Fox shelves Playing It Straight
March 31 2004 1:00 AM ET
Variety reports that, as part of a major overhaul of the Fox network's Thursday and Friday lineups, the reality show Playing It Straight will be going on temporary hiatus. The dating show, about a straight woman who must pick a straight suitor out of a group of gay and straight men, has been pulled from the schedule, although Fox does plan on airing the remaining episodes this summer so viewers can find out how the game ends.
In another move, the critically acclaimed series Wonderfalls, from out creators Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle) and Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me), is being moved to Thursday nights at 9 p.m., effective April 1.
