One month ago, I set the over-under on episodes of Kelsey Grammer’s “Hank” that would air at 5.5. Collect your winnings if you took the under, because ABC has canned it after five episodes (and one Great Pumpkin preemption).
The show is filming episode 10 and will stop production after wrapping that episode. ABC… has no immediate plans to run the remaining five segments. [The Live Feed]
In slightly higher quality cancellation, Fox has axed Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse,” which had low ratings but a small and nerdy fan base. Unlike “Hank,” Fox will air the second season’s remaining episodes. Whedon and the nerdy fan base are sad. Whedon wrote:

Gosh, when he puts it that way, I don’t even feel bad for him. I kind of wish I were rich and fired.
