CBS Cancels “Angel From Hell” Sitcom

CBS has scrapped freshman series “Angel From Hell,” pulling the comedy from its Thursday 9:30pm slot and replacing it with “2 Broke Girls” from next week. A re-run of “The Big Bang Theory” will take its place this week.

Variety reports that there are no immediate plans to find ‘Angel’ an alternative slot on the schedule – effectively cancelling the show after five episodes having aired.

Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson starred in the series which has scored critical pans and pulled in soft figures by CBS standards – averaging a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and nine million viewers overall in Live+3 estimates.
