Zero Hour: Pulled; Is the ABC Show Cancelled?

zero hour canceled?It looks like ABC is pulling Zero Hour off their schedule, at least for next week. The fourth episode of the new TV series had been scheduled to air on March 7th but the listing’s been removed from ABC’s press site.

Zero Hour debuted on February 14th to a disappointing 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.38 million total viewers. Week two saw the numbers drop to a 1.1 rating and 5.39 million and last night’s installment fell to a 1.0 rating with 5.05 million.

We’re waiting to hear if ABC is pulling the series for good or just temporarily. Either way, the show won’t be getting a second season.

Hopefully the network will at least let the five million faithful viewers see the unaired episodes at some point.

UPDATE: Reruns of Shark Tank will air on March 7th and 14th and then ABC will fill the timeslot with season seven of Wife Swap. The remaining episodes of Zero Hour may run this summer. I wouldn’t hold your breath.

What do you think? Do you like Zero Hour? Were you hoping that it would stick around?

Are they bringing Zero Hour back? I love these types of shows. I want show that I need to think when I watch them. Not every TV show needs to have a reality , singing, or bloody theme. Please bring this show back and more like it.

I WAS DEEPLY SADDENED TO SEE JEFF PROBST SHOW CANCELLED . HE IS SO CUTE, WITH HIS SIX PACK ABS , AND HIS DIMPLES ! WHAT A HUNK ! HE AND HIS WIFE ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER. I THINK IT WAS A MISTAKE TO NOT HAVE ADVERTISED THAT HIS SHOW WAS ON. HOPEFULLY SOMEBODY ELSE WILL PICK HIS SHOW UP. I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING HIS SHOW.

I LOVED this show – lots of intrigue and action. I’ve kept checking the listings because I didn’t want to miss a minute. I didn’t realize it had been cancelled. I hope they air the remaining episodes so that others can catch up and the show will catch on!

This is ridiculous! The only type of “entertainment” this world is interested in viewing is reality TV, even though there is nothing “real” about that type of programing. Zero Hour is a drama for intelligent, normal folks who’s brains have not yet turned to cabbage. I wish these TV executives would learn to change their own diapers, grow up, and show us something that articulates itself above a third grade level of understanding.
Shark Tank and Wife Swap…. never watched them or even heard of them but the titles speak for themselves………duh………

Zero Hour is the kind of show we could use more of. Not so mindless. Please bring it back.

They should at least have a mini-series to tell the whole story.

I cannot believe that you cancel the show we started to love. Man get a grip and kept the suits out the real world. Give them something to play with. And tell them to leave things alone.

PLS dont leave the fans hanging;despite ABCs disappointment in low ratings(?) over 5million people(I think thats a lot of us).let us at least get closure to the season.

I really liked this show. It was different!
I can’t stand things like shark tank and wife swap, I want shows that are intriguing and make you think but for some reason every time one comes along its quickly axed for more stupid reality type shows.

At least show the episodes already made…. Not something that has already been seen, you already paid for the episodes anyway they shouldn’t go to waste, for those who do like the show really want to see them.

Here we go again ABC (Always Behind the Community/Time) not knowing what the people want ……take a real chance. You though that you were making a safe choice by bringing back a half bake show like “shark Tank” and a idiot show “Wife Swap”….come on give me a break!

Bring this show back!!! Why air reruns of previous shows when you have episodes that haven’t aired. That doesn’t make any sense at all. This show is the kind of show I really enjoy and can’t wait to see what happens next. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!!
