ABC on Friday announced it had canceled the sitcom Work It after only two outings, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In the series, which premiered on January 3, Lee Standish (played by Ben Koldyke) and Angel Ortiz (Amaury Nolasco) played two unemployed men who land jobs as sales representatives for a pharmaceutical company dressed as women.

Before its premiere, the show drew the ire of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest gay rights group, and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which said that the show reinforced mistaken stereotypes about transgender people.

The groups protested the show in a full page ad which appeared in Variety.

Work It will harm transgender people,” read the ad's headline.

Work It, however, was pulled due to a combination of low ratings and bad reviews.

“While many of ABC's positive and groundbreaking portrayals of LGBT people have been critical and popular successes, the public had little interest in this outdated show,” Herndon Graddick, senior director of programs and communications at GLAAD, said in a statement.
