Fox drops ‘Justice’

Warner Bros. TV will finish out production on skien's 13th episode

“Justice” has been served its walking papers, while “What About Brian” has been given a full-season pickup.

Fox has yanked the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced “Justice” from its lineup, effective immediately. Warner Bros. TV will finish out production on the skien’s 13th episode, but industry insiders said that the show has been effectively canceled.

A Fox rep declined to use the ‘c’-word, however. “It’s been pulled from the schedule,” the rep said.

“Justice” failed to find an audience in two different timeslots. It began the season Wednesdays at 9, then replaced “Vanished” Mondays at 9 p.m. a few weeks ago.

Repeats of “House” will fill the 9 p.m. Monday timeslot for the next two weeks, with “24” slated to air in the slot come January.

While Bruckheimer has one of the best track records in TV, he’s had no luck at Fox. His last skein for the net, “Skin,” failed to make it to a second season.

As for “Brian,” net has ordered another 9 episodes of the J.J. Abrams-produced hour. Skein has been an underdog in the 10 p.m. Monday timeslot, with ABC impressed at how well the show has held on to its “Bachelor” lead-in.
