CBS confirmed that it has pulled a show from its lineup after airing only four episodes, the Futon Critic reports. Gone from the Sunday schedule is “Same Name,” which has struggled to find viewers.

Repeats of “The Good Wife” will replace the reality show in the 9 p.m. ET hour. Reruns of "CSI: Miami" will follow at 10 p.m. ET.

The network had previously planned to broadcast “Same Name” on Aug. 21 and 28, and those broadcasts have been shelved. The celebrities who were to be featured in those episodes were not announced.

The show’s four broadcasts averaged a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo, with total viewers averaging about 4.89 million.
