Re: The Cancellation Game - October

Is it my imagination or does CBS usually wait till later in the season to pull the trigger on anything? There's something about this that seems odd in terms of timing...

Ben & Kate has already been given more episdoes, but the other two: yes.

And CBS will pull stuff early if it's abysmal like How to be a Gentleman and Chaos. Made and Jersey was a colossal failure, even on Friday.

Chaos was just too smarmy, as if Fonzie was going to take down the eastern block single handed.

Ben and Kate is awful.

In the last episode, we need to find out that Ben is the father of Kate's child.

Maybe it's because I'm female with all sisters and no brothers, but the brother/sister relationship on TV and in movies almost always has a creepy vibe to me. Or maybe I've just watched that episode of Friends where Rachel dates the guy who is weirdly close to his sister too often.

I'm an only child.

All brothers and sisters are creepy.

I have a sister, and Ben and Kate is really weird.

I say Mob Doctor is next, then Partners then some NBC comedies.

I don't find anything creepy about Ben and Kate. It's a far cry from The Dreamers.

Incest doesn't count if you're French.

Re: The Cancellation Game - October

Ratings are so bad this year, Wall Street is worried.

Nashville and Arrow debuted strong but Chicago Fire, not so much. But Chicago Fire improved on its lead, and it's on NBC so let's see how that shakes out.

Looks like soapy/bitchy shows do work for ABC but the formula that NBC can rally around still remains to be seen. Maybe the hunkiness of the firefighters was played up too much too appeal to the male viewers who are the market for action shows. CW's gamble on expanding their male audience with Arrow may be paying off, though shows like that can nose dive in week two.

Re: The Cancellation Game - October

I turned Chicago fire off 10 minutes in.

Kept looking for an "and" and it just wasn't there.

They're fire men AND spies.

They're firemen AND junkies.

They're firemen AND all having affairs.

They're firemen AND from the future.

Closest I could come was...

They're firemen AND they're sad that their friend died in a fire.

Well?

If that's the heights and depths of your imagination... Why not just make a reality TV show about firemen then?

Oh.

Because real firemen aren't sexy like super models.

That's the "and." They're firemen AND they're super sexy models.

Not enough girls watch NBC. They should have swapped with ABC for Last Resort.

NBC is never going to touch anything submarine related with a barge pole after seaQuest DSV.
