Mole 2 Cancelled???

I tuned in tonight to catch episode 4 of The Mole 2: The Next Betrayal only to find it wasn't on. After some snooping in the abc.com message board I found that abc has cancelled it. I guess they're thinking of maybe bringing it back sometime later in the season, but it doesn't look good the us Mole fans.

Too bad, I really enjoyed the first season and was just starting to get into this season. I guess a Friday night timeslot took another innocent show down.

Yep. It was discussed in previous Mole threads on this forum.

Sucks, they should not have put it on Friday nights.

Wow... My theory was that they wouldn't CANCEL a reality show. That they woudl let the episodes run course and then mot have another season... This was unexpected. I watched every ep last year, but it jsut wasn't on my priority list this year.

Maybe they'll bring it back during sweeps or midseason-crap-replacement.

Supposedly bringing it back early next year...

After three poor-performing episodes, the network is yanking The Mole II: The Next Betrayal from its Friday lineup--the first time a serialized reality show has been pulled before its completion.

Viewers still hoping to find out who the Mole is may now have to wait until next January or March, when ABC is hoping to relaunch the series. (Note to the winner: Are you really good at keeping secrets?) For now, ABC is replacing The Mole with less mentally challenging reality show America's Funniest Home Videos, at 8 p.m.

But unlike frowning fall castoffs like Joan Cusack and Daniel Stern, Stone Stanley Productions insists it's actually happy about the pulled Mole. "We look at this as good news," Scott Stone tells Variety. "ABC loves the show and they want to give it a good relaunch."

Ratings were abysmal. It placed below 70th watched shows. Love Cruise is doing awful too. Never matched the Mole and the Love Cruise sucked IMO. Survivor is boring. Makes me miss BB2 even more.
