Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

It is certainly possible the writing has drastically improved since the very beginning of the run when I watched it and hated it.

But if a show took ten seasons to bring in some half decent writing you certainly can not take too much objection to other peoples' claims that it is not a very well written show.

Those kinds of shows do tend to have huge fluctuations in writing quality over a long series run. CSI, for example, had some very good writing in the first season. Then by the fourth season they were doing crap like, one random civilian figures out who the killer is, confronts him with this knowledge, then goes directly into a tanning booth in the next room, and is surprised when he gets murdered.

The Murder, She Wrote reboot. Yeah, I'm calling it this early...

Murder she Wrote (and Matlock) had the same problem that Dora the Explorer and Blues Clues had.

Their audience would just vanish.

What's the difference between first grade and Hell?

Well, no one was expecting this: full season pick up for Fox's Dads

Fox is fucked. Should move Dads to Fridays and Raising Hope to Tuesdays.

Of course this is the network that gave The Mindy Project a full season and then a second season so who knows.

Back in the Game is cancelled.

It was well made, occasionally funny, but frankly every episode was the same.

The Goldbergs has a full season order, I'm surprised how "successfully" feel-goody this Wonder Years rip off is.

The Client List is done. Hewitt is so beautiful but I fear that there is something remedial about her personality in real life considering the tragically pisspoor TV serieses she always seems to attach her star to.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Yeah Back in the Game being cancelled is just another stupid move in a long line of Stupid moves done by ABC. They renewed three other shows, including Super Fun Night for four episodes, yet the show with the most consistent ratings, Back in the Game, gets canceled. Doesn't make sense. I would have kept them all, moved SHIELD to Thursdays at 8pm (Young people will watch Live+3 over the weekend so the ratings drop.) and made Tuesday a comedy block. Being ABC's comedies seem to do decently but they can't get a new drama off the ground to save their life.

Back in the Game was terrible. The Goldbergs, The Trophy Wife, and The MJF Show are the only three new comedies I thought were any good.

I'm talking ratings, not personal opinion. I find all three of the shows you listed to be fine, just boring.

I'm guessing Once Upon A Time In Wonderland is about to get the axe. I guess they'll let them finish up the 13 episodes.
