Sammy Sacked After Two Episodes
Like its doomed toon brother CLERKS, SAMMY has been sacked by NBC after only airing two episodes. The network pulled the plug on the long-shelved comedian David Spade series after it was down 1.1 million views from its lackluster debut of 4.1 million. The beleaguered toon scored a dismal 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 in its Tuesday 8:30 pm time slot. The cancellation isnt much of a surprise, especially when insiders have said that the series ranked as one of the networks lowest-scoring shows in front of test audiences. The semi-autobiographical premise surrounds Sammy, a dead-beat dad, who returns into his now-famous sons life a hard sell. The series will be replaced next week by a rerun of the special "Saturday Night Live: Best of Game Show Parodies."
