Not surprising at all.

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

I'm not too surprised. I couldn't even make it through the pilot. I would never have watched a series.

I thought the pilot had potential, but there were lots of problems with the script. NBC probably wanted a mindless comedy, while the producers wanted something much darker.

Re-brand it as "Housewives of Mockingbird Lane", pitch it to Bravo, and it will be a big hit with all the "Housewives" viewers who don't have a life... and the other "no brains... no headaches" zombies, who sort of have a social, if not organic, one.
