ABC Cancels Zero Hour Due to Zero Ratings

  • 214comments

God couldn't save it, "The 12" couldn't save it, only ABC could've save it, but ABC killed it. Zero Hour, one of television's newest weekly hours of absurdity, has been canceled by ABC after three episodes, according to TV Line. If you're surprised by this decision, then I guess you never watched Zero Hour.

The conspiracy thriller grabbed a 1.4 18-49 rating in its premiere on Valentine's Day, and last night's episode pulled in a 1.0 rating. That's not good. ABC has not confirmed the news, and the network currently has a giant blank space on its schedule for next week. 

The show starred Anthony Edwards as the editor of a skeptic's magazine who might have been a reincarnated Nazi apostle who had to chase down clocks all over the globe before immortal demon babies and assassins hunted him down. Or something like that.
