'My Generation'Well, that didn't last long.

Following Fox's swift execution of the low-rated 'Lone Star' last week, ABC followed suit and gave the axe to its own struggling new series after just two episodes. The network pulled the plug on 'My Generation' Friday night after it failed to bring in viewers during its first two Thursday night airings.

The documentary-style show followed a fictional group of nine friends from an Austin, Texas high school 10 years after graduation, re-visiting the group to see how their lives and relationships have developed in the decade after high school.

After a low-rated premiere, 'My Generation' dropped 31 percent in its second week, with only 3.9 million viewers tuning in for a 1.1 rating, according to The Hollywood Reporter. There's no word yet on what ABC will air in its place. The remaining four episodes are likely to be released either online or in a burn-off time slot, The Wrap reports.

On cancellation death watch now: NBC's Friday night show 'Outlaw,' which earned its third consecutive week of poor ratings (1.0 adults 18-49) according to TV By the Numbers, and ABC's 'Body of Proof' 'The Whole Truth,' with 4.6 million viewers and just a 1.2 rating.
