ABC's The Mole could be the first of the new reality concepts to go under.
The New York Daily News reports that Mole producers are postponing some regional recruiting sessions for a planned third edition of the series. An audition planned for Los Angeles this weekend reportedly is proceeding.
A spokesman for Mole producer Stone Stanley Entertainment, told the News the move to postpone the auditions was prompted by the current mood in the country - and the low ratings, as the producers monitor those vital signs.
So far, The Mole II has barely had a heartbeat, inspiring miniscule ratings and averaging less than seven million viewers for its initial episodes.
