LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Update: NBC has also canceled "Guys With Kids" and "Up All Night"


NBC has elected not to reelect its presidential comedy, "1600 Penn." Additionally, a person with knowledge of the decision confirmed that "Whitney" has also been canceled.

"1600 Penn's" executive producer Jon Lovett tweeted the news on Thursday. "It's official. 1600 Penn is a cult classic," he wrote.

A spokesperson for its studio, 20th Century Fox, officially confirmed "1600 Penn's" cancelation to TheWrap, as well.

The freshman comedy about a blended First Family living in the White House hit a series low with its finale in late-March. Earning a .7 rating/2 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and only 1.9 million total viewers. It starred Bill Pullman ("Independence Day," "While You Were Sleeping"), Josh Gad ("The Book of Mormon," "21"), and Jenna Elfman ("Dharma and Greg").
