When It Airs: Fall; Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. on ABC

ABC has pulled the plug on freshman comedy Man Up sooner than expected.

The sitcom created by and starring Christopher Moynihan has been removed from the schedule with repeats of the Tim Allen comedy Last Man Standing taking over its Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. slot through year's end.

Production on the ABC Studios series' 10 episode has already wrapped, with remaining episodes possibly being burned off in the summer.

Since premiering Oct. 18 to 7.7 million viewers and a 2.4 in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, the comedy co-starring Dan Fogler has tumbled in the ratings, with Tuesday's installment tying a series low with a 1.6 rating in the demo and 4.8 million viewers.

ABC effectively ended the rookie comedy's run last month when it scheduled freshman cross-dressing comedy Work It in Man Up's time slot, effective Jan. 3.
