ABC not granting ‘Wish’

ABC has decided not to pick up any more episodes of its TGIF comedy “You Wish,” sources said Wednesday.

The sitcom, produced by ABC’s parent studio Disney, is the lowest-rated show in the Friday family lineup. Season-to-date, “You Wish” has averaged a 7.1/13 in households. Originally the show aired at 9 p.m., but last week it was moved back to 9:30 p.m., where it suffered its season low (6.2/11).

“You Wish” will air for the first few weeks of sweeps, but it will be preempted at least once, on Nov. 21, for a special. Sources say Disney’s other new TGIF sitcom, “Teen Angel,” will get picked up.

In total, ABC’s TGIF block is down 17% in households from last season, in part because CBS stole two of its veterans, “Family Matters” and “Step by Step,” for its own Friday family block.
