ABC shortens 'Killer Women' series run, to be replaced by 'Mind Games'

By Kyle Johnson,

ABC has announced that the poorly received - both by critics and viewers - new show Killer Women will be ending sooner than previously planned and will be replaced by Mind Games.

The Tricia Helfer-led Killer Women has suffered from poor ratings with the premiere netting only a 0.9 in the 18-49 demographic, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The second episode lurched even further down to a 0.7 in the rating and ABC has decided not to waste time.

Kyle Killen's Mind Games will now premiere on Feb. 25, instead of on March 11, as the alphabet network tries to cut its losses with Killer Women. The new drama stars Christian Slater and Steve Zahn.

Deadline reports that ABC announced the premiere date of new drama series Black Box, which will start airing on April 24 when Scandal finishes its season. The show's schedule had to be altered due to star Kerry Washington's pregnancy.

Dancing With the Stars will return to TV on March 17 in the timeslot ahead of Mind Games.

ABC also announced that Pixar was working on a new animated special for the holidays called Toy Story That Time Forgot.
