The news marks the first cancellation of the 2008-09 season.
As reported last night, FOX will drop the show's October 1 broadcast in favor of an additional first-run episode of "'Til Death." The network will presumably do the same on October 8, after which presidential debate and MLB coverage will fill its Wednesday lineup through the end of the month.
The show's sixth episode was filmed on Tuesday, meaning three installments will sit on the shelf.
For its three broadcasts, "Disturb" averaged a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating - 15% shy of its lead-in "'Til Death" (2.0).
So far this week there have only been 3 shows on the Big 4 networks below a 2.0 adults rating. 'Til Death, Do Not Disturb, and ABC's game show Opportunity Knocks. Opportunity Knocks is reality TV, so it's cheaper to air, but that's still really bad ratings.

That's disappointing, although I blame it on the fact that the show has (apparently) dropped Kat Foster and Eddie Kaye Thomas from the cast ...
The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"
"Worst Week" also has promise. It's odd, the CBS Monday Night lineup has gone from shit-central to a pretty decent batch of shows (if you find something to do for the half-hour Charlie Sheen is stinking the screen up). I wonder if that means I'm getting old?
FOX' Lone Star (tv.ign.com), which I never saw, never heard of and won't miss. Lie to Me* comes back early to take its place. Recently, it's been FOX usually pulling the first plug (see threads from 2008 (The W) and 2007)
