Bad news for new ABC comedy Zero Hour: According to Deadline, the drama has been canceled after just three airings following extremely low ratings. The series premiered to a dismal 1.3 rating in the advertiser coveted 18-49 age group, and numbers continued to fall until the last episode earned just a 1.0 rating. To be fair to the series, however, not many dramas have had luck in that 8 PM Thursday timeslot on the network - most shows that premiered in it crashed and burned after a few episodes or, if they were lucky, a season.

Beginning this Thursday, the network will begin airing encores of Shark Tank in its timeslot for two weeks, followed by seven weeks of Wife Swap. Then, on May 9th, Wipeout will premiere for the summer.

Sorry, Zero Hour - we hardly knew ye.
