Have you ever seen Earth: Final Conflict or Andromeda?
Yes, they sucked. Call them creative failures but they did something right or they wouldn't have stayed on the air for several years when most shows get cancelled in less than one.

And ENT's 4 seasons (out of planned 7) were a failure, no matter how you spin it.

They deserved three seasons.

Someone gave oral to get a fourth season.

Ironically, the fourth season was best, creatively speaking, until Berman woke up and gave us his valentines.
Manny Coto was the one making the show, except for the premiere and finale of that season. He should have been the one running it all along.

Why does every damn topic here always become "Why Enterprise sucks/failed?"
Why does everyone talk about the Ice Berg that brought down the Titanic?

If you said Lucky 7, you are a winner.

Next up, Ironside?

Looks like Lucky 7 was the bad kind of luck...

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I'm hoping Shawn Saves The World dies quickly. Or else it's going to be the new Whitney: The show that's so terrible that even the commercials make you cringe, yet you're forced to see the commercials for during Parks & Recreation.

I've never seen anybody try harder to be charming.

Whitney was fantastic you mean man!

I didn't like the pilot to Lucky 7, and I still haven't watched episode two.

It reminded me of "The Nine" which was also cancelled quickly.

Does Camp count?

Camp was cancelled a couple days ago after completing a ten episode long first season.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Yeah I don't get why ABC thought another lottery show would work.

Next up will be a comedy, they are seem to be failing again this year, or Hostages.

Camp doesn't count because it's summer trash.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Hostages is a limited series. 13 episodes. It's all already been filmed. In a way Hostages is already cancelled, but the ratings would have to be horrible for it to be pulled when there's a finish line in a sight a couple weeks down the track.

Sean saves the World seems like a show that should be on Nickleodeon.

Here is the bitter sweet thing about Sean saves the world.

He "saved" Megan Hilty when Smash was going down.

Megan and Sean shared almost all their scenes together in Smash.

It was totally Titanic if Kate Winslet wasn't a massive asshole.

He was floating on a desk top, saw her drowning, and invited her to sit on it with him so that they could float off together and live happily ever after in his sitcom.

You can't tell me that's not adorable?

Now, if only the writers on Sean Saves the World weren't begging for a slapping.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Hostages has 11 more episodes to air, the last episode got 6 million viewers and a 1.6 in the demo or something. At that point an NCIS repeat would be better.

And "limited run" is just what networks call shows they think will fail. "It didn't fail, it was a limited run show". But then when it's a hit they will go "We have ideas for several seasons" like they did with Under the Dome.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Oh, I don't think it's any good, the only thing this show has going for it is that at least half the family is going to die in episode 12, and maybe everyone else in episode 13.

I don't think anyone will die. If people die and it was a hit then how would they do a second season?

Heh, I remember that show.

The pilot made me excited to see how things went down.

Then it became obvious really quickly the show was never going to go anywhere.

And in Under the Dome's case, they then pretend it never was a "mini-series event" in the first place.
