Fox’s “Do Not Disturb” is the first new series of the Fall to get the axe.
The much-panned comedy averaged four million viewers over the three episodes that had just aired and was so poorly reviewed that its production team wrote a letter of apology to critics.
“Do Not Disturb” starred Jerry O’Connell Neal, as the egotistical general manager of a hip New York hotel, and Niecy Nash as Rhonda, the head of human resources, and centered on the upstairs-downstairs clashes between them.
Of the new shows to have premiered so far, both “Fringe” and “The Mentalist” have done well though “Knight Rider” and “Gary Unmarried” flopped. The new “90210” premiered strong but quickly fizzled though the network has given it a full-season order.
