Audiences apparently had zero love for Zero Hour.
The network has canceled the struggling Anthony Edwards-starring series after airing just three episodes, TVGuide.com has learned. In its vacant timeslot, ABC will air Shark Tank repeats for the next two weeks, followed by Wife Swap. Wipeout will take over the timeslot beginning May 9.
Zero Hour, which weaves a Da Vinci Code-esque tale, debuted on Valentine's Day to 6.3 million viewers and a 1.4 rating in the 18 to 49 demographic, making it the network's lowest-rated in-season scripted premiere ever. Its second outing dropped to 5.3 million and a 1.1, while Thursday's episode only garnered 5 million and a 1.0.
ABC has failed to find a series on Thursdays at 8/7c that has garnered any attraction. Among the shows that were canceled in that timeslot are the fall's Last Resort and last season's Charlie's Angels.
