You interpreted incorrectly. In no way is that them saying that they will air every episode. That is them saying they've planned 15 episodes and feel hopeful that all will air. In NO WAY is that a guarantee.

Anyway, the overnight ratings rebounded nicely on 2/18:

1/21: 3.1
1/28: 3.3
2/04: 2.9
2/11: 2.4
2/18: 2.8

It was up 55% over Alcatraz the same week last year.


At this point, I feel comfortable we'll see all the episodes. As I noted in the ratings thread it appears that the demo audience is holding at about 85% of the premier and Fox simply doesn't care about the fact that the 50+ audience is down a third. It's demo last night was higher than "Bones."

I just don't see Fox cancelling this show even if episodes 9-12 are way down. An order for a second season will depend on how episodes 9-14 do, but I'm not worrying about that.

True, great show and I will keep watching but really starting to become unbelievable. And I guess we can kinda predict what will come with a transfer of Joe next week. :sure: But I am hooked so I can't stop watching.

Was a bit disappointed this week. There were just too many followers introduced this week, the wife follower, the local cop, the two guys who took on the swat uniforms. It made my mind stretch a little too much to believe.

Also escapes like "out the backdoor", "drive down roads that supposably were blocked", and "smoke bomb disappearance" were a bit too much.

Still enjoying it, just worried I will start getting annoyed soon.

It appears the show's writers have taken the "James Bond" approach by creating a super villain with unlimited resources, compromising the show's credibility. I'm quickly losing interest with this one.

Seems pretty cheap on the writers part to me if they can have anyone suddenly be part of Joe's plan.

Joe has way too many visitors in prison. Put him in solitary for a bit and see if the Followers lose their way. But then I suppose you wouldn't have much of a show.

I think the visitors you are seeing are from the past, sort of showing how he set it all up.

When he escaped in the beginning someone should have shot him and there would have been a whole lot of lost people across the country. :) But then the show would have never existed.

I think the turning point for me was the local cop being on team Joe. I get the feeling they wrote this show on the fly and didn't know how to get out of the situation. :D

I like the show, and will continue watching, even though I agree with you: without showing how many followers there are, the writers can just keep throwing new ones in for plot twists or as cannon fodder. This has a numbing effect, in that how can you invest in these throwaways?

I pegged her as a follower immediately the previous week. And from the reviews I've read, a lot of others pegged her too.

They don't have much of a show now, even with all the unbelievable stuff they are asking us to swallow whole.

She left Justified to be in this mess. It will not see a 16th ep, very likely (unless FOX is desperate and has nothing left in the cupboard to replace it next year), while Justified probably has 2 or 3 more years in it (maybe more if she had stuck around). But then she probably gets 3 times per ep what she was getting in Justified. I first saw her in Dirty Sexy Money; snapped my neck around; still hurts.

OK, I get that now. But it will not see a 4th episode where I live.

And that just points out the relative current level of flop sweat at FOX, rather than validates this as any sort of quality show.

Oh, so because you don't like it, then it's considered "flop sweat" and not quality? :rolleyes:
