ABC pulls the poorly rated 'Complete Savages' for sweeps


UPI News Service, 01/26/2005 

ABC has pulled "Complete Savages" because the comedy starring Keith Carradine and produced by Mel Gibson registered a cellar-level TV rating.

The Friday night comedy about a single father raising his sons was replaced with reruns of "8 Simple Rules" at least through the February sweeps period. "Complete Savages" will return in March with a shortened run, Zap2it.com reported Wednesday.

Earlier this week, "Savages" creators Julie and Mike Scully left DVDs and notes for reporters attending the Television Critics Association meeting promoting the comedy, Zap2it.com reported.

"Complete Savages," which Gibson produced and occasionally directed, was No. 94 on network TV.
