"Playing It Straight" Off the Air
Fox has apparantly given the boot to "Playing It Straight". The series is no longer listed as airing this Friday. It has been replaced by episodes of prior time slot series "Totally Outrageous Behavior" and "World's Craziest Videos".
Also, the "PIS" website at www.fox.com has removed the day and time listed on the site.
What isn't known is if this is a temporary absence or a more permanent one. "PIS" is still listed as airing next Friday (April 9), but "PIS" was also slated to air this Friday until today.
Best case scenario is that the series will return in a couple weeks or April 2, or the summer. Worst case obviously is that "PIS" enters the TV history books without ever revealing a winner.
The good news is that virtually no reality series has ended without a winner being declared. Several reality series have been pulled and brought back later (a la ABC's "Mole" and "The Family"), but I can't think of any series that never aired all of its episodes - eventually.
