CBS comedy Living Biblically has been pulled from the network’s schedule effective immediately. The series, which debuted earlier this spring, will be replaced this coming Monday by a repeat of The Big Bang Theory.
This is the second series to be pulled from the schedule in as many days, as NBC swapped underperforming action drama Taken for a Dateline repeat. It’s as yet unclear where the remaining episodes of Living Biblically will air, but if CBS precedent with the likes of Angel from Hell and The McCarthys is any indication, the series will wrap its run on Saturdays this summer.
Based on The Year of Living Biblically by A. J. Jacobs and developed for television by Patrick Walsh (2 Broke Girls), Living Biblically followed film critic Chip Curry (Jay R. Ferguson) as he decides to improve his life by living according to the Bible after his best friend passes.
In addition to Ferguson, Living Biblically stars Ian Gomez (Cougar Town), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs), Tony Rock (Think Like a Man), and Camryn Manheim (Ghost Whisperer).
