Fox drops Posey sitcom "Jezebel James"

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Fox has pulled the low-rated Parkey Posey sitcom “The Return of Jezebel James” from its schedule after just three airings.

The show pulled in just 3.2 million viewers when it debuted March 14 with back-to-back episodes, the network’s worst performance in the 8 p.m. hour since fall’s “The Next Great American Band.” Last Friday’s episode, paired with a rerun of “‘Til Death,” met with similar apathy. “‘Til Death” has also been removed from the lineup, with both replaced by repeats of “Bones.”

“Jezebel James,” from “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, stars Posey as a frenzied career woman who persuades her younger sister (Lauren Ambrose) to become a surrogate mother for her.
