CBS Cancels ‘EZ Streets’ Series After Ratings Continue to Slide

CBS canceled the crime drama “EZ Streets” after last week’s telecast, the program’s lowest-rated yet.

The network will replace the first-year show, which starred Ken Olin and Jason Gedrick, with an episode of “Walker, Texas Ranger” this Wednesday. That would have been “EZ Streets’ ” last remaining hour. Future scheduling has yet to be set.

CBS had pulled the series after two airings in October, then relaunched it in early March. Ratings remained poor for those six installments, however, with just 5.9 million people watching last Wednesday’s episode--less than half the audience for both “PrimeTime Live” and “Law & Order” in the same hour.
