ABC's "Big Shots" To Get Cancelled?
The production on ABC's freshman drama "Big Shots" starring Michael Vartan is shutting down and the studio has informed the cast and crew on Thursday they won't be coming back after the strike, reports Nikki Finn.
The show which airs on Thursdays at 10 regularly loses over half of the audience of its blockbuster lead-in "Grey's Anatomy."
Last night, an extended episode of "Grey's" which ran till 10:07 scored 19.30 million viewers, while "Big Shots" retained 8.62 million.
Those figures are however heavily impacted by those 7 minutes, and once the final ratings are released, the ratings for "Big Shots" will be even worse.
The network has already preempted "Big Shots" the next two Thursdays; an all-new "Women's Murder Club" airs on November 15 and the 2nd season premiere of "October Road" airs a week after, on Thanksgiving.
ABC has yet to make any official statements about the fate of "Big Shots."
