BIG SHOTS Goes Down for the Count

ABC is putting the decidedly unfunny comedy Big Shots on hiatus for the rest of 2007, a move that bodes particularly poorly for the underperforming show. The series debuted to negative reviews and lackluster ratings this fall in the coveted Thursday 10 p.m. time slot behind Grey’s Anatomy. Even the addition of Veronica Mars mastermind Rob Thomas to the writing staff in August couldn’t seem to save this troubled show.

Thomas has been playing an unsuccessful game of musical chairs this season after the CW pulled the plug on his attempts to resurrect Veronica Mars for an FBI-based season four. Back in July he was on board to run ABC’s Miss/Guided, but jumped ship after a few weeks, citing “creative differences.”

Repeats of Private Practice will replace Big Shots for the rest of the year (in addition to Practice‘s regular Wednesday airings). Sadly, given the shortage of scripted programming the network is facing, we still may not have seen the last of Big Shots.
