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.
