Brothers & Sisters was good enough to be a series finale. The series did end on a positive note. There are still questions to be answered, but we will never know what the answers will be for the future of Kevin & Scotty and their family, Kitty and her new beau, Seth, Nora and her rekindled romance with Brody, and Saul and Jonathan if whether they got married or not.
Luke Macfarlane is still in New York and still doing The Normal Heart on Broadway. He probably has heard about it from his agent or manager that the show has been canceled by ABC (actors are the last to know about everything).
To Luke, we hope you find a new project soon as your fans miss seeing you already.
Thanks to Sherine for the heads up…

An interview was posted with Luke Macfarlane during the Monte Carlo TV Festival. This one is done by OZAP, which is a French entertainment website.
The interview is all in French, and thanks to Stephanie, she gave me an English translation (which I’ve corrected and made some minor adjustments).
Several of the LQ/MQ pics have now been upgraded to HQ (High Quality) status in the gallery. In addition, I added several more HQ pictures from another source that took place during the festival so it may look like repeats but they are quite new.
More pictures of Luke Macfarlane (with Emily VanCamp) have popped up. I can only grab the LQ/MQ versions but they are quite nice still. You can find them after the jump.
It is day 3 of the Monte Carlo TV Festival and finally Luke Macfarlane emerges for the photocall along with co-star Emily VanCamp. The following pictures after the jump, you will see Luke Macfarlane in his new outfit (new shirt, pants, belt, and shoes…all great colors on Luke). Much like his appearance at the 2008 Roma Fiction Festival, Luke is becoming a natural with the spotlight and the flash photography of the paparazzi line.
Hopefully an interview will be coming forth. More word as the festival continues.
