NBC has canceled the struggling comedy after four episodes, Deadline reports.
“Free Agents,” which stars Hank Azaria and Kathryn Hahn as coworkers diving into an ill-advised relationship, averaged a disappointing 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and just 3.3 million viewers in its latest airing last night.
There’s no word on what will replace the show in its time slot Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET, but “Whitney” is reportedly a contender to move into that spot once “30 Rock” returns in early 2012.
Aware that his show was in jeopardy, Azaria attempted to mount a Twitter campaign to save the show, to no avail.
On Thursday, Azaria posted a message of thanks, despite the cancellation notice: “Thanks to NBC for giving us a shot, thanks to all who watched ‘Free Agents,’ and thanks to all who worked on the show- we had so much fun!!”
Maybe now that Azaria isn’t a “Free Agent” anymore, he can re-think his perspective on the whole salary hold-out situation that’s threatening his other show, “The Simpsons.”
