Judge Jeanine Pirro got some difficult news this week when her new reality television show “We The Jury,” which premiered earlier this month, was apparently canceled.
The Independent Journal Review reported that when viewers tried to tune in to the third episode of the show on Friday night, they instead found a rerun of “Lethal Weapon.”
The controversial courtroom reality television show premiered on April 7, and episode one included audience members voting via text message on whether or not a man was guilty of killing missing Maryland woman Robyn Gardner.
Only 1.5 million viewers tuned in to watch the premiere episode, and that number dropped to 1.2 the following week. Fox had been advertising episode three of “You The Jury,” which featured the story of Memories, a pizzeria in Indiana that refused to cater for a same sex wedding.
When reached for comment, Alexandra Gillespie, director of communications at Fox, said the television series has been “replaced” in the schedule.
“’You the Jury’ has been replaced with encores of ‘Lethal Weapon,’” she said.
