Shows Nearly Cancelled?
OK, it’s that time of year where a bunch of shows are on the edge and might just get cancelled. Here’s a list and my thoughts as to whether they deserve to go.
Chuck – I thought this was a great season although the last episode was pretty horrible. Part of the problem is when they air it – too much competition. Still NBC is desperate so I hope it’ll be back.
V – I watched the first few episodes and it was passible. The rest are still awaiting watching on our DVR and I doubt I’ll watch them.
FlashForward – seriously is anyone here even watching? I tried in the fall, but it seemed just pointless. Reminds me of that alien invasion series from ABC in Florida a few years back. Great concept, horrible implementation.
Ghost Whisperer – my wife loves this show. I can’t stand it. But seriously where can you go with the show?
Numbers – I know some here love it. I couldn’t into it after some atrociously bad physics in the early season. I suspect it’s expensive and will disappear.
Human Target – I really dig this show. Yes it’s cheesy in that 80′s A-Team kind of way. But the actors are great and pull it off. Hope this one makes it. But if it doesn’t I won’t be heart broken.
Heroes – Hey, I actually thought this had been cancelled long ago. I guess not!
Fringe – I thought this was on the edge but I guess it got renewed despite being expensive and having mediocre ratings this year. I hated last week’s episode though although the previous two were fantastic.
American Chopper – this had been cancelled in February but Discovery and its channels are nearly as desperate for programming as NBC. So it was renewed this month.
There are lots of other ones that have been canceled (like 24) but these are the ones that I thought folks might be interested in.
