Two new shows canceled

October 15, 1992|By New York Daily News

Add CBS' "Frannie's Turn" (Saturdays, 8 p.m.) and NBC's "The Round Table" (Fridays, 9 p.m.) to the list of early-season casualties.

"Frannie's Turn," which starred Miriam Margolyes as a disgruntled middle-aged working-class woman, will have its final telecast on Oct. 24, provided there's no Game No. 6 of the World Series. The show, which ranked No. 81 out of 90 entries last week, will have gone down the tubes after six telecasts.

"The Round Table," from producer Aaron Spelling ("Beverly Hills, 90210"), will bite the dust after Saturday's telecast, which will be seen at 8:30 p.m. instead of its usual time. The show ranked 72nd last week.

NBC has already canceled reality shows "Final Appeal: From the Files of 'Unsolved Mysteries'" (8 p.m.) and "What Happened?" (8:30 p.m.). NBC will fill the vacated Friday slots with "Perry Mason" specials and other movies until permanent replacements are named. No replacement yet for "Frannie's Turn," either.
