If the ratings hold firm or don't drop too much, it's proof that the show has its own audience and not just people who are too lazy to reach the remote after Idol. Because if that's all the show has, it deserves cancellation.
Fair enough, they were coasting on Idol.
It's only right that another show gets that slot that will do more than coast.
Oh well, good luck to the actors getting new jobs because several of them are quite good and deserve better material.
