FIRST ON LOST REMOTE: A few Lost Remoters have tipped us with the news that Fox will not air the remainder of the Anchorwoman episodes — the decision coming down less than a day after it premiered with dismal ratings. We’re still waiting for official word, but here’s the Fox memo as sent to us below (thanks for the tip, all!).
UPDATE: Fox confirms it.
You did whaaaaat?
