LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - It's been a short
"Drive" for Fox's midseason drama, which has been pulled off
the schedule after two weeks on the air.
For the time being, the serialized drama chronicling an
underground cross-country race will be replaced by "House"
repeats in the Monday 8 p.m. slot.
"Drive" received a strong promotional push on Fox's
juggernaut "American Idol" and was launched with a two-night
premiere, a strategy regularly used for the network's hit
serialized drama "24."
But "Drive" never clicked with viewers, and its two
low-rated airings on Monday seemed to hurt its leadout, "24,"
which posted its lowest adults 18-49 rating for an original
episode in more than three years.
It is not clear when and on what platform the remaining
nine episodes of "Drive" will air. Streaming the episodes on
Fox.com or offering them as downloads through iTunes are among
the possibilities under consideration.
