'Savages' Get Cut to 19, Pulled from Schedule
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC's freshman comedy "Complete Savages" is getting the hook as the network announced today it has pulled the series from its schedule effective immediately as well as halted production following its 19th episode.

Repeats of "8 Simple Rules" are set to fill the Friday, 8:30/7:30c half-hour for the next three weeks ("Coach" on January 28, "Secrets" on February 4 and "Car Trouble" on February 11). "Savages" however is expected to air its four remaining installments following the February sweeps period.

To date this season "Savages" has averaged a far from stellar 6.09 million viewers, making it the Alphabet's least-watched comedy.

Meanwhile, ABC has confirmed some additional details about its February sweeps schedule:

-- "The Bachelorette" will wrap its third season with a two-hour finale on Monday, February 28 at 8:00/7:00c. "The Men Tell All" special will air the previous week in its regular 9:00/8:00c slot while "After the Final Rose" will follow the finale at 10:00/9:00c.

-- Taking a cue from NBC, the Alphabet will "supersize" the Tuesday, February 22 broadcasts of "My Wife and Kids," "The George Lopez Show" and "According to Jim" to 40 minutes each. ("Rodney" will pre-empted that week to make room for the expanded episodes.) Also getting a boost: "Hope & Faith" and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," both of which will air back-to-back new episodes on Friday, February 18 and Sunday, February 13 respectively.

-- And it wouldn't be sweeps without special guest stars: Gina Torres and David Anders return to "Alias" on its February 23 and March 2 episodes; Robert Patrick will appear on the February 16 installment of "Lost"; Paula Abdul guests on "Less Than Perfect" on February 4; and Rue McClanahan turns up on "Hope & Faith" on February 4.
