Do Not Disturb Becomes First Fall Cancellation

Do Not Disturb

Well, at least this will give Jerry O’Connell time to focus on becoming a new father.

After only three episodes. FOX’s Do Not Disturb has become the first casualty of the fall season. The show - which was only watched by only 3.5 million this Wednesday - has already been pulled off the schedule. As of October 1, the network will air a one hour block of ‘Til Death (1 original, 1 repeat) for the time being.

Seriously - did FOX honestly think a freshman program could survive against Criminal Minds, Private Practice and Project Runway?
