With only one episode left in its run, ABC has yanked In Case of Emergency off the air. The series stars David Arquette, Jonathan Silverman, and Greg Germann as former high school classmates who reunite later in life and discover they're not where they thought they would be at this point in their lives. Last week's episode scored a 1.5 rating, tying with a repeat of Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll.

A repeat of Lost will replace In Case of Emergency this Wednesday at 9 pm.

Even though it's not an official cancellation, it's pretty clear this show is over. ABC also canceled Six Degrees last week. Still on the bubble is What About Brian.

Thats too bad. I thought this was a great show...Come on ABC, air the 13th episode or at least make it available to stream on your website like you did for Daybreak.

My husband and I really enjoyed this show It came on late enough that we could enjoy it but I would really appreciate if abc would air the last episode, or send it to another sister station.

The ONLY reason I saw this show is b/c it was originally paired with the superior Knights of Prosperity. When they killed KoP, I was done.

Positive:
2 incredibly hot women

Negative:
That Germann cat playing the SAME character he has in everything, including Ally McBeal

Bygones!

ABC, thanks for crapping on us again. You couldn't have waited for the last episode? Really?

Adding Tiffani "Amber" Thiessen to the cast of What About Brian pretty much dooms it.

David Arquette is horrible. Any show that has him as the biggest star is doomed from the beginning.

It seems like ABC has had the biggest problem getting their new shows to stick this year.

Maybe its because some of them are actually kind of good, but it seems like they really aren't behind any of these shows, which is really what a show needs to make it work. Think Seinfeld, which really didn't do anything but some of the brass where really behind it.

It's really frustrating for a relatively sophisticated viewer when the conversation is more about will it stay or won't it vs. how good it is.
