Fox’s The Mob Doctor premiered to just a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating last night. It’s not long for this world. It may not survive until the cancellation bear makes his first post of the season on October 2.
“Luckily” for Fox, they’ve got Touch currently slotted to premiere on Friday (October 26), and presumably it has plenty of episodes already “in the can” for a Fall start, so taking The Mob Doctor off Monday and putting Touch in is the easy move.
But when will that happen?
I’ll let the focused schedule jockeys provide handicapping tips in the comments, because Fox’s Fall schedule has so many quirks with the baseball playoffs and the election, I can’t keep up with it.
Whether The Mob Doctor gets moved to a Friday burn off, or off the schedule entirely is another topic you may wish to cover in your comments.
Update: While there was no presidential election in 2010, after Lone Star “Lonestar’d” its premiere ratings, the series premiere of Lie To Me replaced it on October 4, after two episodes.
Update (2): Voters thought that Lone Star would stick around more than 2 weeks, and we know how that turned out.
What’s your guess?
