I managed to catch the full series on the 101 but that was just luck.

I can see why its going to be on NBC as it is produced elsewhere specifically for low budget. NBC might as well be the test platform for broadcast TV's efforts to produce less expensive scripted content. If it fails to draw over 3 million but draws over 2 million they can shuffle it back to Syfy where it can be regarded as moderately successful programming if over 1 million follow it.
The networks need to wake up an smell the coffee. There is really no reason this day in age for the networks to think they are intitled to better number for scripted programming than the basic pay channels. In fact with some of the crap they are putting out, they should be ashamed. If the big 4 would lower their expectations a bit, they might learn they are not hurting as bad as they would like us to think they are.
