NBC has made its second cancellation of the 2011-12 season, pulling freshman sitcom Free Agents from its schedule after another poor showing last night. The series had aired a mere four episodes before getting the bad news, each of which failed to draw any significant amount of viewers. When last night's episode rated a lowly 1.0 among adults 18-49 for the second straight week, that was apparently the final straw.

So far this season NBC has failed to attract audiences to many of its shows, and is seemingly not afraid to start cancelling the lowest performers regardless of how early on in the season it is. The network cancelled new drama The Playboy Club earlier this week.

There is no word on what will replace Free Agents in its Wednesday 8:30pm time slot following the already-picked up comedy Up All Night.
