U.S. broadcast network Fox has pulled the low-rated unscripted programs I Wanna Marry “Harry” (pictured) and Riot from its Tuesday night schedule.

The shows will be replaced by reruns of Family Guy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl and The Mindy Project.

Unaired episodes from “Harry” will be available online via, Fox On Demand, FOX NOW and Hulu beginning on Friday (June 13). “We are currently discussing an appropriate place on our schedule for the unaired episodes,” a Fox rep added in a statement.

Produced by Zig Zag and Ryan Seacrest Productions, I Wanna Marry “Harry” is a Bachelor-style reality dating series in which 12 American women compete for the affections of a Prince Harry impersonator whom they believe to be the real British prince.

Riot , meanwhile, is a game show from Shine America and exec producer Steve Carell that features celebrities and comedians squaring off in song, dance and sketch challenges while navigating a 22 degree-angled set. It is hosted by Australian comedian Rove McManus.

Recent episodes for both series averaged a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49.
