Fox pulls 'Ben and Kate'

BEN-AND-KATE

Fox is pulling Ben and Kate from its schedule. Yes, both of them!

The move comes after ABC blinked first, yesterday yanking its lowest-rated Tuesday comedy, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23., and doubling down on Happy Endings. Now Fox is shuffling its Tuesday comedy block, removing Ben and Kate and booking back-to-back episodes of Raising Hope starting next week.

Fox says the remaining Ben and Kate episodes will air at some point (there are six left). Given Ben and Kate‘s ratings, the move wasn’t a surprise (if anything, some were shocked the show received an order for additional episodes last fall). This isn’t one of those decisions where you say, “The network didn’t give it a chance.”

Doubling up on Hope through February will make room for the return of Hell’s Kitchen, which will launch March 12 at 8 p.m. and lead into New Girl and The Mindy Project. The network emphasized these changes should not be taken as a bad sign for Hope, noting they plan to give the comedy a one-hour season finale following American Idol on Thursday, March 28.

Geoff Stults is back on TV — and he’s wearing a juice box.

Stults is returning to TV on Fox’s freshman comedy Ben & Kate, so we shouldn’t be surprised there’s a little craziness involved. (Or a lot, depending on your assessment of the exclusive photo below.)

The actor, who starred along with the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the Bones spin-off The Finder, makes his debut as a single father who catches Kate’s eye in the Oct. 30 episode, and he will appear on a recurring basis on the show, which was recently picked up for a full season.

'Ben and Kate' preview: Rob Corddry's 'surprising' effect on Lucy Punch -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

We’ll take that full order of Ben and Kate with a side of Rob Corddry, please!

In the Oct. 23 episode of Fox’s freshman comedy, the Children’s Hospital star — and recent Emmy winner! — guest stars as Buddy, the owner of the bar where BJ (Lucy Punch) works. And if this exclusive shot from the episode tells us anything, it’s that there’s more than workplace matters being discussed here.

“He’s basically Lucy Punch’s male counterpart,” says Corddry. “They are so similar that it makes Lucy’s character act differently.” READ FULL STORY
