Not exactly a great performer at the rating, 'Eastwick' is not getting additional episodes meaning ABC has decided to cancel it.

ABC has started swinging its ax and those unfortunate to get in its way are "Eastwick" and "Let's Dance". While the former had a brief time enjoying some air time, the latter unfortunately never gets the chance to see the light of day. The reality dancing series hosted by Kathy Griffin was supposed to be premiered on November 23.

ABC has decided not to order anymore episodes of "Eastwick". However, the Alphabet still plans to air all the 13 episodes which had been in the first order. So far only 7 out of 13 have been on air but the show will take two weeks hiatus to give room for a live broadcast of Country Music Association Awards and a special interview with Janet Jackson.

Regarding the yanking of "Dance" out of its plan, ABC reportedly had a difficulty in casting which is a "common problem for networks when developing celebrity-driven reality fare," THR's James Hibberd reported. As a replacement, ABC is mulling another reality show called "Find My Family" where people get to meet their long-lost families or loved ones. Six episodes are in the drawer.

The good news is, ABC picked up more episodes of "The Forgotten" which occupies the Tuesdays slot.

Why get rid of Eastwick? I was thoroughly enjoying that show!! Had it set on my dvr so I wouldn't miss an episode! Abc has focused on he wrong shows to get rid of. Take away that stupid one where everyone in the whole world sees their future and give the witches back a spot!

They can have Let's dance. Eastwick is a great show. I can't believe they cancel a cute intelligent shows and keeps dribble like modern family and cougartown which is moronic in nature.
