"Rake" is the fourth Fox show canceled on Wednesday.

The Greg Kinnear vehicle was cut shortly after after the cancelation of "Dads," "Enlisted" and "Surviving Jack."

While the network would not officially confirm that the show was canceled, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that two of the leads have been let out of their contracts, signaling the cancellation.

"Rake" had been struggling ever since it's soft January premiere, which drew a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic. The show was moved to Fridays in March, where it did so poorly that the finale was actually shifted to a Saturday night in favor of "Kitchen Nightmares" reruns.

It's been a busy half-week for Fox thus far. On Monday, the network ordered "Gotham" to series. On Tuesday, it ordered "Empire" and "Red Band Society" to series, later upping the "Mulaney" order by 10 episodes.
