NBC Pulls "The Black Donnellys"
THIS JUST IN @ 4:30 pm Thurs 4/5: NBC replacing "The Black Donnellys" on April 16 with two "My Name Is Earl" reruns. So last "Donnellys" this coming Monday, unless NBC pulls that one too. --JK
NBC's pulling the plug prematurely on "The Black Donnellys," the dark Irish mob family drama at 10 p.m. Mondays. It will be gone after April 16, and only 8 episodes.
When "Heroes" returns on April 23, it will be followed by "The Real Wedding Crashers," a reality show from "Punk'd" producers Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg inspired by the hit movie. Five impro actors will disrupt a wedding; only the wedding couple are in on the joke, NBC says.
Six one-hour shows have been filmed, enough to get through May sweeps.
What's your prediction: Will "The Real Wedding Crashers" do bigger ratings than "The Black Donnellys?" Bigger than "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip," which was pulled from that time slot in February? Will you miss "The Black Donnellys?" Was anyone watching?
PS: ABC has canceled "Dream Vote" after two broadcasts. Was it the worst show of the season?
