NBC Universal's 'Megan Mullally' Out in Syndie Shakeup By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution has pulled the plug on its syndie newcomer "The Megan Mullally Show."
The news comes as no surprise following its lackluster November sweeps performance - a 0.8 household rating, tying "The Greg Behrendt Show" as the least-watched newcomer this season.
Production on "Megan" was halted on Wednesday as a mix of its remaining produced episodes and repeats will continue to air through the end of the month with its final broadcast set for January 26.
NBC Universal executives are said to be eyeing three potential replacements for the series: fellow newcomer "iVillage Live," reruns of Bravo's "Queer Eye" and library hours of onetime staple "Starting Over." The news also means the Peacock-owned company will battle Twentieth Television, whose "The Morning Show With Mike and Juliet" launches January 22, to keep its time periods on the non-NBC owned-and-operated stations.
