Actress Alyson Hannigan has quit Jennifer Love Hewitt's new TV series before its debut because she hates her character.

The former BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER star was slated to play a starring role - as Hewitt's best friend and assistant - in sports sitcom IN THE GAME, but will now be replaced by former ROSEANNE star Sara Gilbert.

Hannigan says, "My character was pointless and it certainly wasn't challenging."
