During the summer months, networks understand that viewership is typically lower than usual. As such, it’s pretty rare for a summer series to be pulled prematurely. For this, and obvious reasons, Creature Comforts is a rare breed.
A version of Creature Comforts was first seen as a 1989 animated short film made in Britain. It featured a group of anmals talking about their life in the zoo. It became a TV series in 2003 in the U.K. A U.S. version debuted on June 4th on CBS and featured animal characters being voiced by everyday people. All of these versions were produced by Aardman Animations who are best known for the Wallace and Gromit films.
The claymation Creature Comforts series debuted to 6.3 million and slipped to 4.5 million the second week. Only 4.3 million watched the third episode and, as a result, CBS has pulled Creature Comforts. Repeats of The New Adventures of Old Christine will fill the Monday at 8pm timeslot for the immediate future.
