After four episodes, NBC today pulled Best Friends Forever off its schedule. The Wednesday night midseason replacement will itself be replaced next week by a new episode of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers hidden camera series. BFF stars Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair, who also created the show. “BFF Fans: Wanted to let you know that our show is being taken off the air until the summer. Hoping to post ep 5 & 6 online asap. We love u,” said Parham on Twitter “Yes please to a petition! We want to do this show for 1 million years!,” wrote St. Clair on her Twitter this afternoon in reply to a disappointed fan. BFF debuted April 4 with 3.6 million viewers, less than half the viewers of its slot’s previous occupant, Are You There, Chelsea? BFF’s ratings fell 25% by its second airing. The show’s 2.94 million viewers placed it rock bottom, with Rock Center with Brian Williams, of shows on the Big 4 networks. NBC did not announce any dates for broadcasting the remaining two episodes of BFF.
