Say goodbye to the midseason mystery!
Revealed via Twitter by its series creator, The CW has pulled struggling midseason thriller Cult from its schedule line-up after seven low-rated episodes. Reruns of The Carrie Diaries and Oh-Sit! will now fill the vacated Friday at 9 p.m. timeslot.
Originally slated on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. following Hart of Dixie, Cult failed to find an audience and premiered to low ratings (even for The CW standards). The network moved the show to Fridays after two episodes in the hopes that a better pairing with Nikita would improve its ratings. Unfortunately, Cult still averaged between a 0.2 to 0.3 in the demo.
Cult followed the adventures of investigative journalist Jeff (Matt Davis) and production assistant Skye (Jessica Lucas) uncovering the secrets of Cult's obsessed fans while trying to locate Jeff's missing younger brother. Also showcased is the show-within-a-show Cult that stars Roger (Robert Knepper) as the actor portraying the charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm and Marni (Alona Tal), the actress portraying determined cop Kelly Collins.
The CW has yet to confirm whether they will air the six remaining episodes of Cult's one and only season.
