We may have a winner ? meaning an expedient loser ? in the dubious race to be the fall season's first canceled series. Fox is bumping this week's episode of Happy Hour (trust me, it's an actual show) in favor of a 'Til Death repeat, meaning the sitcom isn't scheduled to return to the airwaves until Nov. 2, following the network's October baseball coverage. A Fox rep, though, insists to Variety that "no shows have been canceled."

Similarly but less forebodingly, Fox's Justice has had its Oct. 4, last pre-baseball outing scratched, lest it face off against the season premiere of Lost.
