NBC BENCHES 'SINGING BEE,' 'HEROES: ORIGINS'; ABC EXTENDS 'MURDER CLUB'
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has pulled "The Singing Bee" from its November sweeps schedule, opting for expanded two-hour editions of "The Biggest Loser" in its place on Tuesday nights.
"Bee" posted a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating according to preliminary Nielsen data last night, marking a first-run series low. The newcomer opened to a stellar 5.0 rating in the key demographic on July 10.
The executive producers of "Bee" are Phil Gurin and Robert C. Horowitz.
Meanwhile, the Peacock has also given the hook to "Heroes: Origins," a previously announced six-episode spin-off of Tim Kring's popular drama featuring one-off tales about new characters in the show's universe. It's understood the project has been shelved indefinitely due to financial concerns as the network readies for the expected WGA strike. Kevin Smith, Eli Roth, Michael Dougherty and John August were among the names set to be involved with "Origins," which was still in the early stages of pre-production.

I don't know why they thought The Singing Be would be a big hit. They were dumb for picking it up only after one episode.
Good call on Heroes: Origins they need to focus on the original show. It's definitely going through a sophomore slump.
