NBC will replace 'Free Agents' with repeats of 'Whitney', while The CW will fill the 'H8R' slot with 'Ringer' repeats.
Hank Azaria's fear has turned out to be real. He recently tweeted to get people watching his show "Free Agents" which he believed was in danger to get canceled, but the comedy series cannot avoid to get the axe as it kept struggling in ratings.
"Thanks to NBC for giving us a shot, thanks to all who watched Free Agents, and thanks to all who worked on the show -- we had so much fun!!" Azaria wrote on his Twitter after the network pulled the plug on the newbie on Thursday, October 6.
Airing every Wednesday at 8:30 P.M., the half-hour workplace comedy faced a stiff competition from FOX's "The X Factor (US)" and CBS' "Survivor". Its latest episode only averaged 3.3 million viewers and a 1.0 rating in 18-49 demo.
Also recently getting the boot is The CW's "H8R". The new reality series, hosted by Mario Lopez, will be taken off the air after only four episodes. It hit its highest rating last week when taking Kim Kardashian to confront her hater, but the show returned to a soft rating this Wednesday night, October 5 with 1.2 million viewers.
Repeats of another new NBC comedy "Whitney" will replace "Free Agents" starting next week, while "H8R" Wednesday 8 P.M. slot will be filled by repeats of The CW's brand new drama "Ringer".
