    Default 3 lbs.

    Caught this new series last night, and I love it! I think Stanley Tucci is sexy as hell, too!
    Plan to make this one of my "must sees" each week.

    It seems to me like they're trying too much to be like "House"

    Sorry sweetrebel....

    Brain drain: '3 Lbs.' goes to early grave
    CBS places medical drama on hiatus
    By ADAM DAWTREY, JOSEF ADALIAN

    It's not brain surgery, but it's canceled.
    New CBS medical drama "3 Lbs." has been declared brain dead after just three weeks, though the Eye has yet to pull the plug officially.

    After weighing the latest Nielsen numbers, net execs confirmed Wednesday that the Peter Ocko-produced medical drama has been placed on hiatus effective immediately.

    While the net isn't officially saying the show has been canceled, there are no plans to produce more segs beyond the eight already filmed, and it's unlikely CBS will give the show a shot elsewhere on its sked.

    As it is, a special 9 p.m. Tuesday airing of "3 Lbs." slated for next week has been scrapped in favor of "The Unit," which normally occupies the timeslot. Following a planned preemption for the Victoria's Secret fashion show, it seems likely CBS will fill the 10 p.m. Tuesday slot with a selection of repeats from its crime show library.

    Killing "3 Lbs." was a no-brainer. Skein's low ratings dropped each week it aired, with its overall young adult average of a 2.7/7 down 16% from that of previous slot occupant "Smith."

    Ocko's "3 Lbs.," from CBS Paramount Network Television, becomes the latest casualty in what's become a death slot for CBS skeins. Its succumbing after three airings Tuesdays at 10 follows similarly short stints this year from dramas "Smith" and "Love Monkey," as well as reality skein "Tuesday Night Book Club."

    Last season, "Close to Home" also performed miserably in the slot but was saved by a shift to Friday.

    I saw the commercials and didn't like it...the whole "It's just a box of wires" attitude just didn't sit well with me...
