Fox revokes 'Drive' license


It's been a short "Drive" for Fox's midseason drama, which has been pulled off the schedule after two weeks on the air.

For the time being, "Drive" will be replaced by "House" repeats in the Monday 8 p.m. slot.

"Drive," from 20th Century Fox TV, is a serialized drama chronicling an underground cross-country race.

The series starring Nathan Fillion received a strong promotional push on Fox's juggernaut "American Idol" and was launched with a two-night premiere, a strategy regularly used for the network's hit serialized drama "24."

But "Drive" didn't click with viewers from the start, and in its two low-rated airings on Monday seem to have hurt its leadout, veteran "24," which this week posted its lowest adults 18-49 rating for an original episode in more than three years.

It is not clear when and on what platform the remaining nine episodes of "Drive" will air. Streaming the episodes on or offering them as downloads through iTunes are among the possibilities under consideration.
