ABC Pulls ‘The Assets’ From Its Lineup

ABC is pulling low-rated drama “The Assets” from its lineup just two episodes in, replacing the program with “Shark Tank” repeats on Thursdays at 10 p.m. for the next three weeks.

The Paul Rhys starrer clocked in 2.9 million viewers during its second episode broadcast last night following a record-low debut on the Alphabet on Jan. 2.

ABC ordered the eight-part miniseries last summer.

Show, which centers on 1980s CIA Cold War culture, is produced by Morgan Hertzan, Rudy Bednar and Andrew Chapman. “Assets” is based on the book “Circle of Treason: A CIA Account of Traitor Aldrich Ames and the Men He Betrayed” by vet CIA officers Sandra Grimes and Jeanne Vertefeuille.
