Fox Benches Breaking In For May Sweeps

Get More: News, Scheduling News

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.

  • Megan Mullally is much too good at being an obnoxious character. And that’s NOT what this show needed. Too bad Michael Rosenbaum wasn’t available; “Dutch” was a gold mine! All the wonderful quirkiness has taken a back seat to Mullally’s shrill shrew. It’s a shame.

  • The first season was awesome but then they added the new boss ( I forgot what her name is) and the British assistant and with Megan leaving it now sucks. And the whole point of the show is to have them break into places and they havnt done that once in the 2nd season. Bring
    Back the first season ways

  • Agree with previous comments – Megan’s Veronica should have been the competition. If you are going to remove Odette then use it as a change for a dysfunctional bromance between Dutch and Cameron. And am I the only one who missed Josh?

  • It should be indicative of the quality of the “new” Breaking In that I didn’t actually notice when it stopped airing.
    I was a HUGE fan of the first season and was angry when it was cancelled. It was a snappy, fast-paced show with good characters and smart, funny writing.
    When I heard they were bringing it back, I was thrilled til I watched the first episode. They did not bring back the same show. The new characters were annoying, particularly Megan Mulally, but what killed the show was the writing or lack thereof…very very disappointing.
