Second Time No Charm For ‘Playboy Club’ ‘Charlie’s Angels’ & ‘Prime Suspect’: What Went Wrong?

ABC has put the flailing Charlie’s Angels remake out of its misery. The small ratings uptick last night didn’t save the freshman, which has now been canceled, with production on it shut down. I hear ABC intends to run the episodes that have been already made. Sony TV has shot a total of 8 episodes, including the pilot. Four of them have aired. After a low-rated debut, the Charlie’s Angels reboot dropped precipitously for 2 weeks to a 1.2 ratings in adults 18-49 last Thursday before posting a tiny increase to a 1.3 last night. But that turned out to be too little too late…

Here is a summary on where ABC’s fall series with 13-episode orders stand. Freshmen Suburgatory and Revenge have received Back 9 orders, while Charlie’s Angels has been canceled. Sophomores Happy Endings and Body Of Proof have been given script orders: 6 scripts for Happy Endings and 2 for Body Of Proof.
