Fox has cancelled new sitcom Traffic Light as part of a massive round of modestly-rated show cancellations announced late Tuesday. Also axed were The Chicago Code, Human Target, Lie to Me, and Breaking In.

Traffic Light follows the misadventures of a group of three thirty-somethings at different stages of their lives. The series premiered in February to decent ratings, but slipped during its run to the point where the network obviously opted not to renew the show in favor of something new next season.

12 of 13 planned episodes of the show have aired to this point, with its season - and series - finale set to air May 17. There is no word at this time whether the existing schedule will be affected by the cancellation.
