ABC Axes Work It, Cougar Town Boss Hopes for Time Slot

by at . Comments

Doubly good news out of ABC today, or at least the potential for it:

The network has canceled Work It after two episodes, following a decrease in ratings from the 6.1 million folks who (somehow) turned out for the pilot to the 4.8 who watched episode two. In its place, ABC will rerun installments of Last Man Standing...

... until hopefully inserting season three of Cougar Town into the Tuesday night schedule.

That's what creator Bill Lawrence is banking on at least, Tweeting last night: “Hoping CT’s premiere date will be announced [next week]. Fingers crossed... I feel good about Tuesday.”

Amen. Did you see how the Cougar Town will end this season? Let's get to it!
