I think it stinks.
Between 666 and Last resort, they tried doing something a little different then the typical cop drama.
My wife and I like 666, and I like last resort. Though, truth be told, I felt last resort may have been better as a mini-series. I'm kinda curious as to what the long range plan was with that show.
Meaning if the show ran for ten years, would they still be on the island?
But then again, MASH ran for about that long, and it was mostly filmed in tents.
But, I also read they are in "option" meaning one or the other could be picked up as a summer runner.
As with last years Pan Am, ABC is retaining its option to revive either show for next season. So if midseason shows like Red Widow and Zero Hour perform worse than these two and the networks pilot season goes poorly, theres a chance one or both could be resuscitated. It happened to CBS Unforgettable, which was cancelled last season and then later announced to return next summer. But the example of Pan Am is far more typical. (The Red Widow pilot is quite good but, then again, I also loved the pilot for Last Resort).
Nashville = 9.4 million viewers and a 3.2 in 18-49
Last Resort = 9.2 million and 2.4 in 18-49
666 Park Avenue = 6.7 million and 2.4 in 18-49
Unforgettable will be returning next summer on CBS.
When "Unforgettable" returns for Season 2 during the summer of 2013 it will reportedly look a little different. According to TVLine, the cast is undergoing a shake-up.
Series star Poppy Montgomery has signed on to appear in the newly-revived series, as have co-stars Dylan Walsh and Jane Curtin. But Michael Gaston, Kevin Rankin and Daya Vaidya won't be returning for Season 2, meaning the NYPD squad will likely feature some new recruits.
"Unforgettable" was canceled by CBS after one season. The show aired Tuesdays at 10 p.m. and posted solid ratings, averaging 12.1 million viewers per episode.
What I'm curious about is the viewer numbers. Why are shows getting canceled that average 9 million or more viewers?
Is it because the cost per episode?
CW seems to be happy with 5 million viewers or a little less as do Sy-fy and USA.
I'm not sure how many FX, TNT, or A&E draw in for their shows. But they all seem to do little cancellations compared to the "big" networks.--
Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
