This just in — “Anchorwoman” is dead, yanked by the network after one airing that drew ratings lower than Lauren Jones’ neckline. Just think of how this messes will all those office betting pools on which new show will be the first casuality of the fall season. It’s August 23rd, fer chrissakes…

The first outing was the last for Fox’s “Anchorwoman,” the reality-comedy-improv-hybrid show about Lauren Jones, a real-life former WWE lady wrassler and swimsuit model who became a real-life news anchor for tiny KYTX-TV Channel 19 in Tyler, Texas. Hourlong skein opened Wednesday at 8 p.m. to an average of 2.7 million viewers and a 1.0 rating/3 share in the adults 18-49 demo. It came in No. 5 out of six, just ahead of CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” repeat.

On the bright side, those 2.7 million viewers represent more than 25 times the population of Tyler (94,146 projected for last year), which lies about a hundred miles southeast of Dallas.
