Fox has impounded "Drive," steering the show off the network highway after four episodes.
Despite decent reviews, "Drive" quickly stalled, averaging just a 2.3 rating and 6 share among adults 18-49, and 5.6 million viewers overall.

Monday night's "Drive" didn't help matters, coming in fifth place for the hour (1.5/5) and driving "24" to record lows, dropping Fox to fourth for the night.

Having shoved a Denver boot on "Drive," Fox has now gassed up "House" repeats in the Monday 8 p.m. slot.

Net is still mulling whether to burn off the last two remaining segs of "Drive" on air, or stream the final segs online.

Fox revved up six segs of "Drive," which revolved around a group of people forced to take part in an illegal cross-country race. Nathan Fillion stars, along with Melanie Lynskey, Dylan Baker, Emma Stone, Kevin Alejandro, J.D. Pardo, Taryn Manning, Rochelle Aytes, Michael Hyatt, Mircea Monroe, Riley Smith, Kristin Lehman and Charles Martin Smith.

Tim Minear and Ben Queen created and exec produce "Drive," which comes from 20th Century Fox TV. Greg Yaitanes also exec produced.

Honestly, I saw most of one of the first episode (mostly out of love for Nathan Fillion) and didn't really like how it was paced. It felt a lot like "24."

Seriously, Fox can't keep most of its shows. Good idea or not, most of them bite the dust in the first episodes. Then again a lot of them are really hokey reality shows.

I knew it didn't last long. That's why they can't keep up most of the shows highest ratings.

The "Richlist" only shown once but decided to take it away.

Well, for Heroes. And My Name is Earl. And occasionally Thank God You're Here.

Damn, it just might be where it's at.

People who go on that show are nuts.

I used to not like that show because of how little you really needed to win on that show.

As soon as I saw the title of this thread, it reminded me of Bonus Stage and the beginning of one of the episodes where Joel says "Fox just cancelled *Insert one of four or five random show names here*".

And that's pretty much all I'm gonna contribute. I'm not even sure if I get the channel...

Pretty much if it's on Fox, it's destined to fail (unless it's The Simpsons, King of the Hill, or random shows that managed to make it like X-Files, 24, or The Thank-God-It's-FINALLY-Canceled O.C. and of course... the load of crap karaoke program--American Idol).

Interestingly enough, what they tend to reject gets placed on a cable station that will snatch it up right away and become wildly successful there (Family Guy on Cartoon Network, Firefly, John Doe, and, on occasion, Roar on Sci-Fi, etc).

Fox seems to make way for A LOT of crap, though: Who Wants to be Groped by a Multi-Millionaire, Joe Blow Millionaire, Trading Wives for the Week, any ridiculous reality show trend that's "sweeping the nation" on other continents.
