After only four episodes, ABC cancels Drew Barrymore produced remake of Charlie‘s Angels starring Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzeh. Even though it’s not being filmed anymore, any episode of Charlie’s Angels that was already filmed will still air, Thursday nights at 8 p.m., until ABC decides on what it want to replace Charlie’s Angels with. Sources from USA Today say it’s believed to have at least seven shows to be ready for airing.
Charlie’s Angels premiere on September 22, 2011 brought in around 8.7 million viewers, but since that episode, the ratings have dropped off. If you have been hiding under a rock and don’t know what Charlie’s Angels is, it’s a show about three young women private detectives in Miami. It was one of the first shows to have women in a more traditionally known role for men.
Charlie’s Angels will join other shows that have been cancelled on different networks such as; Free Agents on NBC, The Playboy Club on NBC, and as well as How to be a Gentleman on CBS.
ABC was not happy with the low ratings Charlie’s Angels were bringing in against Fox’s Thursday lineup of The X-Factor and NBC’s comedy lineup.
The original 1970’s Charlie’s Angels aired for six seasons and starred Farrah Fawcett.
