FOX Pulls ‘I Hate My Teenage Daughter’ After Ratings Hit New Low

What’s bad for FOX comedies is good for ‘American Idol.’ After hitting a series low, the network has pulled the Jamie Pressly comedy, ‘I Hate My Teenage Daughter’ from its lineup and replaced it with ‘Raising Hope’ reruns, followed by an additional hour of ‘American Idol’ in April.

The half-hour comedy about two single mothers commiserating over their obnoxious teenage spawn has been plunging in the ratings since its November premiere.  The network already planned to remove the series from its schedule in April but apparently last night’s season low was too much for FOX to take. The sitcom is now off the schedule until the summer, when the network will run the remaining episodes.

But ‘Teenage Daughter’ wasn’t the only show struggling in last night’s dismal showing for the network. ‘Raising Hope,’ ‘The New Girl’ and ‘Breaking In’ all fell to season lows as part of the network’s Tuesday night comedy block. A 1.7 demo rating is so not funny as FOX prepares for its May 14th Upfront presentation.

Luckily, the network has the returning ‘Glee’ and an extra hour of ‘American Idol’ up its sleeve, proving that in the end, bad singing is still better than a bad sitcom.
