Fox Pulls Low-Rated ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ From Schedule

After a few weeks of miniscule ratings, Fox is pulling alternative series “I Wanna Marry Harry” and “Riot” from its Tuesday lineup. The shows will be replaced by encores of Fox comedies “Family Guy,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “New Girl” and “The Mindy Project,” effective next week.

Unaired episodes of “I Wanna Marry Harry” will be made available for early preview on Fox.com, Fox On Demand, FOX NOW and Hulu, starting tomorrow afternoon. Fox said it’s also looking for a spot on the sked to air the shows on the network at a later date.

Fox had high hopes for “I Wanna Marry Harry,” in which a dozen American women believe they are competing for the affections of Prince Harry (when in reality, it’s a Prince Harry look-alike). It scheduled its premiere to air immediately after the final “American Idol” performance episode of the season. But that May 20 premiere did a mere 0.7 rating/2 share in adults 18-49 and 1.91 million total viewers, according to Nielsen.

On Tuesday of this week, both “Harry” and “Riot” did a 0.4 rating/1 share in 18-49, with the former drawing less than 1 million viewers and the latter pulling in about 1.1 million. No original series on one of the Big Four networks has ever rated lower.
