The clock has run out on “Zero Hour.” According to a report from TV Line, ABC has canceled the series. The conspiracy thriller never really got off the ground, with three low-rated episodes.
The show premiered February 14, Valentine’s Day, to a weak 6.3 million viewers, with a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, and didn’t get any better moving forward. The latest episode, airing Thursday night, dropped down to 5 million viewers and an 18-49 rating of 1, leading ABC to cut their losses.
“Zero Hour” was Anthony Edwards’ first full-time TV role since he left the critically-acclaimed “E.R.” in 2002. ABC has yet to officially confirm the cancellation, or announce what will take over its time slot.
