The break has little to do with the Olympics and much to do with the "re-engineering" of the premise to contain less political allegory after it was pointed out that the Visitors' Modus Operandi closely resembled that of a certain real life administration...
Link or are you just talking out your ass and bringing politics where it doesn't belong again?

That's certainly too bad if it dies on its feet so quickly. I was actually starting to look forward to at least checking it out.

The other V thread already mentioned this... with a link that is just one entertainment columnist's piece of inside information and speculation. And the link wasn't even posted by darkwing_duck1. But don't let that stop you.

The Big Bang Theory has shown pretty significant growth. It went from 8.3 million and a bubble show to 10 million average viewers from its first to second season. Now its getting over 13 million(albeit in a better time slot) and the heir apparent to 2.5 men.

TRUE BLOOD's ratings kept steadily climbing, too.

Well, if by 'interesting' you mean heavily serialised, then yeah.
I'm trying to think of something that's interesting and episodic, but other than comedies, I'm drawing a blank!

Re: Bad news for V remake

Okay, I've gotten the official confirmation from ABC -- they don't want "V" to be mistaken for some political agenda to smear the current administration. They said they don't want any of their shows to be political. So now the visitors will be called "the deciders," they'll declare that "either you're with us or against us," the human resistance will be called the "axis of evil," the aliens will be big baseball fans and Elizabeth Mitchell's character is now named Hillary.

Oh goodie!

I've missed BSG.

PS, ABC ran a V ad on the back cover of TV Guide, similar to this but with a simpler, white background. Pretty cool - it would make me want to check it out even if I weren't already going to - but I hope Anna's eye reads as "lizard" and not as "cat."

All this change just to make sure it doesn't mirror the current presidency, has made me completely lose interest. I will now not be giving the show a chance.

showrunner change

On the day of its premiere Tuesday, ABC’s “V” underwent a shake-up in its top
producing ranks, Variety reports.

Scott Rosenbaum ("The Shield," "Chuck") has been named showrunner and executive
producer. He replaces Scott Peters, who will remain an executive producer, as will

Jace Hall. Executive producer Jeff Bell left the show.

And ABC has probably just shot themselves in the foot by not having V on Hulu this morning.
