CBS Loses ‘3 Lbs’

Nov 30, 2006  •  Post A Comment

CBS surgically removed “3 Lbs” from its Tuesday night lineup, cancelling the low-rated medical drama after a mere three weeks.

The series most recently averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18 to 49, which was down 11 percent from the prior week and ranked last in its 10 p.m. time slot.

Next week, “3 Lbs” was slated to run in the 9 p.m. hour. Instead, usual occupant “The Unit” will air. No new 10 p.m. show has yet been announced.

CBS is finishing the November sweeps riding high, leading among total viewers for the sixth season in a row and second among adults 18 to 49.
