Anchorwoman: This Just In… It’s Cancelled!

Anchorwoman Lauren JonesCould former World Wrestling Entertainment model Lauren Jones learn to become a serious TV journalist? Well, few cared enough to tune in to Anchorwoman’s premiere last night and now, FOX has pulled the comedy/reality series from the airwaves.

Anchorwoman debuted with a double dose of half-hour episodes last night. Despite lots of promotion, the episodes attracted an average of just 2.7 million viewers. This poor showing put them in a distant fourth place for the 8-9pm hour — even lagging behind reruns of According to Jim. As a result, Anchorwoman has been pulled from the FOX schedule, less than 24 hours after its debut.

FOX had ordered eight episodes of the series and the remaining six will be released via FOX.com and the network’s page on MySpace. Repeats of ‘Til Death will replace Anchorwoman on Wednesday nights for the next three weeks. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

    I too can not believe the haste in which you removed anchorwoman… I have been searching all evening for the show time .. I loved it and was looking forward to more. I am disappointed!

    WOW. FOX never ceases to amaze me. Firefly shown out of order then cancelled. Drive cancelled 9 days after premiering. Now Anchorwoman cancelled the day after it aired. What’s next FOX? When K-ville airs on Sept 17th are they going to cancel it while it is still airing? This is how I envision the future of watching TV on the FOX network. K-Ville starts at 9PM, commercial break at 9:30PM, return from commercial break to reruns of Family Guy.

    Here’s a novel choice that Fox should consider… try premiering shows online and then start broadcasting the popular ones.

    It would be a change from them doing the reverse.
