CBS pulls 'The Ex-List'

97448_d1948b CBS has yanked struggling drama "The Ex-List" from its lineup this Friday. 

The freshman dramedy series will be replaced with a repeat of procedural "NCIS," which has been performing solidly for the network this fall.

The fourth and final episode of "Ex-List" dropped 20% to a season low 1.6 rating among adults 18-49. Though that tied Fox for second place in the 9 p.m. hour, the show has created a sinkhole in CBS' otherwise ratings-winning Friday-night crime-drama block.

"Ex-List" joins Fox's comedy "Do Not Disturb" and ABC's game show "Opportunity Knocks," all new titles yanked from the fall lineup and now presumed canceled.

Also: CBS has just ordered two more scripts for "Worst Week," bringing its total to four, matching the script order for "Gary Unmarried."

Updated: Fall TV survival status report.
