ABC Cancels Wicked City
By Allison Moore
Washington, D.C. (November 14, 2015) -- ABC has canceled the rookie drama Wicked City after just three episodes, making it the first 2015-2016 Fall series to be axed, writes Deadline.com.
The site reports that repeats of the reality series, Shark Tank, will air in Wicked City's Tuesday, 10 p.m. time slot starting November 17.
Wicked City, which starred Jeremy Sisto and Erika Christensen, followed two Los Angeles detectives on the trail of two romantically-linked serial killers. Based loosely (very loosely) on real-life crimes in the City of Angels, Wicked City was slashed to pieces by TV critics. RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gave the show a score of just 16 out of a possible 100.

Wicked Game also failed with viewers, garnering the lowest rating for a new series this fall on the four major broadcast networks.
Several new shows have seen their episode orders reduced this fall due to low ratings, but Wicked City is the first to get a visit from the network's Grim Reaper.
