Channel Nine has pulled The Boss is Coming to Dinner after just two episodes.
The series, in which an employer meets 3 prospective candidates over a home-cooked meal, pulled just 655,000 viewers in its second outing – a drop of 465,000 viewers from The Block which preceded it.
On Wednesday night it was thrashed by The Gruen Transfer on 1.4m and Spicks and Specks on 1.21m. City Homicide nudged 1.1m and House was 919,000.
Based on a UK format, the series was produced by Shine Australia who are believed to have had a deal for 10 episodes.
It will be replaced by RPA, which pulled 720,000 in the later 9:30pm timeslot. At 9:30pm Nine will air new episodes of Amazing Medical Stories.
Nine has also pulled “Encore” episodes which were to screen over the weekend.
Figures for The Block haven’t been spectacular but Nine will be happy it held its audience in the second week.
Nine is yet to indicate any plans for unaired episodes of Boss.
