And the bad news just keeps on coming. Only a day after news broke that ABC would not be airing any remaining episodes of Don't Trust the B---- In Apt. 23, Fox has just announced that they'll be pulling their severely underrated comedy, Ben and Kate, from their schedule, and scrapping their idea for a two-hour Tuesday comedy block all together. Will it ever stop?!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, though critically acclaimed, had been suffering from low ratings as of late, and has only been averaging about 2.9 million viewers per episode - low numbers for a network as major as Fox. The effects of this decision will take place immediately, and back-to-back original episodes of Raising Hope will take over the show's timeslot on January 29th. Then, in March, Hell's Kitchen will premiere in Ben and Kate's 8 PM timeslot, followed by New Girl and The Mindy Project.
Sad news. NBC, please don't disappoint us next.
