FOX giveth and FOX taketh away!
That is, assuredly, what will be said by the fans of the struggling FOX comedy Breaking In, which was brought back to life at the 11th hour by the network after a lackluster seven-episode run last summer. In a rather unprecedented move by the network, the little comedy was rescued from the cancellation axe, getting to air a handful of new episodes over the last few weeks. But, the sad fact that ‘Breaking In’ continued to draw less than stellar ratings, 3 million viewers for its most recent airing on April 3, has seemed to spell its downfall.
That’s right. News has come down, courtesy of the folks over at TV Line that ‘Breaking In’ has been pulled by FOX for the remainder of the season. That doesn’t bode well for any struggling show let alone one that was saved at the last minute such as this series.
The series stars Christian Slater, Bret Harrison, Alphonso McAuley, Odette Annable and Megan Mullally (among others) as members of a high-tech security firm, who takes extreme, and often questionable, measures to sell their protection services.
It is being reported that a FOX representative has stated the remaining episodes of the second season of ‘Breaking In’ will air “at a later time”, but in TV speak, quite frankly, that means they won’t.
How do fans feel about this latest (second) ‘cancellation’. Speak up!
