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?
