The following tidbit of information was included in the Programming Insider column on the website www.mediaweek.com today (11/12)...
-Another One-Episode Wonder:
After just one telecast, CBS has pulled the plug on reality series The Will, which debuted with a paltry (and last-place) 4.24 million viewers from 8-9:30 p.m. last Saturday. Other one-episode wonders historically include You're in the Picture (CBS: Jan. 20, 1961 - with Jackie Gleason), Turn-On (ABC: Feb. 5, 1969) and Co-Ed Fever (CBS: Feb. 4, 1979).
A quick visit to www.cbs.com confirms that the network will substitute a repeat (or "encore") episode of "Cold Case" on Saturday, January 15.
With the recent criticism leveled on NBC and Fox about pulling reality series before they are through (i.e. "Last Comic Standing", "Obnoxious Boss", "Playing it Straight"), apparantly CBS has the quickest trigger finger.
