LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX is pulling the plug on its summer series "The Princes of Malibu" after just two weeks on the air.
Repeats of "The Simpsons" will take over the show's Sunday, 8:30/7:30c slot beginning this week. A scant 3.96 million viewers tuned into "Malibu's" most recent episode, off a significant 32.42% from its lead-in "The Simpsons" (5.86 million) and 30.04% from its lead-out "Family Guy" (5.66 million). Said numbers were also off a steep 20% from its debut on July 11 (4.95 million).
Nevertheless, a scheduling note by FOX promises: "The previously announced remaining episodes of THE PRINCES OF MALIBU will be rescheduled at a later date."
Gary R. Benz, Brant Pinvidic and Spencer Pratt are the executive producers of "Malibu," which comes from GRB Entertainment.
