What former Emmy-winning actor may soon be looking for another show if the ratings don’t improve?
If you’re thinking Kelsey Grammer, you’re on the right track. A couple of weeks into the new season and ABC’s Wednesday sitcom lineup seems to have three potential hits and one likely to be canceled, judging by the ratings.
According to B&C, "Hank" fell sharply last night, to a 1.6/5 a week after debuting with a 2.3/7, while "The Middle" slipped only slightly from last week’s 2.5/7 to a 2.1/6.
The 9-10 p.m. sitcoms, "Modern Family" and "Cougar Town" did better, 3.2/9 for the former and 3.1/8 for the latter, which tied it for second place with Fox’s "Glee."
