Viva Laughlin, the hybrid musical/drama that CBS launched on Thursday, Oct. 18, and thenmoved into what was expected to be its regular slot three days later onSunday, has now been yanked from the network's schedule altogether. Itthereby became the first scripted show of the new season airing on any ofthe Big 4 networks to be shot down. (Analysts have observed that thenetworks have been loath to pull even their worst performing new shows,figuring that even they are likely to perform better than reruns should astrike by the Writers Guild of America occur.) CBS said that it plans toreturn The Amazing Race to its schedule on Sundays, during the timeperiod being vacated by Laughlin.
