The Ausiello Files Reports

Just call it the ex-Ex List.

CBS is pulling the struggling freshman drama off its schedule, effective immediately. An Eye insider confirms that the show’s Friday 9 p.m. time slot will be filled this week with an NCIS rerun.

Since debuting last month, Ex List has been squandering nearly half of the audience of its lead-in, Ghost Whisperer. Last Friday’s installment hit a series low 5.1 million viewers (compared with 9.9 for GW).

Ciao, Bella: CBS’ Fridays Are Now Ex List-less

It would seem that Bella will never reunite with her one true love. CBS has pulled The Ex List from its Friday line-up effective immediately. To date, 11 episodes (including the pilot) had been filmed, so seven remain unaired.

Despite debuting to decent critical notices, The Ex List has struggled in its berth between heavy hitters Ghost Whisperer and Numbers – both of which hit season highs this past week, while the Elisabeth Reaser-starrer sank to a low.

The Ex List premiered to 7.2 million viewers, which at the time was an “OK” 77 percent retention of the Ghost Whisperer audience. This past Friday, however, the freshman drama lost its grip on a full 43 percent of its lead-in, and was down 22 percent from its so-so debut.
