NBC Shelves '20 Good Years' Early, Rolls Back 'The Singles Table' By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has put "20 Good Years" into early retirement while the network's midseason comedy "The Singles Table" has been cut from 13 to six episodes.
"Years" and lead-in "30 Rock" both hit series lows among adults 18-49 for their November 1 broadcasts, falling behind even the CW in the Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c hour.
The Peacock plans to air an expanded two-hour installment of "The Biggest Loser" in place of the duo this Wednesday. The following week "30 Rock" will move to Thursday nights as previously announced while "Years" will head to hiatus. Production however will continue on "Years's" original 13-episode commitment despite its absence from the schedule.
Meanwhile, the "Table" cut comes as the network continues its cost-cutting measures as well as accesses its midseason needs. Production has already been completed on the six half-hours of the series, which comes from 20th Century Fox Television and creators Bill Martin and Mike Schiff.
