A-ha, see, I knew not to get hooked on Ben and Kate. Odds are, if I fall in love with a new show it will be yanked off the schedule. That’s why I usually wait a few weeks/months to see if a new series will be sticking around before checking it out.
 
Fox just announced revisions to its Tuesday night comedy block, pulling the struggling-to-find-an-audience Ben and Kate out of the lineup. In its place viewers will be getting a double dose of Raising Hope (a series I am addicted to, by the way) until Hell’s Kitchen debuts in March.
