Compared to the earlier times, a variety of shows are now available that exhibit different and very amazing formats.
We are going to talk about one such reality show in the article, which has won people’s hearts with its entertaining and remarkable concept. We are talking about The Hustler. The Hustler is a Trivia Game show which is hosted by Craig Ferguson. As per the format of the show, in each episode, there are five contestants who play collaboratively to correctly answer a series of 10 questions, each question worth $10,000. The objective of every contestant is to build the maximum amount of money in a prize pot which increases with each correct answer given.
This seems like a very simple show. So what’s so interesting about it? Well, what’s interesting is that one of the five contestants, The Hustler, already knows the correct answers to the questions because of his interests or experience. Two contestants are anonymously evicted by the Hustler in each episode. Then, the remaining three contestants have to decide and let know who among them is the secret Hustler!
If the two contestants are successful in identifying the Hustler, they get to split the prize money among themselves. Contrary to this, if both of them, are wrong, the Hustler gets to take all the prize money, which could be more than $1,00,000.
The show premiered in 2021 and created a lot of buzz among people because of its different and fascinating format. When the show started at first it was successful in attracting the attention of a lot of viewers. The makers came up with two seasons.

Why was Hustler Season 3 Cancelled?
Everything seemed to be going well for the show. The format of the show was very interesting which featured a group of people collaborating to answer a series of questions for winning prize money. One among the five people answering the questions is a Hustler who already knows the answers to all the questions because of his experiences or his interests.
If the Hustler is identified by the rest of the two contestants who are left at the end of the episode then those contestants get to split the prize money between them otherwise the Hustler gets to take all the prize money.
Not only the format of the show was very interesting but another reason why some people loved watching this show was that it was hosted by Craig Ferguson.
When Craig Ferguson was promoting this show, it was quite evident that he was very excited and happy to be the host of this show.
When the first season of the show premiered in 2021, just after three months, in April, the show was renewed for a second season. The second season also premiered soon. The readiness with which ABC was releasing the seasons of this show made everyone feel that more seasons for the show will be in line. But this did not happen, unfortunately. Instead of coming up with more seasons, the show got canceled. This news came as a very hard blow to the fans who were enjoying watching this show and were expecting more seasons to come.
While some of the people were head over heels for the show, it seems that not many people enjoyed watching this game show. Surprisingly, the main reason why the show was canceled is that people had stopped watching this show. According to the information we have, the second season’s ratings suffered a 44% dropped. This was a reason which was valid enough for the makers to stop making any more seasons for the series.
Another reason that is being given by some people is that the seasons of the show were hurried off and were not promoted well enough.
The bottom line is that the show has been canceled and for those who loved the show, it is a huge disappointment that it is not going to have any more seasons.
