CBS: Angel From Hell cancelled replaced by Two Broke Girls

CBS have pulled the plug on the lack-lustre Jane Lynch starring sitcom Angel From Hell. The change is effective immediately with remaining episodes of season five of Two Broke Girls taking up the time-slot.

As per Deadline.. It aired five episodes of its 13-episode order. Starting next week, the single-camera comedy will be replaced by multi-camera veteran 2 Broke Girls, which will return to Thursdays where it aired last season. (A Big Bang Theory repeat will fill Angel From Hell’s Thursday 9:30 PM slot this week.)

CBS opened a temporary comedy block in the Wednesday 8-9 PM hour in January to bridge the two installments of Survivor.

The block, consisting of 2 Broke Girls and departing Mike & Molly, will wrap its run this week as Survivor comes back next Wednesday. 2 Broke Girls will make its Thursday season debut the following night, Feb. 18.Angel From Hell, starring Lynch as a young woman’s (Maggie Lawson) caustic guarding angel, was originally slated to debut as part of CBS’ post-Thursday Night Football lineup in November but its launch was pushed to January.

The series had only been drawing modest ratings and little in the way of critical plaudits.
