Christian Slater Couldn't Break In
FOX cancels his latest sitcom … again
"Breaking In" has been yanked from FOX's schedule, where it had been airing on Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. This marks the second time the struggling Christian Slater sitcom has met the ax. It had been revived after being canceled last May.
According to this Entertainment Weekly report, the last three scheduled episodes will be replaced by repeats of the show's lead-in, Zooey Deschanel's "New Girl." The most recent "Breaking In" drew 2.6 million viewers and a 1.3 rating, meaning that it lost 43 percent of "New Girl's" audience. (Ouch.)
This completes a trifecta of failed shows for Slater, who also couldn't break in with 2008's "My Own Worst Enemy" or 2010's aptly titled "The Forgotten."
FOX claims its remaining "Breaking In" episodes "will air at a later date."
We're betting a later time, too -- as in 1 or 2 a.m.
why is it they always kill the good shows and leave some of the stupidest shows on christian slater is a great actor its not his fault that there canceling it again they need to put it on a better day and a little ealier give it a chance then
"Fox has to give shows half a chance."
I think putting a show on the air TWICE, and having to cancel it twice, is actually giving it more than half a chance. The vast majority of the audience has spoken, and sooner or later, the network has to listen.
I think this guy stinks and is one of the least cared about TV actors.
His shows when they get a chance all bomb.
Its because of his lack of poersonality or charm or anything-Hes just plain DULL.
He is basically a commercial voice spokesperson now.
My husband and I love Breaking In! We think it's hysterical. I also really liked the Forgotten. I was bummed when they cancelled that! Fox has to give shows half a chance. We loved Human Target too and they cancelled that!
