CBS sheds 3 Lbs.

Today, CBS has fewer brains--the network has put 3 Lbs. on indefinite hiatus.

The medical drama, a midseason replacement show, starred Stanley Tucci as an edgy New York neurosurgeon. Lbs. drew an average 8 million weekly viewers, consistently placing third in its Tuesday 10 p.m. time slot.

The net will replace the show next week with The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. After that it will cycle in reruns until further notice.

CBS has been moving quickly this season when it comes to axing underperforming series. Ray Liotta's crime drama Smith was also given the boot after three low-rated showings. Smith is finishing its run on CBS's broadband site, Innertube.
