ABC Pulls Sitcom From Lineup

Dec 9, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Another freshman comedy has been pulled from the broadcast schedule, TheWrap.com reports. It’s not being called a cancellation yet, but ABC has taken "Man Up" off its schedule, the story reports.

The network still has five unaired episodes in the hopper, and plans to air them at some point, according to the story.

In the meantime, repeats of "Last Man Standing," which had been the lead-in to "Man Up," will now fill the Tuesday 8:30 p.m. time period, the story says.

"Man Up" debuted with a "soft" 2.4 rating among viewers 18 to 49, and its rating has only declined since then. The most recent episode posted a 1.6, the piece points out.

The show’s fate already appeared to be sealed several weeks ago, when ABC unveiled a midseason schedule that showed the new series “Work It” debuting in “Man Up’s” time slot Jan. 3, the story reports.
