Fox viewers must be suffering from a headache — or else they’re too busy washing their hair — because they passed up their chance to cavort with the “Opposite Sex.”
Fox pulled the plug on the summer drama Wednesday. Six episodes of “Opposite Sex” have already aired, with two segs still on the shelf. The network will run additional episodes of “Ally McBeal” in the show’s timeslot of 8 p.m. Monday beginning next week.
The Warner Bros. Television drama, which had originally been produced as a midseason series, averaged only 4.6 million viewers following its July 17 debut.
The show was originally slated for a Wednesday berth but was pushed to Monday after “Survivor” took the timeslot by storm. The Monday night slot also opened up after “Time of Your Life” — returning for a summer run — quickly fizzled.
“Opposite Sex” focused on an all-girls school that’s rocked after it goes co-ed and brings in three male students. Abby Kohn and Mark Silverstein executive produced the skein.
