Re: Has the Blood & Chrome miniseries aired yet?

Because if the reaction is bad, it will make them look like fools for ever greenlighting the pilot.

And if the reaction is good, they'll be under pressure to greenlight a whole series, even if they would rather do wrestling or vampires or wrestling vampires.

That why networks never show backdoor pilots unless they've already decided they'd be willing to do a whole series, and the backdoor pilot ratings are just the last hurdle for the show to clear.

Otherwise, its a no-win situation for them. Presumably, SyFy has written B&C off at this point, otherwise they would have done something long before now.
