Fox Pulls 'Running Wilde' for Sweeps

Keri Russell and Will Arnett in 'Running Wilde'As viewers keep running away from the Mitch Hurwitz--Jim Vallely creation, Fox has announced that it's benching 'Running Wilde' for two weeks during November sweeps.

Although the show has only just returned to screens after being preempted for the last few weeks, deadline.com reports that the next new episode won't air until Nov. 30. Instead, Fox will air new episodes of fellow newbie sitcom, 'Raising Hope,' in the 9:30PM Tuesday slot.

Yesterday we heard that network execs are looking at new Christian Slater comedy, 'Breaking In,' as a possible replacement for 'Running Wilde' at midseason.

With its chances of survival seemingly thin to non-existent, we're left wondering just how long it will be before Fox puts 'Running Wilde' out its misery and cancels it.

Be thankful for the internet. The internet is the only place to actually enjoy media selections anymore, since network and cable TV suck to epidemic proportions nowadays.

What to do, what to do? I have stood firm behind shows that should have stayed too many times: Moonlight, Jericho, Better Off Ted...watch until they go? Stop watching them as soon as I hear buzz---or un-buzz, if you will, that sounds like I have joined another sinking ship? I really don't want to say Goodbye Puddle, but info like this makes me say: goodbye Puddle, I hardly knew you! Hope you don't have to go back to the jungle.

I began to consider myself a jinx for TV shows last season, after more than half of my TIVO list was canceled, and unfortunately, the curse continues. Running Wilde was/is hilarious, albeit irreverent. The episode with Andy Richter had me roflmao. I thought Fox would appreciate and support a show like that, but apparently not. Maybe a cable network can pick it up. Then it won't have to censor the language, like it did in the episode with Paul Shaffer.
