CBS pulled the plug on a comedy series and is shuffling its prime-time lineup to fill the slot. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network has canceled “Angel From Hell.”
The rookie sitcom, which stars Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson, was pulled after airing five episodes. CBS will fill the Thursday 9:30 p.m. slot with “2 Broke Girls” starting Feb. 18, with a “Big Bang Theory” repeat to plug into the slot this week.
“Angel From Hell” delivered a 1.6 average rating in the key 18-49 demo for its opener, along with 8.13 million total viewers, but its numbers slipped in subsequent weeks. The show hit a low with its most recent episode, pulling 6.34 million viewers for the Feb. 4 broadcast.
It is unknown whether remaining episodes of “Angel From Hell” that have been produced will make it to air.
