Cancellation

With the show financed on a meager budget and heavily sanitized to conform to Teresa Graves' religious morals (she had joined Jehovah's Witnesses since the making of the pilot, and eventually retired from the entertainment industry to focus on her faith), "Get Christie Love!" was soon cancelled.
