CBS shutters reality dating show “3”


CBS has pulled the reality dating show “3” after just two episodes. It boasted the network’s lowest rating ever for a new series debut, after two episodes. “3”  debuted Thursday to a 0.8 rating/2 share in 18-49 and 2.4 million total viewers. By Sunday, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler was already referring to it in the past tense at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, reported The Wrap.

“It was a show we tried, we were excited about, [that] didn’t quite get traction,” she said.

Soon after Tassler made those comments, “3” moved to what was to be its normal timeslot, 9 p.m., but it didn’t help.

Drama reruns will run in place of “3” on Sunday nights until “The Good Wife” returns in the fall.
