A rumor has been going around this week that the remake series of the classic hit 'Boy Meets World' could be on its last season, but is it?

The rumor began after recent ratings numbers showed a dramatic decline in viewership. The show, which began with a .6 Nielsen rating, has recently been hovering around the .4 mark. The bad ratings news was followed by the leak of photos showing the show's cast crying on set.
