Fox has announced that its My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss reality parody series which last aired on Sunday, December 12 versus CBS's special Sunday night finale of Survivor: Vanuatu and was preempted on December 19, has been put on hiatus until January.

My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss is scheduled to return to the network's broadcast line-up on Sunday, January 16 at 9PM, at which time it will resume its ten-episode run with the broadcast of its sixth episode.

A ratings bomb that drew only 4.4 million viewers when it premiered on November 14, the Fox Apprentice parody series hit even lower lows when it aired versus the Survivor finale, drawing only 3.4 million viewers and a 1.6/3 rating/share in the Adults 18-49 demographic.

The performance placed My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss 92th in the week's weekly rankings, marking it as Fox's worst primetime television performance of the week.
