Knights of Prosperity

ABC/Eric Liebowitz

Poor Donal Logue. Oh, how I dig him, but he just can't seem to catch a break lately when it comes to TV projects. His latest ABC effort, Knights of Prosperity—about a gang trying to rob Mick Jagger—is apparently no exception.

My sources say ABC told Knights' writing staff today the comedy would not be picked up for the "back nine" episodes, which basically means they're planning to shut it down after the current 13-episode commitment.

ABC is not officially uttering a peep about the C-word (that's "cancellation," you dirty birdies!) and is simply announcing a time-slot swap with According to Jim. But the writing has been on the wall the past two weeks, as American Idol sucked up viewership from everywhere in the universe and slashed Knights' audience in half (down to about 3 million viewers).

Mick Jagger, you can sleep well tonight.
