ABC is calling time on the Christian Slater fronted drama series Mind Games.

The network has pulled the series from their schedule effective immediately. ABC will be slotting in repeat episodes of breakout hit Resurrection in the Tuesday night 10pm time-slot for the next two weeks, before putting Celebrity Wife Swap in the slot as of April 15th

The cancellation comes after only five episodes of Mind Games have aired and after the series failed to make a dent in the ratings. The series launched to a soft 3.6 million viewers and a 1.1 A18-49 rating, with the most recent episode sinking to 2.1 million viewers and a 0.7 A18-49 rating. This marks the latest drama to fail in ABC’s black-hole Tuesday 10pm time-slot following in the footsteps of the short-lived Lucky 7 and Killer Women, both of which have also been cancelled.
