Fox cancels 'Mob Doctor'

The low-rated drama gets euthanized

Fox cancels ‘Mob Doctor’


 It was only a matter of time. The Fox drama “Mob Doctor” has been on life support almost since its debut in September. Today Fox pulled the plug on the series which was averaging less than 4.5 million viewers.
That’s the smallest viewership for any network drama except for (yikes!) “Fringe”.
“Mob Doctor” which starred Jordana Spiro and William Forsythe, was unable to fill the big surgical slippers left by "House" on Monday nights. After next week’s episode, the show will take its already scheduled Christmas break. And then it will burn off its four remaining episodes at decidedly unpropitious times around the New Year.
The finale in particular seems unlikely to gain a large audience. It will air January 7 – against college football’s BCSChampionship game.
