"Anchorwoman" bombs (updated)

Anchorwoman earned a paltry 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 for Fox. It's not a good sign when your reality show about a bimbo newscaster achieves the same ratings as actual newscasts on WBBM-Channel 2.

And you thought the Baltimore Orioles had a bad night...

UPDATE: Anchorwoman was canceled today, marking the first time Fox has yanked a show after one episode since The Rich List last year. The show will be burned off at

The One and Out Club:

You're in the Picture (CBS, 1961)

Turn-On (ABC, 1969)

Co-Ed Fever (CBS, 1978)

South of Sunset (CBS, 1993)

Public Morals (CBS, 1996)

Lawless (Fox, 1997)

Who's Your Daddy? (Fox, 2005)

Emily Reason's Why Not (ABC, 2006)

The Rich List (Fox, 2006)

Thought: She Gone! So what new show this fall may last one episode? Taking bets now on Cavemen and Kid Nation...

Trivia: You're in the Picture's lone air date - January 20, 1961 - was also the same day John F. Kennedy was inaugurated as the country's 35th president.
