The Hollywood Reporter brings news that the CW drama, which was canceled mere days after the airing of its second episode, will run its course on YouTube. Starting Monday, December 21, the two episodes that were aired in September will be available online, as well as three episodes that were completed but never broadcast.

'The Beautiful Life: TBL,' executive produced by Ashton Kutcher, had managed to build a respectable -- albeit, very small -- fan base with only two episodes, and an online petition to save the show was quickly mounted. While the show won't go back into production to complete the remaining segments of the original 13-episode order, making the five episodes that were produced available on YouTube is certainly a better fate than most canceled shows get.

In September, the show premiered to dismal ratings, with only 1.5 million viewers tuning in; it's second episode drew just 1 million.

'The Beautiful Life: TBL' chronicled the adventures of several up-and-coming models sharing a living space in New York City. The show starred Mischa Barton, Sara Paxton and Elle MacPherson.
