THR.com is reporting that production on the MRC produced Valentine and Easy Money, telecast on CW's Sunday night, has been shut down:
The independent producer, which in May inked a time buy-type deal with the CW to program the network's Sunday night, has put the two scripted series for the block, "Easy Money" and "Valentine, Inc.," on 4- to 6-week hiatus....
A rep for MRC said the hiatuses were planned to give writers time to catch up on scripts, and crews and casts were informed of the dates on Friday.
Read the rest here.
Sure, that's the ticket, hiatus and then return to let the writers catch up on scripts, when until now MRC representatives were all sunshine and roses about their show's woeful Sunday ratings. And why was the third MRC produced Sunday show, In Harm's Way, spared? It did just as badly. We'll see if we can find out.
And while it was just about as close to a TV prediction lay up as we could possibly get, we had Valentine and Easy Money pegged as the most likely shows to be cancelled in our Renew or Cancel Index.
The next installment of the Renew or Cancel Index arrives Tuesday night. What show will be next marked for cancellation?
