NBC has axed both “Midnight, Texas” and “Marlon” – and unfairly, right before the holidays (come on!).

Both shows got two seasons out of the net before they were given their pink slips this week.

Like a runner who uses all his gusto in the first stretch, both shows started out strong but lost viewers as time ticked on.

“Marlon” has screened its second season, but “Midnight Texas” still has an episode to air – that season finale now being a series finale, and airing next Friday.
