‘Runaway’ flees CW sked

Net has only aired three episodes so far

The CW has sent “Runaway” packing.

The lowest-rated series among all five networks, “Runaway” is off the schedule effective immediately. The CW plans to announce plans for the show’s Sunday 9 p.m. slot sometime today.

Six episodes of the show had been delivered to the net; three had aired so far. Production had apparently halted on the show Tuesday, although Sony Pictures TV was unable to confirm whether it had been shut down for good.

“Runaway” aired for two weeks on Mondays, before moving to Sunday this week — where another low performance sealed its fate.

In its three weeks, “Runaway” averaged just 1.7 million viewers and a 0.7 rating/2 share among adults 18-49. Show starred Donnie Wahlberg as a man who takes his family on the run after being wrongfully accused of murder.

Leslie Hope also starred in “Runaway,” which was created by Chad Hodge and exec produced by Darren Star and Ed Zuckerman.
