Well, that lasted only a few seconds.
ABC has cancelled Zero Hour after three low-rated outings, TVLine has confirmed.
The rookie conspiracy thriller’s Feb. 14 premiere drew 6.3 million total viewers and a 1.4 18-49 rating, making it ABC’s lowest-rated in-season scripted premiere ever. Episode 3 this Thursday sunk to 5 million viewers and a 1.0 rating.
The show will be pulled from the schedule, effective immediately. Encore episodes of Shark Tank will fill its slot for the next two weeks, then Wife Swap will take over the Thursdays-at-8 spot for seven weeks beginning March 21. Starting May 9, Wipeout will fill the hour.
The network has not yet announced when Zero Hour‘s remaining episodes will air.
TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect the show’s passing.
