Another One Bites the Dust

The first to fall was Do Not Disturb. Then Valentine and Easy Money went on "extended hiatus," which we all know is the equivalent of "long term parking" on The Sopranos. Now another new show has gone the way of the dodo.

CBS has crossed "The Ex List" off its schedule [after four episodes].

The hourlong comedy about a woman searching for true love among her ex-boyfriends has been pulled from the network lineup, CBS said Monday. Its Friday time slot will be filled this week by a rerun of "NCIS."

I have to admit, I thought this one looked pretty terrible from the start. As if the whole thirtysomething-woman-desperate-for-a-husband concept isn't bad enough, the show also relied on a ridiculous belief in the clairvoyancy of storefront psychics. Way to young up your image, CBS! What's next, a show about twentysomethings who gather at their local Denny's every night for the Early Bird Special?

Shockingly, Worst Week has not yet been canceled, and the Knight Rider reboot has been picked up for the full season. And for some reason, people are still watching Fringe.
