ABC carried its program-killing spree into the weekend, confirming Saturday the cancellation of the low-performing comedy "Family Tools." But, hey, at least the network is keeping "The Neighbors"?
Making its debut as a midseason replacement less than two weeks ago, “Family Tools” lacked the tools necessary to stay alive on the network -- it premiered to 5.7 million viewers and shed more than a million viewers in its second airing. Based on the British format, the comedy featured Kyle Bornheimer as a man who puts his dreams on hold to take over his family's business. Its late-in-the-game launch and low viewership made it prime meat on the network's chopping block.
