Luckily I won't have to decide whether to watch it or not, because this has cancelled written all over it.

"Lost" began its season at 9 p.m. with a 13.7/20 -- among the show's best ratings ever. NBC stayed in second, barely, with the premiere of "E-Ring," 6.3/9, edging out a repeat of last season's "CSI" finale. "Top Model" moved into fourth with a 3.4/5 in its second hour. FOX's "Head Cases" did a faceplant in its second week, coming in at a meager 2.3/3. The WB re-aired the "Just Legal" premiere.
Yeah, coming in a full rating point under a UPN show (even one of their hits) is never a good sign.

Unfortunately, the Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT timeslot has gotten crowded (Las Vegas, 2.5 Men, Prison Break), so moving Everwood back wouldn't be all that good for my recording plate, but Everwood is going to get crushed by CSI on Thursday nights.

wow.. I know tv is a biz but I'm still shocked when shows get canned THIS fast, even on fox.. I mean it's not like the show was even given a chance, at all.. Oh well..

guess I lost the "first show to get canned" contest in that other thread here, being I was sure it was bones!! At least I got that fox would be the first network to can a show but that's not really a shock... we all know fox looooooooves to get rid of shows on the quick..

Well, this is fine by me. I watched the first episode, and wasn't impressed. I didn't even bother with the second.

Damn, this sucks. The second episode was much better, and Adam Goldberg was fantastic. I'm probably the only person in the World upset about this .

So does anyone know what they will air instead?

There were 6 dramas competing in this timeslot, I am thinking a reality show or comedies would probably fare better.

Wow, Fox has already taken this off their list of shows on the website.

Looks like next week they are showing Nanny 911.

Rewind (ZERO episodes). I remember watching the promos and they didn't show any clips from the show.
Lawless (1 episode)
Head Cases (2 episodes)
Ryan Caulfield: Year One (2 episodes)
Skin (3 episodes)
Harsh Realm (3 episodes)
and about 100 others.

Beginning in a couple weeks, Trading Spouses will be taking over Head Cases' slot.

I'm watching the second episode right now. I don't get the hate, and am disappointed they only gave it two episodes.

I actually have the answer for that!

Lawless, starring Brian Bosworth and Glenn Plummer.

I honestly don't know what Fox was expecting, putting it up against Lost, E-Ring, etc. It says 6 eps have been completed, maybe they will go ahead and release them on dvd, who knows.
