CBS Takes 'Ex List' Off Schedule

CBS has pulled The Ex List off its schedule, which is good news for my TV Death Pool:

Eye has yanked the drama off the sked, effective this Friday. A repeat of NCIS will air in its place.

Decision comes after The Ex List averaged 5.3 million viewers and a 1.5 rating/5 share in its final airing, last Friday. The Ex List repped CBS' weak link on Friday nights, where Ghost Whisperer and Numbers both won their hours.

The Ex List had an idea that was better in concept than application. A single woman (Elizabeth Reaser) is told by a psychic that she has one year to find her true love or end up alone, and the guy's somebody she already dated.

Reaser's an appealing actress as the unlucky-in-love woman, but every week she chased after -- and usually bedded -- some old boyfriend who had become a stranger to her. So there was a new male guest star every week, just like on Love Boat, but he wasn't just climbing aboard a boat.
