USA has just given the axe to Molly Kagan. According to Entertainment Weekly, the USA Network has cancelled its new series, The Starter Wife.

The show started out as a six-episode mini-series, which earned 10 Emmy nominations and averaged 5 million viewers per episode. However, when USA picked it up as a full series, the numbers dipped to a 2.4 million viewer average. While those are solid numbers, they pale in comparison to the network's Burn Notice and Monk, which consistently average 6 million viewers per episode.

The network released a statement exclusively to the site, which called the series, ""critical and creative success," and also mentioned that the December 12th finale was a "satisfying conclusion" to the series.
