There is a serial killer on the loose. It's victim?
ABC's Tuesday 10pm time slot.
Wicked City is its latest casualty, canceled after three episodes, but it's hardly the first victim, even if it's one of the youngest.
Tuesdays at 10 PM have been killer for ABC. Last season, they did fairly well with Forever, but it didn't survive to Season 2. Body of Proof had more than one season, but that was the only success story of recent years, which included other deaths such as Killer Women, Mind Games and Lucky 7.
Yeah, we don't remember those, either.
Wicked City isn't the first failure of the season, it's just the first cancelation, after seeing dramatic drops between viewings, ultimately leaving it as the lowest-rated program on an English-language broadcast network this past Tuesday. Ouch.
Other shows that are doomed but will likely air out their initial episode order include Blood & Oil, The Player, Minority Report and Truth Be Told.
