Made in Jersey has won the not-so-coveted First New Fall Series to Be Canceled trophy, beating fellow contenders Partners, The Mob Doctor, Animal Practice and Guys with Kids to the finish line.

CBS has announced the legal drama's removal from its Friday night lineup after just a two-episode run. It had been slotted at 8 p.m. (central) between two established crime dramas, CSI: NY and Blue Bloods.

CSI: NY is moving to Made in Jersey's 8 p.m. spot, effective immediately. Beginning Nov. 2nd, Undercover Boss will be Friday night's new leadoff hitter. Until then, CBS is using putty at 7 p.m. in the form of two NCIS repeats (on Oct. 12th and 26th) and a Hawaii Five-0 rerun on Oct. 19th.

***ABC Family says the fifth season of The Secret Life of the American Teenager will be its last. The network is promising a proposal and a wedding in the climactic season, which will start up in March 2013.

There also will be a new holiday season episode, "Hedy's Happy Holiday House," on Monday, Nov. 19th after an all-day marathon of American Teenager repeats. The series premiered in June 2008 and is the longest-running scripted series ever to air on ABC Family. It reached the 100-episode milestone in June of this year, and will have 12 episodes for its final run.
