The series, despite a roster of notable guest stars including Green's wife Megan Fox, failed to register -- attracting 1.85 million total viewers and 1.1 million in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, with a mere 613,000 in 18-34.

The 10-episode series ended its run Saturday, averaging 1.2 million total viewers heading into what marked its series finale.

The series came TBS continued to ramp up its original scripted comedy offerings behind syndicated repeats of The Big Bang Theory, the No. 1 show in syndication. The network still has originals Sullivan and Son, Men at Work and Cougar Town, which it picked up from ABC, among other scripted fare.

Wedding Band hailed from Fremantle Media North America and Mike Tollin Productions.
