"Earl" Gets an Early Dismissal from WUTV

After only six weeks, WUTV is dropping reruns of NBC's "My Name is Earl" from the lineup on Monday.

Reruns of "Seinfeld" will air at 6 p.m. weekdays in place of "Earl."

Nick Magnini, Channel 29's general manager, said the move was made because of "disappointing ratings."

In other programming moves Monday, "Friends" reruns replace "Seinfeld" at midnight, "South Park" reruns replace "Friends" at 12:30 a.m. and an informercial replaces "South Park" at 1 a.m.

All is not lost for "Earl." Reruns still run on WUTV's sister station, WNYO, at midnight and 12:30 a.m.
