did well for ABC so how can they be down on sci-fi? And they advertised V
during the Flash Forward
premiere; if they've "already given up on it," why would they do that?
This news is kinda difficult to fathom...from the previews, it looks like it would have a good chance of appealing to the same audience as Flash Forward
(while having the potential to be a lot more ironic and fun).
The general audience won't know a thing about the scheduling and wouldn't be deterred from watching because of it. If the premiere gets healthy ratings, maybe ABC will change its mind again, or at the very least, give the show enough of a post-Olympics push that they will give it a fighting chance.
