After two seasons BET is pulling the plug on The Quad, starring Anika Noni Rose, Jasmine Guy, Peyton Alex Smith, Jazz Raycole and Ruben Santiago-Hudson. According to Deadline, “The series dipped in ratings from its first to second season. Season 2 averaged a 0.2 in the adults 18-49 demographic and 553,000 viewers per episode in Live+Same Day according to Nielsen, each metric down around 30% from the first season.”
