Minute’s over for ‘Hooper’

MacDonald show cancelled, replaced with 'Idol' segs

“A Minute With Stan Hooper” has lived up to its title.

Fox has pulled the plug on the frosh laffer, which starred Norm Macdonald. Thirteen episodes were produced, but only six aired.

Despite some solid reviews, “Stan” never gained any traction in its 8:30 p.m. Wednesday timeslot following “That ’70s Show.” Skein averaged a 2.4/7 among adults 18-49 and attracted an average of 5.1 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen.

Fox tried out the show on Friday night, but the results weren’t any better.

Net doesn’t have to worry about what to fill the slot with: The “American Idol” results show was always skedded to bump “Stan” come January.
