Fox Gives 'Death' a Rest

"Death" is about to take a holiday on Fox.

The network on Wednesday pulled low-rated Brad Garrett comedy "'Til Death" from its lineup, effective immediately. The show will be off the air for at least two weeks, according to program listings released by the network.

During those two weeks, Fox is planning to air repeats of "House" in the 9 p.m. Wednesday slot currently occupied by "Death." Earlier this month, Fox pulled the plug on "Death" companion "Do Not Disturb."

A Fox spokesman said "Death" would return after the November sweeps.

Sony Pictures Television produces "'Til Death," which is currently in its third season.
