Fox Pulls Ryan Seacrest’s ‘Knock Knock Live’ After Two Episodes

Knock Knock Live” has been yanked after just two episodes, Variety has learned.

Fox notified its affiliates Thursday that the network decided to pull the Ryan Seacrest-hosted reality show from its schedule, following less-than-stellar ratings for the summer series.

The July 21 premiere episode averaged a 0.5 rating in 18-49 and 1.7 million viewers overall, marking the smallest demo rating for any Big Four series premiere this summer. Fox is doing a bit better on Wednesday with another newcomer, “Home Free,” which is averaging a 0.9 in the demo and 3 million total viewers through its two weeks.

The Tuesday 9 p.m. timeslot will be filled by a one-hour encore of “The Last Man on Earth” next week, and encores of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Last Man on Earth” going forward.

“Knock Knock” surprises regular people by bringing celebrities to their front door to give them a prize. The July 28 episode featured Justin Bieber, but failed to perform in the ratings.

Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment and Dick Clark Productions were behind the unscripted series, with Seacrest pulling double duty as an exec producer.

Seacrest will return to Fox in January for the final season of “American Idol.”
