Question: What became of a new show called Freakylinks? It just disappeared after a couple of episodes. Thanks.
Televisionary: No mystery there, anonymous friend. The eerie Ethan Embry series seems to have, well, scared the heck out of Fox execs.
After the paranormal show spooked only critics and failed to attract an audience, the network yanked it from the schedule for the rest of the sweeps period. It's supposed to return Dec. 1, but the skeptic in me doesn't believe you should hold out hope for the show's longterm future.
Frankly, the reasons the show is struggling are no big mystery to me. If you're going to create a show with supernatural themes, you'd better choose a more impressive title than Freakylinks, which sounds like a comedy about hippies peddling bracelets.
