new TV medical drama has been canceled after just three episodes. In "3 Lbs," the actor played a brain surgeon. The show failed to take off, and low ratings prompted bosses at CBS to scrap it.
The medical drama suffered a series of setbacks before it even aired - Dylan McDermott
was originally slated to play Tucci's ambitious medic and played the neurosurgeon, Dr. Douglas Hansen, in a pilot episode last year, but producers felt the project was too dark.
The show, titled for the weight of the average human brain, also featured Cynthia Nixon
as Hansen's wife.
