ABC pulls 'Show Me the Money' and 'Day Break' from its schedule
UPI News Service, 12/16/2006
Television entertainment news out of New York reveals ABC is scuttling some additional shows in its pre-Christmas housecleaning efforts.
The popular Web site Zap2it.com reported Saturday the next-to-go list includes the crime drama "Day Break" and the game show "Show Me the Money." Just a day ago, ABC dropped the comedy "Help Me Help You" from its lineup.
The killing of "Show Me the Money" was a surprise, since just last week ABC had ordered another half-dozen episodes of the show featuring host William Shatner.
The scheduling decision follows weak ratings this week, with both shows hitting new lows in the key adults 18-49 demographic (1.6 for "Money" and 1.4 for "Day Break").
