Running Wilde, Whatever With Alexis & Jennifer Pulled; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of November 15, 2010)

Fox has pulled the struggling single camera comedy Running Wilde off of its schedule immediately. The series airs Tuesdays at 9:30pm and will be replaced by repeats of Raising Hope on Tuesday, Nov. 16 and Tuesday, Nov. 23. As of now, Running Wilde is slated to return Nov. 30, but by then November sweeps will be over. Sweeps ends Nov. 24. Running Wilde stars Will Arnett and Keri Russell. The series has dropped each week in the ratings, with its last two airings under 3 million viewers. Six episodes have aired thus far and it is not likely to return after its 13 episodes are up.

Meanwhile, The Hallmark Channel has pulled Whatever with Alexis & Jennifer from its schedule. The talk show was airing weekdays at 12 noon ET, but starting Monday (Nov. 15), it is off the schedule completely. Hallmark will replace the talk show with back-to-back episodes of From Martha's Kitchen, which returns to the schedule. Ratings were always low for the talk show (and really the entire Martha block from 10am-3pm). Everything else remains the same as it is in the Martha block with The Martha Stewart Show at 10am, Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn at 11a & 11:30a, and encores of The Martha Stewart Show at 1p & 2p.
And don't forget today is the last day of the Hallmark sitcoms/TV series until January because of Christmas movies. Only Little House on the Prairie will air (weekdays at 3pm) until January.

It's Friday, so it is time for "Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows" for the coming week. This is where we list what sitcom stars are appearing on talk shows for the coming week, the stars are both current and past sitcom stars (but we won't cover movie stars like Tom Hanks or John Travolta, since they won't be talking about their past sitcoms likely), so this is for all sitcom fans of all eras!
