“Hank” yanked by ABC


To the surprise of no one, ABC has canceled “Hank,” which starred Kelsey Grammer as an unemployed executive forced to survive off the good graces of blue collar relatives. Only five of the 10 episodes produced actually aired. It’s unclear what will happen to the remaining five.

Ratings were poor from the beginning for Hank, so the exit from the ABC schedule had been expected. Hank was produced by Warner Bros. Television.
