ABC's latest sitcom has been pulled from the network's schedule.
January 14, 2012
The new comedy Work It has been cancelled after only two episodes. ABC has pulled the short-lived series from its schedule effective immediately, replacing it with repeats of its more popular freshman sitcom Last Man Standing for the foreseeable future.
Work It, which followed two out-of-work men who dressed up like women to find employment, premiered on January 3 with a low 2.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. Things only got worse for its second episode, which dropped 25% down to a 1.5 - prompting the network to yank it from the air.
The Last Man Standing reruns will likely air in the Tuesday 8:30pm time slot until the returning Cougar Town comes back sometime in March. The Courtney Cox comedy has been waiting to be slotted in for its Season 3 premiere, but has yet to nail down a confirmed date.

Now don't get me wrong, I liked Bosom Buddies but these imitation shows or remakes just do not do good for the most part. Hawaii 5-0 is the exception to the rule. An example of a nostalgic show that did not go far as a remake was Charlies Angels. I would think these networks would do better research before doing these kind of shows.
Obviously those too young to remember the show were not considered for future ratings. They took a chance that people like myself would watch the show with the memories of Bosom Buddies. You would think that after the miserable failure of Charlies Angels and their remake attempt they would have learned.
This show might have been good but most people above the age of 35 were not going to give this show a chance. The network had no choice but to acknowledge their poor judgement and cancel the show.
Younger people may have taken a chance on the show at some point but how long should ABC have waited for that? Sponsors insist on ratings and if the show was so poor in it's early ratings that they only got two episodes it is not likely six episodes would saved the show.
Called it!! Knew it never had a chance.
Bosom Buddies rip off from the start.
Did the same guy that created COP ROCK come up with this crap. I wish I could get hired to come up with this garbage.
"DON'T UNDERSTAND PEOPLE ".... IT'S A FUNNY SHOW...
