    Yeah, when you don't control the process, you just sorta have to speculate on what will still be there next week. We both have Elementary on our "Keepers" list, so maybe it'll have a chance. But, as you say, it also "...has a good chance of being cancelled".

    "Elementary" had decent ratings... so it stands a good chance. I like JLM (still think it's funny he was married to Angelina Jolie), so that's good. It was a lot better than I expected.

    "Made In Jersey" will most likely be cancelled shortly. The dialogue needed a lot of work, but I thought it had a LOT of charm. Sadly, a lot of the dialogue that needed work was used in the commercials, so that probably turned a lot of people off...

    Wow, learn something new every day - didn't realize Jonny was connected to Angelina!

    I haven't watched "...Jersey" ... something about the name of it sorta makes me cringe.

    Like most folks here, I'm a bit jaded with all the network hype about their line-ups. History has a way of repeatedly proving them all collectively wrong. My defense mechanism (admitedly, with some Elementary exceptions) is to avoid them until the 2nd or 3rd season - once all the hoopla settles down and I see how they're really doing.

    I'm sometimes tempted to take peek at on or two of them (Go On, Last Resort), but that usually ends badly.

    Angelina couldn't turn him down after that.

    Mob Doctor didn't even make it to my DVR, so I second this one.

    Looking forward to the Arrow on 10/10.
    The CW sure could use a hit.

    I think I was one of those you said you couldn't understand the 5 minutes in and decide. :)

    How does it feel to have wasted the extra 25 minutes watching the whole thing? :lol:

    Life is to short to watch a dud. Not to mention I don't enough time to watch all the new shows If I give a loser of a show longer than it deserves.

    You have to wonder who picked that bomb and why.

    Some other losers Animal Hospital, I watched 5 minutes of that turkey.
    666 Park Avenue, I watched the whole thing, won't watch another episode however.


    Cheers

    I think Last Resort would do better in a later time slot... maybe following Grey's Anatomy instead of in front of it...

    but time will tell, and I hope that they do NOT cancel it..

    At least I can say I gave it a fair shot. :)

    I think someone at FOX thought she could write since she writes some stuff for The Office (US). She's one of the reasons I didn't like The Office (US).

    I hope they don't either. I liked the Last Resort pilot better than the LOST pilot and LOST went on to be my favorite show of all time.

    I suffered through the whole thing just to see more of that monkey. She deserves her own show, IMHO. :p

    I have to agree, if any show is going to cancelled because of ratings it's this one.

    CW could use a hit? Or do you mean a show YOU would want to watch?

    Just to name a few, not like they are CBS and are turning out high quality shows they are a small network after all but still

    Vampire Diaries.........Nikita......Supernatural

    I can understand Go On and Revolution getting the full season order, but the New Normal certainly doesn't deserve it imo.

    I'm not normally the touchy guy, but The New Normal (the mom at least) is so horribly over the top offensive that I can't believe the show's still on the air.

    While those may be quality shows, their overall ratings are fairly low. The CW is now barely an asterisk on the ratings charts. Here are last season's ratings for those three shows:

    Vampire Diaries #139 of 195 shows, 1.30 rating in the demo (CW's highest ranking show)
    Supernatural #167 of 195 shows, 0.89 rating in the demo
    Nikita #184, 0.61

    I think that the CW would get more viewers if it was in HD in more markets. It is only SD here.
