FOX pulls Playing it Straight.

FOX pulls Playing it Straight.
We’re going to have to wait until this summer to find out who’s gay and who’s straight, as FOX has pulled Playing it Straight from its schedule. About 3.9 million people watched it each of the three weeks it aired, according to Variety. It will return sometime this summer, but in the meantime, “Totally Outrageous Behavior” and “World’s Craziest Videos” will air Fridays at 8. FOX is also switching Forever Eden and the brilliant Wonderfalls, which moves from Friday to Thursdays. Wonderfalls will air opposite The Apprentice and CSI, where it’s sure to be watched by the three people who aren’t watching NBC or CBS at that hour.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
