Re: The One and Only TV FAQ Thread Plus Renewal and Cancellation News

Prison Break has been disappointing, IMO. It's half hokey and half ridiculous.

Quantico renewed for a third season even though no one is watching.
This one really makes no sense. If any show should have been a one and done, it was Quantico.

Re: The One and Only TV FAQ Thread Plus Renewal and Cancellation News

Some shows are renewed repeatedly just because a network executive loves it and doesn't really care about ratings for that slot. Going off rumors, a couple of CBS shows kept getting renewed because Les Moonves' wife loved watching them.

Back in the dark ages, Gilligan's Island was canceled because it was going to somehow interfere with Gunsmoke and the executive's wife didn't want it moved.

Re: The One and Only TV FAQ Thread Plus Renewal and Cancellation News

Supposedly Fox cancelled the drama Class of '96 because 90210 decided to graduate the high schoolers and put them in college, and Fox didn't want two college shows on at the same time. They were virtually nothing alike, but...

Based on my tastes I'm surprised Quantico was renewed too. I thought even Notorious was better, and probably Conviction, but Quantico possibly had better ratings.

This was from late last year. Unsurprising, all of these got renewed (Timeless was the only actual cancellation, temporary as it was.)

With the widespread decline in ratings, networks go after smaller and smaller demos.
