CBS Pulls 'Ex' From Schedule

CBS has made its first major schedule change of the new season, pulling "The Ex List" from its lineup effective immediately.

The move isn't a major surprise given how poorly the show has been faring since it premiered. Overall, the series has averaged about 6 million viewers. Last week, "Ex" dropped a disturbing 20% among adults 18-49, falling to a series low.

CBS hasn't announced any long-term plans for the 9 p.m. Friday slot that had been home to the 20th Century Fox TV-produced show. This week the network will air a repeat of "NCIS" in the slot, which last season was home to fan favorite "Moonlight."

It's unclear if production on the series will continue. Ten episodes have been produced so far, including the pilot; production is under way on the 11th episode. Four episodes of the show have aired.
