After a bumpy start, ABC has pulled The Alec Baldwin Show from its schedule effective immediately. The move comes just four episodes into the new talk show's run and days following the host's arrest for misdemeanor assault in New York City.

The series premiered in October in the 10:00pm Sunday night time slot, making it the first talk show since The Jay Leno Show in 2010 to air in prime time on a major broadcast network. Viewers didn't take to it though, as it stumbled out of the gate with only 2 million viewers for its debut outing. It numbers only dwindled from there in the weeks following.

The Alec Baldwin Show will be returning to finish off its run, though, with its remaining unaired episodes set to resume on Saturday, December 8 at 10:00pm.
