ABC cancels ‘The Nine’

LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) — ABC’s low-rated freshman drama “The Nine” — about the aftermath of a botched robbery and hostage situation — has been taken off the schedule, effective immediately.

Seven episodes of “The Nine’s” 13-episode order have aired. On Wednesday, the final night of the November sweeps, ABC will air a special “20/20” in the low-rated serialized drama’s 10 p.m. slot.

I don’t know what’s worse, that I will lose $20 or that Fisch was right.

Ugh or that Audrey might now come back to 24.

    Hey – it hasn’t officially been canceled yet. I’d bet they won’t make the announcement until after the remaining episodes are burned off and that you’ll win on a technicality…

    Doubtful, i stupidly bet that it would be “renewed…” wait, so if it is pulled and then the remaining episodes run, that could count as a renewal, couldn’t it…

    “has been taken off the schedule, effective immediately.”

    Alceste, that doesn’t qualify as canceled yet?

  4. Alceste Says:

    Not in the wacky world of television – it’s stuck somewhere between hiatus and cancellation, as the episodes may still be shown in the future and the network hasn’t foreclosed the possibility of ordering more episodes – cancellation would be an announcement in which the network states that the show will not return – this is just an announcement in which the network strongly implies it…

    Not that “The Nine” was any good, but why the hell is “The War at Home” still running then?

    The problem with the Nine, wasn’t the premise or story. the first episode was EXCELLENT. The problem was that it was the job of CASTING I have ever seen! Tim Daly was only percent who was decently cast. I’m sorry, Scott Wolf will NEVER be a surgeon… EVER.

    […] I owe you twenty dollars. However, since you will lose it all back to me in three days of Scrabble play, I might as well just keep it. […]
