    'Work It' gets laid off ... but no 'Cougar Town' quite yet

    By Rick Porter - January 14, 2012 12:17 AM ET

    The "Work It" era is coming to an end at ABC.

    The network sent a notice late Friday (Jan. 13) that it's pulling the low-rated, savagely reviewed sitcom after just two episodes. Tuesday's show drew 4.9 million viewers and a paltry 1.5 rating among adults 18-49.

    So, that means "Cougar Town" is on its way back in the next week or two, right? Well, not immediately -- but that might not be such a bad thing.

    ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee said earlier in the week that he wants to give Season 3 of "Cougar Town" a "very good launchpad" -- and dropping it into the timeslot of a failed sitcom with no time to promote it doesn't qualify.

    For the rest of January, reruns of "Last Man Standing" will fill the 8:30 p.m. Tuesday spot on ABC. We wouldn't be surprised to see "Cougar Town" take over the time period in February, but if it's going to get a chance to succeed it needs at least a little bit of a promotional push -- and not just from the pockets of creators Kevin Biegel and Bill Lawrence.

    We'll trade a couple weeks of reruns for a proper promotional campaign.

    With "Work It" gone from the schedule, expect an announcement from ABC on its plans for the time period next week.
I had set the "Work It!" cancellation over/under as the premiere date of "¡Rob!" - which was Thursday, so it JUST made the over.

Speaking of which, what's the over/under on "¡Rob!" getting cancelled, because that show is ungodly wretched. What happened to you, Cheech? You used to be cool.

Including me, but I doubt I'll watch it again. I might give it ONE more try. My suggestion: have both Cheech and Rob's wives kick them out of the house and move Cheech and Rob in together. Odd couple/Chico and the Man reboot.

I feel like seeing the commercials for Rob sumed up everything I need to know about every episode that ever airs.

Quality has no bearing on how long a CBS sitcom stays on the air, since seemingly every terrible show on that network is a top-30 hit. Rob! will outlive us all.

I disagree. I'm sure that if Chuck were on CBS, then it would still only be seen by, like, a half dozen viewers.
