Another well-reviewed Andy Richter comedy has been canceled.

NBC has pulled “Andy Barker, P.I.” after four episodes, replacing the Thursday night series with “Scrubs” starting this week. The program averaged a 2.1 rating among adults 18 to 49, according to Nielsen. The most recent episode was down to a 1.7.

Two more episodes of the series will be run off this Saturday.

Previously Mr. Richter starred in the Fox comedy “Andy Richter Controls the Universe,” which met a similar fate in 2003.
