The Benefactor canceled

25 Oct, 2004

The Benefactor is canceled due to poor ratings before the full season airs. It is reduced to six episodes from an intended eight. A letter from Donald Trump to Cuban following the announcement read:

I am truly sorry to hear that your show has been canceled for lack of ratings. When I initially called you to congratulate you on The Benefactor, little did you or I realize how disastrous and embarrassing it would turn out to be for you. If you ever decide to do another show, please call me and I will be happy to lend a helping hand.
