The series, which has drawn low ratings since its Sept. 28 premiere, has been pulled from the Friday lineup after only two airings. A network spokesman confirmed that the show, which was created by former Los Angeles Times reporter Dana Calvo, had been yanked, but gave no further details on when or if it would return to the schedule.

Kevin Sheehan had a heck of a time on some recent cruises. First, he was roundly ridiculed by a tough-talking co-worker for his substandard deck work. Then he flopped in an attempt to lead a thousand passengers in a line dance. Wait. I thought cruises were supposed to be fun. They might be for viewers who tune in to watch Sheehan, 57, learn the ropes on the CBS reality TV show "Undercover Boss" at 9 p.m. PST Sunday. "Every single task I did was overwhelmingly hard 80% of the time," the chief executive of Norwegian Cruise Line said in a phone interview.

There were 456 episodes of "Law & Order," 298 episodes (so far) of "Law & Order: SVU," 195 episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and a total of 35 episodes of the franchises' unsuccessful spinoffs. With a new case in every episode, it's become a resume staple for nearly every working actor in New York. And that includes celebrities. Over the franchise's 22 years on the air, a number of big-name stars have appeared for one-off spots on the show. And we're not just talking the usual stunt casting, like Khloe Kardashian or Serena Williams.

Britain's largest independent television production company, All3Media, will consolidate its Southern California studios in Westchester. The company behind such shows as "Undercover Boss" and "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" has agreed to rent two floors in a Howard Hughes Center office building near the 405 Freeway and Sepulveda Boulevard, real estate broker Jacob Bobek of Cushman & Wakefield said. The lease for 51,000 square feet of space is valued at $16 million, Bobek said. All3Media's five Los Angeles-area studios are now in separate locations in Culver City and on the Westside, and the consolidation will reduce their total rented space about 20%. More than half of All3Media's revenue comes from international operations, and the U.S. is its fastest-growing market, according to British industry website Broadcast.
