'Show Me,' 'Day Break' Out in Latest ABC Shuffle
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is shuffling its deck chairs once again, pulling both Wednesday newcomers "Show Me the Money" and "Day Break" from its schedule effective immediately.

In addition, production has been halted on "Money's" back-six order (read the story). In total, just five of the show's seven completed installments have aired.

Both "Money" and "Break" hit series lows this past Wednesday among adults 18-49 (a 1.7 rating for the former and a 1.4 rating for the latter), making the news not much of a surprise. "Break" had previously been set to run through December 27 before going on hiatus.

The network is expected to stream the seven remaining episodes of "Break" on ABC.com.

The news marks the Alphabet's first official cancellations of the 2006-07 season. Still sitting on the shelf, but technically alive are "Extreme Makeover" (three episodes yet to air), "Help Me Help You" (four), "The Nine" (six) and "Six Degrees" (seven).

As for their replacements, repeats of "America's Funniest Home Videos" (which currently air on Fridays at 8:00/7:00c) will shift to Tuesdays at 8:00/7:00c starting on January 2 while various repeats of "The George Lopez Show" and "According to Jim" will fill the network's Wednesday schedule on December 20 and December 27.

To review, here's a breakdown of the affected nights:

Tuesdays
8:00/7:00c - "America's Funniest Home Videos" (repeats, as of Jan. 2)
9:00/8:00c - "Big Day"
9:30/8:30c - "Big Day" (as of Dec. 19)
10:00/9:00c - "Boston Legal"

Wednesdays
8:00/7:00c - "George Lopez" (as of Jan. 24)
8:30/7:30c - "According to Jim" (as of Jan. 3)
9:00/8:00c - "The Knights of Prosperity" (as of Jan. 3)
9:30/8:30c - "In Case of Emergency" (as of Jan. 3)
10:00/9:00c - "Primetime"

Fridays
8:00/7:00c - "Grey's Anatomy" (encores, as of Jan. 12)
9:00/8:00c - "Brothers & Sisters" (encores, as of Jan. 12)
10:00/9:00c - "20/20"
