^Exactly!

However I think it was more CBS pushing the limited run series while the creators were publicly coming out and talking about having ideas through season 3 and 4.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Yeah, though that only happened once they saw how high the ratings for the first few episodes were, namely the first two, then they announced a second season. Which strikes me as a stupid decision as I think it could have been much better had it not been stretched out. If they'd have gone with the original plan and gave it a bit more focus towards a resolution, they'd have a much stronger show instead of meandering around like it did.

I've just seen we are crazy and a bit of The Millers I don't think they will last long.

I agree, but I think the point was always for more than 13 episodes. I don't think that much of the story was changed at all and I doubt we would have gotten any kind of resolution.

I watched Super Fun Night, and I have to say I doubt it is long for this world. It wasn't the worst thing I've ever seen, but it most certainly was not good.

Thing is, I don't think I ever saw it advertised as anything more than a miniseries until after the ratings it got. I kind of feel that they jeopardized it with extending it, that they'll have to put it out of its misery instead of ending it with dignity like they could have. It's why I feel ratings don't give a complete picture.

It's Ally McBeal in a fun mirror.

They're already doing that over in Drop Dead Diva.

The pilot was so bad that ABC didn't air the pilot, they started with the second episode.

I HATED the 10 minutes I saw. However the comedies this year are not funny. Micheal J Fox Show and The Crazy Ones are fun and sweet, but not funny. The Millers and Super Fun Night were horrible. Oddly Back in the Game was really fun.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

So we missed the episode where the female leads make the big mystery pot of superfunnight ideas?

I hate it when they screw with the viewing order.

The Michael J fox Show is terrible, I like the energy in The Crazy Ones and Will Arnett is the failing presence in The Millers, his character should die so we can focus on the... Does Margo Martindale pitching a flag here mean trouble for The Americans?

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

The next ones canceled have to be Hostages or Betrayal. If not one of the countless comedies no one will even know is missing.

I could not make it the whole way through Betrayal.

It was just so small, and took forever to get there.

I tried to watch that show "Welcome to the Family" last Thursday on NBC, it was so bad I turned it off inside of ten minutes and went to bed. I can't see it lasting too long.

They succeed in making something inoffensive and family friendly.

Funny would have been better.

I didn't think it was bad, but I didn't think it was good. I think it was just there.

And the latino sons on the show, both seem really gay to me. It was distracting because the guy was supposed to be the father and I'm like "He seems like the fag hag to me".

Maybe that's the twist! He is actually gay and just did it once to see if he liked women!

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I like Mike O'Malley, so I was hoping it'd be funny. But it just didn't do anything for me. I'll amend my earlier statement and say it wasn't bad, but like bigdaddy said, it was just there.
