Man Down for ABC’s “Man Up!”

ABC has decided to yank the freshman series Man Up! off the schedule, effective immediately, after weeks of lagging ratings.

Man Up! was never a strong performer on Tuesday nights, despite having a very decent lead-in with ABC’s new sitcom Last Man Standing. This Tuesdays airing received a pretty good 8.8 million viewers, but in the all important 18-49 demographic, it can’t compete with the competition. Its season A18-49 average is a 1.6, shedding 40% of the audience from Last Man Standing.

ABC stresses the fact that Man Up! isn’t cancelled, even though it wasnt on the mid-season schedule announced a couple of weeks ago, but executives say un-aired episodes may be used to fill holes in the schedule in the future. Dont count on that though…
