ABC has pulled struggling drama Zero Hour from its schedule, effective immediately.
For the next two weeks, repeat episodes of Shark Tank will air in the Thursday 8 p.m. time slot, with Wipe Swap taking over beginning March 21, running for seven weeks. Beginning May 9, Wipeout will take over. The network did not say when it would air the remaining episodes, but it will likely be during the summer.
The conspiracy thriller, which marked Anthony Edwards' first TV role since ER, premiered to a 1.4 rating with adults 18-49 and 6.3 million total viewers. It was ABC's lowest-rated in season scripted premiere ever. Its last episode on Feb. 28 drew just a 1.0.
With the likely cancellation, Zero Hour becomes the second series to fail in that time slot recently. Last Resort was also axed.
TV Line had first reported earlier that the show had been canceled.
I really liked this show. I can't believe you are putting another stupid reality show on in its place. I am so sick of seeing reality shows on every channels schedules. Don't you people realize that viewers actually like good dramas, comedy, and suspense shows, NOT REALITY CRAP. **** BRING BACK "ZERO HOUR" ****

I thought the show was great and am sorry to see it go. Maybe I should have watched it live instead of on Tivo.
