    Free Agents was #2. H8R was #3.

    I never picked H8R because I never really thought of it as a "show" for some reason. The whole idea was so unappealing, it was never even ON my radar.

    Charlie's Anges has lasted longer than I thought it would.

    Me too .. I watched the pilot and have 2 more recorded, but I'm likely to just dump them. It was pretty bad.

    Playboy was canned.. There was a syndicated Playboy Club in the early 60's. Hugh hosted it. The show lasted a few years.

    I've only been recording it, hadn't watched yet. This is why I record and don't watch new shows until they have a full season pickup nowadays.

    I thought it had some promise as a modern odd couple, but with only 2 episodes before casting off it would never get legs that quick. Supporting cast was odd also.

    We were sorta disappointed with Terra Nova and especially with House last night. House, the character, was totally annoying. Didn't he lose his medical license? We do not give House long to live.

    I believe they decided to put Whitney reruns in the Free Agents slot.

    I actually liked this show specifically because of the supporting cast. Rhys Darby and Dave Foley are great and made this show above average imo.
    Sorry to see it going. It was pulling around 7.5 million an ep which isn't bad numbers at all for a new show.

    NBC is hoping it will pick up some viewers by rerunning episodes. It may, as I couldn't record it on Thursday while I was checking out "Secret Circle" which I dumped. So now I'm recording the Wednesday reruns and the Thursday new episodes of "Whitney."
    I'm sorry to see CBS not give it more of a chance. But it's not surprising. While Last Thursday's ratings of 2.5/7 - 7.82 million would make NBC's night ("Parks & Recreation" in that time slot pulled 1.9/5 - 4.13 million), CBS wants to retain more of "The Big Bang Theory" 4.4/13 - 13.63 audience to lead into "Person of Interest."

    I was wondering when they announced "Rules of Engagement" would be scheduled on Saturday which of the new comedies they feared might be too weak, Monday's "2 Broke Girls" or "How to be a Gentleman." "Girls" retains (maybe even with a slight increase) from "HIMYM."

    In addition to The CW ordering more episodes of "Ringer", NBC has ordered more episodes of "Prime Suspect", the crime procedural starring Maria Bello according to Deadline Hollywood.

    We watched the first ep of Whitney when it aired. I thought it was the absolute WORST sitcom I have ever seen (I'd rather watch Herman's Head!). The writing was horrible and, to me, there wasn't one laugh to be had in the entire ep. I can't believe I watched the whole thing.
    I also didn't think Free Agents was any good either. Not complete unwatchable (like Whitney) but not even average enough to give it another chance.

    I loved Herman's Head - Same feelings as you about the first episode of Whitney though.

    Yeah, Whitney is not the funniest show, but its semi watchable to me :D, I get one or two laughs out of it. I don't think I've managed to stick with a SINGLE show I tried out this year (Terra Nova, 2 Broke Girls, Whitney, Last Man Standing). The ratings came out for Whitney and it only got a 2.0 rating (down from 2.8? last week)... yeah, thats not looking good. Didn't it get a full season pick up? Surprising with the ratings. Might do a single season and then NBC will pull the plug.

    Isn't the worse sitcom ever Til Death?
