    This just in...

    Fox has yanked "Anchorwoman" less than 24 hours after the faux news reality-
    comedy hybrid's less than stellar debut on Wednesday.

    "Anchorwoman," chronicling swimsuit model Lauren Jones' dbid to become a
    TV journalist in Tyler, Texas, came in a distant fourth with two back-to-back
    episodes in the 8 p.m. hour. It averaged 2.7 million viewers and a 1.0 rating/3
    share in the adults 18-49 demo, according to Nielsen Media Research data.

    The remaining six episodes of "Anchorwoman' "s eight-episode order will be
    available on the Fox on Demand section of Fox.com and MySpace.com. Its
    spot on the schedule will be taken by repeats of " 'Till Death."

    In addition to heavy promotion, "Anchorwoman" received substantial pre-launch
    publicity as its premise of a model-turned-TV anchor caused a stir in journalistic
    circles and was accused of devaluing the work of serious journalists.

    From what I heard, I did not want to watch this show... and I did not watch this show. However, in the interest of fairness... I must again ask/wonder why a network (FOX in this case) spends all that money on a show and promotions and then pulls it after one-shot?

    I have seen shows I liked pulled in a similar fashion... but so people don't think I'm biased, I wanted to raise the question again about a show I don't like.

    Once again the network folks prove they don't have much of a clue, greenlighting a project and spending money on a bunch of episodes only to pull the plug after the first night. How can they not know this would be so bad?

    Think of shows they passed on that maybe they could have spent the money on in better fashion.

    I saw her "interviewed" somewhere, probably on Fox News, and it looked to me that if she moved from the position that her face was molded into by all that makeup that it would fall off. Obviously, not a natural beauty, and, as I recall, a rather dim bulb upstairs too.

    Dim bulbs save on energy...and call-brand drinks, and pricey dinners at
    four-star restaurants, and expensive weekenders at West Palm Beach. :grin:

    I can't believe a show this dumb would even make the cut. I doubt think there is anyone that could honestly say Anchorwomen would be the next X Files for Fox. Just like Caveman will not be the next NYPD Blue for ABC.
