CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- CBS has pulled the plug on its legal drama "Century City" after just three weeks on the air.
The series, which revolves around an L.A.-based law firm in the year 2030, pulled in 7.7 million viewers for its most recent airing, the worst first-run viewership in the show's Tuesday, 9:00/8:00c time slot in over four seasons not to mention below every original broadcast of "The Guardian" to date.
CBS plans to fill the Tuesday, 9:00/8:00c hour with repeats of "The Guardian" starting this week. The Eye had originally scheduled "Century City" through April 20 with "The Guardian" returning on April 27.
The move leaves five of the nine produced episodes of "City" on the shelf. Paul Attanasio, Katie Jacobs and Ed Zuckerman were the executive producers of the series, which came from Universal Network Television and Heel & Toe Films.
