WB eliminates ‘Elimidate’

'Deluxe' package canned

HOLLYWOOD — “Elimidate Deluxe” has been eliminated from the WB’s primetime sked.

Frog has put the Telepicture Prods. dating skein on hiatus following two low-rated outings. For the November sweeps, the WB will fill the show’s 8:30 p.m. timeslot with a repeat of “Reba” and hourlong segs of “Popstars 2.”

“Elimidate Deluxe” is a primetime version of Telepictures’ syndie strip “Elimidate,” in which a single man or woman goes on a group date with four other people — then picks off the suitors until only one is left.

While “Deluxe” didn’t do well during its two Thursday outings (including an hourlong debut), the syndie version is doing better, leading the pack among relationship gamers and showing weekly improvement.

Meanwhile, Fox has decided to give new laffer “The Bernie Mac Show” a two-episode premiere Wednesday, Nov. 14. Skein will now bow with episodes at 8:30 p.m. and in its regular 9 p.m. slot.
