The CW drama series, "Easy Money" and "Valentine", will be shut down temporarily. Media Rights Capital as the producer of the series has confirmed on Monday, October 13, that the hiatuses are given for about 4 to 6 weeks.
An MRC spokeswoman said that the time-off has the function to give the writers time to finish the script schedule. It also can give time for MRC to examine the shows' ratings which later on can be the basis to decide whether the shows must go on or not.
The series' shooting will continue considering the script orders for 13 episodes are already written.

The similar poor rating also happened to "Easy Money" that got 1 million viewers and a 0.4 rating for its pilot, and received 750,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating for the next episode, down almost 25% from the premiere. This comedy drama series also premiered on the same day as "Valentine".
Media Rights Capital is an independent film and television producer which has an agreement with The CW of producing the network's Sunday night programming.
