FOX's "Vanished" Pulled
FOX has decided to pull yet another freshman series from their prime-time schedule making this fall season probably their worst ever.
After scoring season-low 2,9 million viewers last Friday (by comparison even wrestling on The CW posted 4,34 million), FOX's abduction drama "Vanished" will be gone from the schedule for the next two weeks. The drama should return on December 1.
When the Gale Harold-fronted series premiered back in August (on Mondays, following "Prison Break") it attracted almost 9 million viewers. But as the season progressed, the storylines on the show demanded much stronger suspension of disbelief on the part of the viewers and the network lost faith in their leading man, Harold. Following the ridiculous assassination of Harold's character, FOX relaunched the show on Friday nights in November, but the viewers had already abandoned the series.
If FOX honors their commitment to loyal fans of the drama, the remaining four episodes will be burned off by Christmas. The writers have promised to give them a proper conclusion.
"Justice", the series that replaced "Vanished" on Monday nights, has also been pulled earlier this week. "Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy" will take place of "Vanished" this week. Jim Carrey's comedy "Bruce Almighty" airs the following week.
