CBS Yanks The Job After Two Episodes

CBS has canceled The Job! Well technically it's been "pulled from the schedule," but technically Khloe Kardashian is a "celebrity" and we all know the truth about that, right? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new reality show The Job has been removed from its Friday 8pm slot.

The reality competition, hosted by Lisa Ling, saw competitors vying for their dream jobs at their dream companies. It premiered February 8 to 4.1 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among 18-49-year olds, slightly more than dead air would typically get on CBS. Its follow-up episode fell further, to 3.4 million viewers and a 0.7 rating, or roughly one eighth of a Big Bang Theory episode.

CBS has not made a decision on whether to air the final six episodes of The Job. Starting this week, Undercover Boss will take over the Friday 8pm slot on CBS.

I doubt CBS would waste any more airtime on TV with this show but they could burn it off on the Internet.
