And the award for first cancellation of the new fall season goes to…Fox’s Do Not Disturb!
Sources confirm to me exclusively that the critically savaged sitcom, starring a slumming Jerry O’Connell and Niecy Nash, has been axed after three low-rated episodes. The show’s Wednesday time slot will be filled with repeats of ‘Til Death, which upgrades the network’s 9 to 10 p.m. comedy block from excruciatingly painful to unbearably painful. (And yes, that is an upgrade, albeit a very slight one.)
A Fox insider insists no official decision has been made re: Do Not Disturb’s fate. UPDATE: Fox is now confirming the show’s demise.
News comes just days after DND’s producers publicly apologized for making such a crappy show.
