Ryan Seacrest participates in the "Knock Knock Live" pop up event outside the News Corporation/Fox Building on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, in New York. 

When Ryan Seacrest, the “busiest man in Hollywood,” touches something in the entertainment world, it usually turns to gold. But it seems the “American Idol” host, radio personality and producer of such mega-hits like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and the Emmy Award-winning “Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution” missed the mark this time.

The new Seacrest-hosted reality TV show “Knock Knock Live” was pulled by Fox after just two episodes, Variety.com reports. The reason? The show earned abysmal ratings. The series “averaged a 0.6 rating and 1.75 million viewers, one of Fox's lowest series debuts ever,” per The Hollywood Reporter.

“Knock Knock Live” -- a program which involved celebrities such as David Beckham and Justin Bieber surprising regular folk at their homes with prizes -- will be replaced with comedy repeats. Viewers can expect to see encores of “The Last Man on Earth” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in the Tuesday 9 p.m. timeslot. 

“Knock Knock Live” was produced by Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment and Dick Clark Productions. Seacrest served as executive producer.
