http://insidetv.ew.c...er-13-episodes/

So long, Maria Bello: You were good while you lasted. Production on NBC’s Prime Suspect will shut down after the 13th episode, which is currently filming in New York. The network just announced its new midseason lineup and the cop drama is not on it.

Another remake, The Firm, will bow in its place.

The series, while appreciated by critics, was not embraced by viewers: The remake only averaged a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.1 million viewers. Since NBC already canceled Playboy and Free Agents, NBC clearly wanted to keep its options open on Prime Suspect before deciding to yank another low-rated new show off its schedule. It tried running repeats of the show on other nights, but Bello and her cohorts just couldn’t scare up more viewers.

For now, NBC is not saying Prime Suspect is canceled, though cast members were reportedly told the show is history.

NBC is in a difficult position, it just seems like no matter what they put on the air, no one is interested.

I keep seeing a bunch of monkeys pushing keys when I think of how decisions are made at NBC.

And I thought its new meaning was Nothing But Crap

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

If you like the show, why not at least continue to watch the remaining episodes? I know I will continue to enjoy them while they last.

I hate watching a show that has no ending. It is like reading a book with the last chapter torn out.

Luckily, I had not watched any of the episodes and just had them on the DVR ready for me to watch. This is how we normally handle new shows.
1) Set up series pass
2) watch a couple of the shows
3) if we don't like the show, we delete all taped and series pass
4) If we like the show, we continue to watch and leave series pass permanent

In the case where shows get cancelled before we have had a chance to watch a couple of them, we feel that if they were bad enough to get cancelled, then there is no reason to waste our time watching them. We have plenty of other shows waiting on us.

This is one of those cop shows that doesn't need an 'ending' to be good. Each episode stands on its own pretty well. So I will keep it in my timers until it is gone.

I'm sorry to see this one go, it was developing nicely imo.

I agree that this show is still worth viewing while it lasts ,it is a shame this is 1 of 3 shows on NBC worth watching.I guess nothing has changed since Comcast took over just cosmetic changes same as their cable business .

It's a pretty decent show, in my opinion. Had it landed on another network it probably would have done quite well. Too bad....

So those that aren't watching it because the network canceled it are basically letting the networks decide what is worthy and what isn't. I've seen to many great shows get canceled; no way am I letting the networks decide.

Trh,

I guess I do not understand what you are trying to say. If the network cancels a show, aren't they the one deciding whether you watch it or not? I mean once the network DECIDES to cancel it, the show stops. There are no more new shows. Just because I think a thursday night show is wonderful does not mean I get a choice to watch it every thursday night if the Network DECIDES to cancel it.

I am sorry. I guess I am just confused.

NBC should consider bringing in a whole new "ER" crew and pick up where they left off with that show. If they're doing remakes anyway, why not remake something that helped them out for so many years.

Umm, No?

Why else would there be such a large market for TV shows on DVD?

And recorders in their various forms?

And the whole revival of classic TV shows on so many networks?


Why would one refuse to watch earlier episode of a series just because there are no new ones?

I really liked this show. I'm surprised its ratings were so low. The official announcement of its cancellation has come out. Shame, intelligent, well written, well cast, what more could you ask for in a show?

Your logic astounds me, but to each, his or her own as the case may be. If you choose to let others make your viewing decisions for you, so be it, but as stated previously, each epi of Prime Suspect stands alone and Maria Bello is certainly worth my time.

Sorry to see it go.

Hadn't watched any of them yet and too many other shows on the DVR. No need to invest my time in this one now. Delete.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
