Fox revokes Drive license

  • 270comments

It's been a short Drive for Fox's midseason drama, which has been pulled off the schedule after two weeks on the air.

For the time being, the serialized drama chronicling an underground cross-country race will be replaced by House repeats in the Monday 8 p.m. slot.

Drive received a strong promotional push on Fox's juggernaut American Idol and was launched with a two-night premiere, a strategy regularly used for the network's hit serialized drama 24.

But Drive never clicked with viewers, and its two low-rated airings on Monday seemed to hurt its leadout, 24, which posted its lowest adults 18-49 rating for an original episode in more than three years.

It is not clear when and on what platform the remaining nine episodes of Drive will air. Streaming the episodes on Fox.com or offering them as downloads through iTunes are among the possibilities under consideration.
