It looks like the cross-dressing guys of Work It are out of work again. ABC has cancelled the new sitcom, pulling it from the schedule after just two episodes.
Work It revolves around a pair of unemployed guys — Lee Standish (Ben Koldyke) and Angel Ortiz (Amaury Nolasco) — who get jobs at a pharmaceuticals company when they apply dressed as women. The cast also includes Beth Lacke, John Caparulo, Rebecca Mader, Rochelle Aytes, Kate Reinders, Kirstin Eggers, and Hannah Sullivan.
This week’s installment dropped like a rock, down 20% to a 1.6 in the demo with only 5.1 million.
ABC pulled Man Up! after the sitcom posted similar numbers and now they’ve yanked Work It, effective immediately. Repeats of Last Man Standing will fill the timeslot for the remainder of the month. The unaired episodes of Work It may surface over the summer.
Cougar Town fans are hoping that their sitcom will return sooner than expected. Series co-creator Bill Lawrence tweeted that he’s “hoping CT’s premiere date will be announced Tuesday.”
What do you think? Are you sorry that Work It has been cancelled? Do you think the show’s as bad as everybody says?
