Channel Five, the UK terrestrial net, has dropped 8 Simple Rules from its schedules. The station aired 8 Simple Rules on Sundays as part of a new block for teenagers, but the show disappeared over the Christmas period - while Hannah Montana, which formed an hour of the block, continued to air.
Now Christmas and the New Year have passed, regular TV schedules are returning, but 8 Simple Rules is not, and Hannah Montana won't be around for long either.
The teen block will continue for two weeks (January 6th and 13th), without 8 Simple Rules, and then will disappear from our TV screens.
8 Simple Rules is now off UK screens again, having previously disappeared when Disney-owned ABC1 shutdown in September.
Update: five have confirmed they have no plans to air any more episodes of 8 Simple Rules but say they do still own the rights to air the first season.
