I think Fox is ran by a bunch of Gen Xers with ADD and Riddlin scipts.

I was hoping that there'd be at least one more episodes and up until last night Drive was still listed in my EPG. Fox will never air the final episodes later in the summer. They said the samething about The Inside when it was axed and that never happened.

What never makes any sense to me is... when they cancel a show and don't go ahead and air the ones already produced. It's not like they are airing something new... I believe a repeat of House is now in the guide for tomorrow night... they will lose what audience they did have for Drive by waiting months to show the remaining completed episodes.

I've always wondered the samething. If the episodes are already made, why not make fans of the show semi happy and air the remaining episodes. Maybe Drive will be released on DVD, although only one of the 5 previous shows I watched that were canceled on Fox was released on DVD.

I happen to have liked Firefly and Tru Calling, both of which were prematurely cancelled on FOX and both had unaired episodes at the time of cancellation.

Those Firefly episodes aired years later on SciFi and again on UniversalHD... I'm not sure the final episode of Tru Calling has ever aired... but DVD releases were complete for both shows.

I just made a suggestion in another thread... wondering why FOX doesn't consider relocating some programming to their MyNetwork channel to boost ratings there.

Even if Drive's ratings were bad for FOX... they would be phenomenal compared to anything they are showing on MyNetwork. I know they have been trying to get programming on the cheap for MyNetwork, but in this case Drive has already been paid for by FOX... so if they used it to boost ratings on MyNetwork that has to be better than just letting those episodes sit idle.

Heck, I'd even go so far as to say they might consider being a "loss leader" and spring for a show like Drive to air on MyNetwork just to give that network something to hang its hat on... even if they lost a little on that show, it has to help the bottom line of MyNetwork out.

Just watched the first 4 hours a couple nights ago. Knowing it had already been cancelled, I was prepared to watch about :30 then free up the HDD space with no regrets. Despite a few "umm....ok" moments, it kept me in. My calendar is marked.

Wow I'm really surprised they're making good on their word. Thanks for the heads up, I guess I won't delete my Scheduled Recording for Drive yet.

The FOX Web site changed sometime over the last weekend to 7/13... next Friday for airing. Not a good night to reschedule in my opinion with all the other new things on that night... but hey, FOX didn't ask me before cancelling the show either!

Fox has pulled the planned airings of the last 2 filmed episodes of Drive from 7/13. Per TV Squad.com ...

I just spoke to a Fox spokesperson who confirms that they've been pulled (in favor of Bones and Standoff) and he doesn't have any explanation for the change. He also told me that the final two episodes of Drive have not been rescheduled at this point and he doesn't know if they ever will be.
