UPN Axes 'Jake 2.0,' Brings in 'Player'
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- UPN has pulled the plug on its freshman drama "Jake 2.0" as production was halted on the series this week.

Repeats of "America's Next Top Model" are expected to continue to fill the Wednesday, 9:00/8:00c hour for the time being. At least four installments of "Jake 2.0" are known to have been produced beyond the 12 episodes that have actually aired. It's not clear if UPN will stick with its previously announced plans to air three new episodes of "Jake" during February sweeps (read the story).

To date this season, "Jake" has averaged a paltry 2.14 million viewers making it the least-watched drama this season on the six major networks. "Jake" also held a less than spectacular 68.50% of lead-in "Star Trek: Enterprise" on average. Last season, the short-lived drama "The Twilight Zone" averaged 2.86 million viewers and a 66.32% retention rate during the same period.

Meanwhile in other UPN news, the netlet has committed to eight one-hour episodes of "The Player," a new reality series from executive producer Don Weiner ("Showtime at the Apollo"). Details about "The Player" are sketchy however it's believed to involve a group of ethnically diverse young singles as they are tested in their dating skills. Weiner created the series, which is expected to debut this summer, along with Cary Woods, Scott Nemes and Happy Walters.
