They cancelled Boss last year too, Starz is almost as bad the conventional networks.

225K is not alot of eyeballs, but it's the subscription numbers that count.

It's all about viewers. I'm curious to how many people pirated the show vs watched it vs watched it from Itunes, or other paid provider [Amazon, Itunes. I know Netflix doesn't carry Starz shows.]

My understanding is the subscriptions are more important then viewers.

If only 225K are watching Magic city, but you have a million subscribers, who cares?

It seems my logic is probably wrong, considering that the show got cancelled.

I think starz, HBO, cinemax still watch the numbers of eyes on the show, vs the number of subscribers.

Consider the cost of producing the show, vs number of viewers, vs number of subscribers.
So you may have 1 million paid subscriptions, but less then 1/4 of them are watching the show. Hence it's not worth the money to keep producing the show.
Now if the number was 300-400k, then it might be worth keeping the show around, but then that is a "might be".
500k and and up [If only 1 million subscribers], then of course you'll keep the show.

The only reason why i got Starz was for Spartacus. Once that was gone [the original actor died], I gave up on Starz.
I don't miss Starz in the least bit.

With spartacus done i don't see any reason to keep my subscription to Starz.

Instead of magic city they need to produce a show that gets people to stay.

I have Starz / Starz-HD because its part of a subscription packaged bundle.

I never watched "Magic City" though,....from the promos it just looked boring IMO.

Whenever a scripted show is canceled its a bit of a sad thing since there are so many unscripted shows popping up,...

Magic city was Starz answer to Mad Men, they are trying to be everything to everyone.

White Queen is supposedly their answer to Game of Thrones

Not sure how to position Black Sails.

Black Sails - Coming January 2014

The trailers start to show up towards the end run of Spartacus so I kind of see it as them positioning it as a quasi sex and violence equivalent.

Even if that isnt the intention they have big shoes to fill either way.

I thought the White Queen would be more in line with the Tudors. As it's based on Queen Elizabeth. Hence it will lack some of the fantasy elements that GOT has.

»www.starz.com/originals/TheWhiteQueen/About
quote:
The White Queen is a riveting portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne.

The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster.

The House of York's young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick "The Kingmaker." But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick's plan to control the throne comes crashing down.

It looks interesting, but not enough to get me to buy into a Starz sub. Considering I could watch the adult movie Pirates, for sex, blood, and pirate action

hmm that black seals look godo added to my watch list. I need to finish spartacus watched like 4 episodes of the new season then just stopped. was getting bored of the gore and over use of sex but seems it's worth the watch from what people said.

The white queen was also canceled it's it's the BBC show.

This version of the White Queen is supposedly fresh and new for Starz. I'm hoping it's as good as the Tudors was.

Though I watched the Tudors on DVD, not Starz.

If the numbers are decent Starz might go it alone. Similar to how Cinemax got into Strike Back.
