ABC Forgets 'The Forgotten'

the forgottenFor those of you finding ABC's freshman drama 'The Forgotten' less than memorable, ABC seems to share your opinion.

Rather than letting Christian Slater's new crime procedural run its course, the network plans to pull the March 23 episode, originally designated as the show's first season finale, and has dubbed next week's episode the season (and probably series) ender instead, the Live Feed reports.

This follows the Alphabet's earlier decision to replace the March 16 ep with a 'FlashForward' clip show (ouch).

'The Forgotten' has had a hard time finding a foothold in the ratings since its Sept. 2009 debut, which begs the question of why ABC opted to renew the drama for an additional five episodes after canning the more compelling 'Eastwick' midseason, just when the dramedy was starting to build momentum.

At this point, Christian Slater probably thinks it's something personal -- this looks to be the second primetime drama in as many years to get the chop with him headlining, following the cancellation of 'My Own Worst Enemy' on NBC two years ago.
