Anchor’s Aweigh

Yep, it’s all over for the perky little reality series “Anchorwoman” about former WWE diva and bikini model Lauren Jones’ new career as a news anchor for a Texas TV station.

After just a single airing, Fox took a look at the dismal ratings the day after and shuttled the show off its schedule.

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT A SERIOUS JOURNALIST LIKE LAUREN?

At 2.7 million viewers on Wednesday, the series brought in less than a third of the viewers who had been watching “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Jones seemed an unlikely anchor, even for the small town of Tyler, Texas, given her background. In addition to her WWE credit, she also served as a Barker Beauty on “The Price Is Right” and wore the crown of Miss New York.

For those three of you who happened to like the show, Fox won’t let you down _ as long as you have an internet connection. Unaired episodes of “Anchorwoman” will be available on Fox’s website through Fox on Demand.

    I liked that show! Especially the anchor/reporter with the major grudge. She deserves her own spin-off! What’s her name…Annalisa Petralia. That’s it.
