Midseason drama lasts seven weeks
The WB netlet has pulled the plug on its midseason drama “Three,” and will launch a new comedy block in its Monday 9-10 p.m. slot in April, the network has confirmed.
On April 20, the WB will debut Warner Bros. TV’s new Shelley Long comedy “Kelly, Kelly” at 9 p.m. and will move the Sunday comedy “Alright Already” to Monday at 9:30 p.m.
Sliding into “Alright Already’s” Sunday 9:30 p.m. timeslot on April 19 is the new Castle Rock TV midseason sitcom “You’re the One” with Cynthia Geary.
For the next few weeks, the WB will run repeats of “7th Heaven” Mondays at 9 p.m. after the original episode. “Three” suffered from low ratings, but it was pulled in unusually short order for the WB, which typically shows patience.
In its seven airings, “Three” averaged a 2.3 rating and 3 share in Nielsen homes, and 1.3 in adults 18-49. However the show wasn’t improving. It debuted to a 5 share and trended down after that.
Separately, ABC has renewed “America’s Funniest Home Videos” for next season.
