Fox has pulled its freshman legal drama “Justice” off the schedule, effective immediately.

The dismissal comes after the Victor Garber vehicle failed to gain traction in two different slots — its original Wednesday 9 p.m. berth and, most recently, Monday at 9 p.m., following “Prison Break.”

In its airing last week, “Justice” averaged 5.9 million viewers, holding on to just half of the “Prison Break” lead-in.

For the next two weeks, Fox will air repeats of hit medical drama “House” in the Monday 9 p.m. slot, which is warming up for the return of “24” in January.

‘Brian’ gets boostABC has ordered a full season of “What About Brian,” a sophomore drama about a group of close-knit friends.

After a midseason debut last spring, “What About Brian” received a surprising second-season pickup in May.

So far this season, the ensemble drama has improved slightly over its performance last season in the Monday 10 p.m. slot among total viewers (6.7 million vs. 6.3 million).
