The WB Pulls Down Its 'Green Screen' for Sweeps
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The WB is giving "Drew Carey's Green Screen Show" a break as the network plans to pull the show from its schedule for the remainder of the November sweeps period.

In addition, fellow Thursday newcomer "Blue Collar TV" will permanently shift to Fridays at 9:30/8:30c following "Reba" beginning November 12. Repeats of "Charmed" had been airing in the Thursday, 9:00/8:00c hour in recent weeks.

The news comes as little surprise for "Green Screen" as last week's installment earned a paltry 1.4 rating/2 share in households and a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 according to preliminary fast national Nielsen data. Said numbers were down 33.33% in households and 42.86% in adults 18-49 from lead-in "Blue Collar TV" (households: 2.1/3; adults 18-49: 1.4).

"Green Screen" nevertheless will remain in production and is expected to return in a new time period later this season.

As for Thursday nights, the Frog intends to fill its two-hour block with movies for the time being. The theatrical "Save the Last Dance" will air this week with an encore of the network's original "Samantha: An American Girl Holiday" on Thursday, November 25.
