One source says that The CW nixed the agreement after MRC fell behind on payments, while another insider denies the allegation, Variety reports. A spokesman for MRC said that the two companies may bring back the programming block at a later point, once the content, financials and timing are worked out.
That the block got the chop already isn't surprising in light of ratings. The MRC slot, which included newbies Valentine and Easy Money, saw on average 1.04 million viewers weekly - a 42 percent drop from the same time last year. The two shows were put on hiatus in October, with plans for In Harm's Way and 4Real unclear.
