ABC cancels ‘Charlie’s Angels’

Network shuts down production on series

“Charlie’s Angels” has become ABC’s first cancelation of the fall TV season.

The network confirmed Friday that production has shut down, though episodes that have already been shot will continue to air in the Thursday 8 p.m. time slot for the time being. At least seven episodes are believed to be in the can.

Rumors of its demise had been circulating all week were all but confirmed when the series barely inched up a tenth of a ratings point Thursday, to 1.3 rating/4 share in 18-49, 6.0 million total viewers. The series has aired four episodes to date having launched on Sept. 22.

No word yet on whether ABC has settled on a permanent replacement in that time slot but special “The Great Pumpkin” has been skedded to Oct. 27.

On Thursday, ABC had better news, ordering full seasons of Wednesday series “Revenge” and “Suburgatory” and six additional scripts of “Happy Endings.”

Sony Pictures Television produced ‘Angels” with Millar-Gough Ink, Flower Films and Panda Prods. Executive producers are Marcos Siega, Drew Barrymore, Nancy Juvonen, Leonard Goldberg, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.
