Best Friends Forever does not appear to be forever, as NBC has pulled the freshman comedy from its line-up effective immediately.
“BFF Fans: Wanted to let you know that our show is being taken off the air until the summer,” series star and exec producer Lennon Parhmam said via Twitter on Friday afternoon. “Hoping to post ep 5 & 6 online asap…. Jessica St. Clair and I CANNOT thank you enough for the love and support of our little show. You guys are truly the best.”
Best Friends Forever starred Parham and St. Clair as BFFs who had been displaced to opposite sides of the country until a divorce reunited them in Brooklyn, even in the apartment they used to share. The series drew 3.9 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating in its April 4 debut, but most recently mustered just 2.65 mil and a 0.8.
According to NBC’s press site, a second weekly helping of the hidden camera prank show Betty White’s Off Their Rockers will fill the Wednesdays-at-8:30 void, at least for the short term.
