After just two weeks, FOX is pulling their new Second Chance TV show from its Wednesday night timeslot. Starting next week, the series will air on Friday nights at 9pm, switching places with Hell’s Kitchen. Ratings-challenged Sleepy Hollow will also begin airing on Friday nights at 8pm on February 5th.
The network hasn’t cancelled Second Chance yet but a timeslot change like this certainly doesn’t bode well for the series’ future. Neither do the ratings. The series debuted to a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.71 million viewers. In week two, the ratings dropped to a 1.0 rating with 3.75 million. Last year, FOX cut the show’s episode order to 11 installments though the producers say they requested the reduction.
Here are timeslot change details:

**TIME PERIOD PREMIERE**–“HELL’S KITCHEN” – (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) CC-AD-HDTV 720p-Dolby Digital 5.1

IT’S A GUT-WRENCHING CHALLENGE ON AN ALL-NEW “HELL’S KITCHEN” WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, ON FOX
After the contestants struggle to work together during opening night in the dining room, Chef Ramsay presents the red and blue teams with a communication challenge. Each contestant will wear a chef jacket with the dish they must complete written on the back of the jacket, while their teammates must read off the instructions to that contestant in order for him/her to properly prepare the dish. The team that correctly completes the most dishes will win a relaxing retreat in Santa Barbara, while the losing team must prepare the kitchen for the next dinner service, which involves gutting 100 lbs. of seabass. Later, during the dinner service, the teams will cook their second dinner service for VIP guests, including astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Find out which team will deliver an out-of-this world successful dinner service, and which team will struggle to manage the simplest tasks in the all-new “16 Chefs Compete” episode of HELL’S KITCHEN airing Wednesday, Jan. 27 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

What do you think? Do you like the Second Chance TV show? Will you follow it to Fridays? Should Second Chance be cancelled?
I’ve never understood why the cancel really good tv shows.maybe you should of tried a Thursday or a Tuesday to air the shows it was well written and i think it was a mistake fox canceled the show to bad Netflix didn’t pick it up
My husband and I have been watching this on Hulu. We really enjoy the show. We were sad to find out it was only one season. Please find a new network to air it on if Fox won’t do it. I know its been a few years since it last aired. But it would be Exciting to see this show return in the spotlight.Tge actors are great and the story line is fun and suspenseful. With technology advancing so fast these days, this show really shows the futuristic possibilities as well. Please bring it back.
Just like Fox to cancel a good show. This is why I rarely watch shows on Fox. They suck.
I just finished watching the first season of Second Chance. Please bring it back!!! It is an excellent drama. Please take it to Season 2 and don’t leave me and other viewers who enjoy the show disappointed.
Second chance was a great show! Been so looking forward to its return and now it’s saying it’s been cancelled totally? Very very disapointed in Ohio ;(
This was a GREAT show! What the heck is wrong with FOX? They leave crappy shows on, and get rid of good ones.
It is such a good show.. Love it. Please dont cancle it. I would be so disapointed. Especialy looking at it on imbd. And it has a7.7 rating?! Thats good isnt it??! I realy realy dig this show!!
Please dont cancel show!!!! Its awesome and been waiting to see next episode until i decited to google whats going on and i cant believe it!!! Thats one of my top favorite shows on Hulu!!
I don’t have cable or satellite or anything like that. All we have are dvd’s and HULU we watched Second Chance on there and LOVED it!!! Canceling is a huge mistake!!
I love this show ,Please do not take it off Its a great show and I look forward to watching it every week , You can take off one of your stupid gay shows that you force on us that we do not care to watch Like 1 percent of the population is gay and you put on plenty of shows for them Please leave this show on a take one of those gay sitcom shows off instead
Always cancelling the good shows. So sick of it FOX! do you even check to see how many people are watching on Hulu? Keep the show.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all 11 episodes of the series “Second Chance.” Pulling it from the line up regardless of it’s air date is insane! Even though I don’t get the opportunity to watch it while it’s airing, I always make sure to record it or watch it on Hulu! Cancelling this show would be a huge mistake!!
I enjoy Secon Chance and I hope you give it the opportunity it deserves. It’s a series about what we all want, but one man was lucky enough to receive.. Because of a young genius who wants to save his sister he sort of clones a person who has the genetics his sister needs to cure her illness. It’s interesting and fun to watch as family learn the truth and basically how it each series unfolds. If you can’t make that work, then something is broken on your end. Because everyone I talk to loves Second Chance.
Please don’t cancel we love it. It is interesting, exciting and the actors are really good and there is humour too. Everything you need in a great series.
