NBC yanks Best Friends Forever from its schedule
Even BFFs experience a rough patch -- and if you're on NBC, that can sometimes mean the end of a friendship. The network has pulled midseason freshman comedy "Best Friends Forever" from its lineup indefinitely.

Series co-creator, star and executive producer Lennon Parham announced the news Friday on Twitter: "BFF Fans: Wanted to let you know that our show is being taken off the air until the summer. Hoping to post ep 5 & 6 online asap…"

Only four of the six episodes ordered for the first season aired, leaving the two Parham mentions in limbo.

The Wednesday sitcom centered on Parham and St. Clair as besties who, after living apart on opposite sides of the country, are reunited and find themselves sharing an apartment they used to live in after one divorces. The comedy premiered to 3.9 million viewers in early April -- and things only dipped from there.

Another dose of the hidden camera show "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" will air in its 8:30 p.m. slot for now.
