ABC Cancels Cross-Dressing Comedy 'Work It' After Just Two Episodes: [ send to a friend ]
ABC has fired 'Work It' from its schedule after just two episodes.
The network has announced that it is pulling the cross-dressing comedy, which starred Amaury Nolasco and Benjamin Koldyke as two men who dress as women to land a job, due to poor ratings.
Although it hasn't been officially cancelled by the alphabet, the project is believed to be dead after it dropped twenty percent for its second episode from already low premiere numbers on January 3.
GLAAD, who had complained that the show mocked the transgender community, says it's pleased with the outcome.
"ABC should know how offensive this show is, and that it even has the potential to jeopardize the safety of many transgender Americans in the process," the group had said in a full page ad last week.
