USA is writing off the show, airing all the episodes between 12 and 8 p.m. on Dec, 29. The Brashear episode will air second, 1-2 p.m.
"It Takes a Choir" is based on BBC America's 2010 import "The Choir." Both shows feature choir master Gareth Malone attempting to bring unity to schools or communities through music. The USA version is set in the U.S.
It's not altogether surprising that USA soured on "It Takes a Choir." The network also bombed with the similarly feel-good show "The Moment" in 2013. On the other hand, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" knock-off "Chrisley Knows Best" has been more successful, so look for USA to give its audience what they want, which won't be more feel-good shows like "It Takes a Choir."
USA is clearly burning "It Takes a Choir" off to get it off the books by the end of the tax year.
