Work It

ABC has cancelled Work It after only two episodes. From The Hollywood Reporter:

The network has pulled the critically panned cross-dressing comedy -- a project only ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee seemed to love -- after two episodes. Repeats of Tim Allen's freshman comedy Last Man Standing will air in its place beginning Tuesday at 8:30 p.m….

Work It premiered lower than its canceled predecessor, Man Up, on Jan 3, drawing a 2.0 in the key adults 18-49 demographic and luring 6.1 million viewers. Its second airing tumbled 20 percent, dropping to a 1.6 in the demo and 5.1 million viewers.

In late December, Metro Weekly took an online poll asking readers if the sitcom should be cancelled or retooled. Fifty-three percent of respondents said it should be canceled even before it aired.
