3: CBS TV Show Cancelled

TV series 3 cancelled by CBS

Well, that didn’t take very long. After a very poor start, CBS has cancelled their new 3 reality series.

The show revolves around a trio of young women — Libby Lopez, April Francis and Rachel Harley — as they live together in a house and date their way through 100 men, looking for Mister Right.

The 3 TV series debuted last Thursday to a horrific 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.4 million total viewers. On Sunday night, opposite NBC’s Olympics coverage, the second episode fell to a 0.5 in the demo with 1.65 million. CBS’ other reality show, Big Brother, performed much better opposite similar competition.

CBS has pulled 3 from the schedule effective immediately. It’s unclear how many episodes will be left unaired or if the network will release them online.

Reruns of CBS dramas will fill the Sunday night at 9pm timeslot until The Good Wife returns on September 30th.

At the Television Critics Association press tour, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler expressed her disappointment over 3’s performance. She said, “It was a show we tried, we were excited about… It didn’t quite get traction. I think overall the summer has been a little bit soft for everybody.”

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that 3 has been cancelled and pulled? Will you watch the rest of the episodes if CBS releases them?

    Thank heaven you axed it. Terrible idea and terrible show. Get rid of some of this reality trash, we get enough reality just trying to survive. Bring back CSI Miami!

    GOOD! It’s dead! Glad CBS put it outta our misery. I couldn’t believe they aired such garbage to begin with! Now, if Bigg Bruddah follows…

    I didn’t watch it, but it seems they should just let it run it’s course in Summer. A lot of us are doing other things anyway, or watching the Olympics.

    Please, please, please bring this show back! I loved it and thought it was finally a fun, clean, honest show that was a relief from other shows where people are just looking for fame and doing anything possible to get attention.

    How has the human species survived this long? How were we ever able to find mates before we made it a game?

    Stephen Colbert said all there is to say about reality television: It warps the minds of our children and weakens the resolve of our allies.
    Honestly: Kill all those shows, every last one of it, and maybe TV will get watchable again.

    This show looks horrible. It’s not even comparable to the actual reality shows that were so inundated with. The girls are boring…and the premise isn’t very intriguing. To be honest- unless your a family or friend of one of these girls…I can’t see how anyone would care to watch this.

    Dating 100 guys? Sounds like a porn version of the Bachelorette, which is already a really ****** show.
