'Made In Jersey' cancelled

Somewhere, The Mob Doctor is smiling.

CBS is pulling Friday night legal drama Made In Jersey from its schedule after only two episodes. That makes Jersey the first cancelled TV show of the fall. Undercover Boss will join CBS’ Friday night lineup starting Nov. 2, with CSI: NY advancing to 9 p.m. Until then, repeats of NCIS and Hawaii Five-0 will help fill the night.

Made in Jersey debuted to weak reviews and low ratings, premiering to 7.7 million viewers and a very slight 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. Last week, the┬áJanet Montgomery drama dropped to 5.8 million viewers and a 0.8 rating. Undercover Boss has proven to be a solid Friday performer and having the reality show in the 8 p.m. slot should help CBS’ surviving dramas on the night.

CBS’ other new dramas Vegas and Elementary are considered likely to get full-season orders later this week. No clear sense yet of the fate of new comedy Partners.

Most predicted Fox’s The Mob Doctor would be the first cancelled drama (including us). But there’s a rumor going around that Fox has quietly decided to air all 13 episodes. Fox hasn’t confirmed this, however. With Fox’s baseball coverage and a presidential debate pre-empting Mob Doc in the short term, we’ll just have to wait and see.

What do you think will be the next new fall show to get the boot?

'Made in Jersey' premiere a ratings grenade

CBS’ new legal drama Made In Jersey got off to a poor start in the ratings Friday night, which also saw the final season return of Fox’s Fringe.

Made In Jersey stars Janet Montgomery as a Garden State lawyer moving into the Manhattan big leagues. The drama opened to 7.7 million viewers and a very slight 1.1 rating among adults 18-49, down 39 percent from the debut of CSI: NY in this 9 p.m. time slot. The series also received somewhat lousy reviews, averaging only a 43 out of 100 on Metacritic (one critic dubbed it Snooki’s Law). Both of CBS’ bracketing returning shows, CSI: NY (9 million, 1.3) and Blue Bloods (11 million, 1.5), performed stronger than the newcomer, though both also slipped from last fall. CBS still managed to lead the night in total viewers, though tied ABC in the demo.

Over on Fox, Fringe (3.2 million, 1.1) was lower too, dropping 27 percent from last fall for its final season premiere. (Don’t worry, it’s not going anywhere).
