[$$] Netflix Ditches ‘One Day at a Time’ Reboot

Netflix Inc. said Thursday it was canceling the comedy “One Day at a Time” because of low viewership, a decision that drew criticism from some fans and critics and underscored how the streaming-video giant is under a microscope as it becomes a bigger player in original programming. The show, which ran for three seasons, was a remake of the 1970s sitcom about a divorced mother raising her two daughters, created by prolific producer Norman Lear. Netflix took the unusual step of commenting in detail on its decision.
