CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- As if the past season of "Just Shoot Me" couldn't get any worse, NBC has quietly pulled its Saturday airings of the final batch of episodes of the comedy.
In its place this Saturday, the Peacock has scheduled an encore of its new reality series "The Restaurant." The following week NBC has slated a repeat of its November special "Faith Hill: When the Lights Go Down." The network hopes the move will improve the abysmal 0.9 average rating in adults 18-49 "Shoot" has averaged there since taking over the slot on July 12.
The news leaves seven episodes of the canceled series still in the can. The Peacock had originally planned to burn off all 11 installments left over from the regular season this summer.
Fans of the series will likely have to wait until the 2004-05 season to see the unaired episodes as part of the show's syndicated run.
