Fox Benches Breaking In For May Sweeps

Fox is cutting Breaking In‘s second season short.

The network announced late Wednesday that it was pulling the struggling Christian Slater comedy from its Tuesday night schedule for the remainder of the season. 

On April 24, May 1 and May 8, Breaking In‘s post New Girl 9:30/8:30c timeslot will be filled by repeats of, you guessed it, New Girl. A Fox rep says the remaining episodes of Breaking In‘s second season will air “at a later date.”

The series — which was brought back to life at the last minute over the summer — drew less than 3 million viewers in its most recent telecast on April 3.
