LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC has pulled its much-ballyhooed comedy "Work It" from its lineup after two airings, bookings by the network confirmed this evening.
The series delivered 5.10 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 this past Tuesday, a 20% decline from its premiere audience in the key demographic (2.0 adults 18-49 rating).
The Alphabet gave its previous Tuesday, 8:30/7:30c occupant "Man Up!" the hook after posting similar numbers (4.77 million viewers, 1.6 adults 18-49 rating) on December 6.
Repeats of lead-in "Last Man Standing" will fill the time period for the rest of the month.
Said development was followed by a barrage of tweets from "Cougar Town" co-creator Bill Lawrence, who indicated he's "hoping CT's premiere date will be announced Tuesday."
