ABC pulls The Mole 2 off the schedule; it will return midseason.
The Mole 2 has been pulled off of ABC’s lineup for now, but the Anderson Cooper-hosted show will return, and production is continuing on the unfinished episodes.

America’s Funniest Home Videos will now air in its old time slot at 8 on Fridays.
