Consider it a royal disaster!
After just a few episodes, Fox has decided to pull both I Wanna Marry “Harry” and Riot from its schedule. Both shows premiered back in May, with I Wanna Marry “Harry” getting the timeslot right after the American Idol finale. The reality dating show and the odd improv show both fell flat in the ratings, and the network seems to be cutting their losses early on.
Beginning next week (June 17, to be exact), Fox will replace both Tuesday night shows with an encore block of their popular comedies, with Family Guy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and Mindy Project stepping to lend a hand.
I Wanna Marry “Harry” and Riot barely garnered a million viewers in their most recent airings, not even making a dent in the ratings.
If you’re still anxious to see who the Prince Harry lookalike — Matthew Hicks — chooses as his fake princess, we’ve got some good news. As of this Friday afternoon, June 13, the remaining episodes will be available to stream on Fox.com, Fox On Demand, FOX NOW, and Hulu. The network may decide to air the remaining episodes later on, but doesn’t have any plans yet.
