FOX Axes 'Skin,' Adds 'Millionaire'
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX has canceled its freshman drama "Skin" after just three weeks on the air. The move comes on the heels of the show's disastrous performance last night where it snagged a paltry 1.8 rating/4 share among adults 18-49 and only 4 million viewers overall according to fast national data. The news was announced via press release this afternoon.

In its place, FOX plans to double-pump episodes of "Joe Millionaire" on Mondays at 8:00/7:00c and 9:00/8:00c starting next week with its two-hour finale now back on for November 24. On Thursdays, FOX will replace its weekly "Skin" replay with encores of "The O.C." To review, here's a breakdown of FOX's Monday and Thursday schedule for the remainder of November sweeps:

Thursday, November 6:
8:00/7:00c - "Tru Calling: Putting out Fires"
9:00/8:00c - "The O.C.: The Heights" (Repeat)

Monday, November 10:
8:00/7:00c - "Joe Millionaire: Episode #205"
9:00/8:00c - "Joe Millionaire: Episode #206"

Thursday, November 13:
8:00/7:00c - "Tru Calling: Brother's Keeper"
9:00/8:00c - "The O.C.: The Perfect Couple" (Repeat)

Monday, November 17:
8:00/7:00c - "Joe Millionaire: Episode #207"
9:00/8:00c - "Joe Millionaire: Episode #208"

Thursday, November 20:
8:00/7:00c - "Tru Calling: Past Tense"
9:00/8:00c - "The O.C.: The Homecoming" (Repeat)

Monday, November 24:
8:00/7:00c - "Joe Millionaire: Episode #209"
9:00/8:00c - "Joe Millionaire: Episode #210" (Season Finale)

Eight episodes of "Skin" were produced before its cancellation, leaving five installments unaired. Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Jim Leonard were the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Hoosier Karma Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
