The Alphabet network isn't clowning around.

Hot on the heels of CBS' cancellation of Secret Talents of the Stars after only one episode, ABC has decided to scrap its revival of Secret Talent's predecessor, Circus of the Stars. The reasoning behind the move, Variety reports, is ABC's fear that NBC's eerily similar Celebrity Circus - and the wealth of other celeb-based reality shows - would diminish the casting pool and risk making their show under the big top a big flop. NBC, however, is moving forward with its production as planned.
