Breaking In Canceled by Fox

Just moments after we posted the news that Human Target had been canceled by Fox, we caught win from Deadline that the new freshman comedy series Breaking In was also canceled by the network.

Poor Christian Slater. The guy just can’t catch a break.

Breaking In premiered to solid ratings for Fox. The series, which focuses on a group of thieves who work at a security agency, had nearly 10 million viewers for its premiere episode, and had American Idol as a lead-in. The ratings for Breaking In did drop-off after the premiere, and started averaging between 7 and 8 million viewers each week.

According to Deadline, the cancellation of Breaking In is a strange move, because the show actually performs better than other Fox comedies such as Traffic Light (and the already-canceled Running Wilde). Fox’s Upfront presentation isn’t until early next week, but it looks like the network is already putting its schedule out there. We might get a full picture of their Fall schedule before the end of this week. Read more about their new pilot pick-ups here.

I’m not yet sure how many un-aired episodes of Breaking In exist and whether they will air or be pulled from the schedule.

Updated: In an unexpected twist of fate, it looks like Fox has decided to revive this series. For more information, click here.
