It wouldn't seem like a network's second most popular show would be at risk for being cut, but that's exactly what happened to A&E's Longmire. The show was very popular with an older demographic, but these are not the kind of viewers advertisers are looking for. They'd prefer the median age of a show's viewer be a couple decades younger than 60, which is what it was for Longmire. The other problem? A&E didn't own the show, Warner Bros did. Now, the production company is looking for a new home for the show, possibly turning to Netflix or other online streaming services.
