So much for love. ABC has canceled its romantic comedy Manhattan Love Story after four episodes, making it the first victim of the fall TV season, TV Line reports.

The series was struggling in the ratings, with its most recent episode drawing only 2.62 million viewers and a paltry 0.7 rating in the coveted 18-to-49 demographic.

The comedy starred America's Next Top Model vet Analeigh Tipton and the lightly bearded Jake McDorman as a mismatched couple falling in love in New York City. Its gimmick was that viewers could hear the lead characters' internal monologue via voiceover, with the idea being to reveal how men and women really think. At least early on, that went something like "men love sex and women love purses."

This has been an unusually forgiving fall, with no shows getting canceled until October 24. Last year, ABC was also the first network to swing the axe, giving Lucky 7 the boot on October 4.
