Wedding Called Off, Degrees Eighty-Sixed
I almost didn't use Monday's "Wedding Is Off" ratings headline out of concern that it'd better serve a cancellation announcement. But hey, I'm no cynic. Yet here we are, and Fox has indeed shut down production on David E. Kelley's The Wedding Bells after seven episodes. The show debuted strongly — then again, Supertrain would get 12 mil coming out of Idol — but saw its numbers plunge to 4.5 mil last Friday. "We've been pleased with the show creatively," Fox says in a statement. "[It] just didn't secure the ratings we'd hope for."Speaking of underperforming freshman series airing on Fridays, ABC has yanked Six Degrees effectively immediately, replacing it with Wife Swap repeats starting April 13.
