What happended to "Providence"?

I've been watching reruns of Providence on late night TV some, and it looks like it was a nice show.

I assume it's been cancelled. What happened? Not enough viewers, or contract troubles?she

It was cancelled, but there's a strand of hope that it might be brought back by NBC. I think the lead actor (Melina Kanakaredies(sp))just had a baby.

Also doesn't hurt that Leslie Silva has some more free time now that Odyssey 5 is kaput.

OK, found this:

Farewell Providence

First the bad news: four-year-old drama Providence, starring Melina Kanakaredes, got the axe on October 21. "NBC owes a great deal of gratitude to 'Providence,' which turned the lights on for the network on Fridays and has helped keep us number one on the night," said exec Jeff Zucker in a press release. But all the kind words in the world can't hide the declining ratings for the show, which is down 15% from last year. NBC will allow the series to remain on the air until December, when the Hansens will wrap things up with a two-hour send-off on December 20.
Also, the Providence theme song, "In My Life", was written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney and performed by Chantal Kreviazuk (whoever she is).

Lyrics:

There are places Iíll remember all my life
Though some have changed
Some forever not for better,
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living,
In my life Iíve loved them all.
