The hourlong comedy about a woman searching for true love among her ex-boyfriends has been pulled from the network lineup, CBS said Monday. Its Friday time slot will be filled this week by a rerun of "NCIS."
There was no comment from the network on whether the freshman show might return. It was a weak link for CBS, which has gotten off to a strong start with returning shows including "NCIS" and some newcomers, most notably "The Mentalist."
"The Ex List" had aired four times. Last week's show dropped about 1 million viewers from the previous week, bringing the total audience to less than 5.5 million.
Based on the Israeli TV series "Mythological X," "The Ex List" stars Elizabeth Reaser as a 30-something woman who's told by a psychic that she must wed within a year or never — and her dream man is among the guys she's already dated. That leads her to give each another chance.
Reaser, who played a disfigured patient last season on "Grey's Anatomy," portrays Esme in the upcoming film "Twilight," based on the first installment in Stephenie Meyer's best-selling series.
Diane Ruggiero, the executive producer originally in charge of "The Ex List," left the series last month after creative disagreements with CBS.
