It is totally unnecessary to repost the URL of the preceeding post by Paedr.
Well I liked this show and thought it had at least another season in it. Boy fox executives don't seem very bright.
cant believe fox canned this. one of the better shows out.
hmmm, time to start a "Bring Back John Scott" crusade over at the Fringe board!
Well this is the network who has allowed American Idol to go on so long so their taste is not so great.
too true zandarblade. how much reality tv can they produce.
Sad and this was only getting better
sign of the times folks the money is running out and less and less ppl are watching tv now it is all online. I watched to news last night and soap fans are going ape shit 2 major soaps have been cancelled and they are adding some more current event and talk shows, they are cheap as stone to produce
Crap! I was wondering what happened to this show; should've known it got cancelled. Hope they replace it with something better (as in, NO REALITY SHOWS, PUH-LEASE!!)!
I am disappointed HT was cancelled because it was getting good, but networks like profits. Sitcoms are expensive and reality show are super cheat. Brain dead people think this reality TV is real. Reality TV is just like Wrestling staged and fake. I detest "Reality TV"
@llast2blast I agree whole-heartedly. Reality tv is so far down on the intellectual food-chain it is the only thing that can make a politician seem smart!!
I still wish they hadn't cancelled this one.
yet another bad decision by the networks, without considering the syndication effect.
A lot of Overseas markets rely heavily on fluid shows (those that don't get chopped after 3 episodes) for there ratings ad income. So with the cancelling of Human Target it screws up a lot of the possibilities of overseas syndication to assist with the production costs and to keep these shows viable.
Its a pity that the studios just see the US market as the indicator for the rest of the world. This bugs me and I am sure those who are not in the US it would be bugging the hell out of you too.
That's enough from me before I start something bad :)
Bad Studio, Bad.. :) Stay safe all.
Check out my forum thread "Web Network" HT would be a perfect fit for my idea.
the family going to miss this very much. It's a good thing we have all the progs on disc.
We tried several times to watch the Human Target program however it was always pre-empted by something else on the network. If the viewers couldn't find the program how does the network expect the series to be a success. It's not fair to the actors or the viewers. I hope another network will pick up the program.
if they want to kill a show they will do everything they can to lower the ratings and then they can say, "see low ratings, its not our fault."
Networks need viewers so they can make money from advertising, this is a fact. To intentionally lower ratings would be counter productive and is the last thing on a networks mind. They would actually keep a crap show on air indefinatley if it generated enough viewers.
Fox or any other network don't need to prove a show is bad to cancel it. If they don't like a show, they will cancel it regardless or the viewers opinion.
I agree with you on scheduling. I watch tv online so I don't have to sit down at a particular time and even I get frustrated at the way networks schedule their shows. I can only imagine the frustration of fans who sit down, turn on and tune in to find that their favourate shows are nowhere to be seen. This definatley hurts a show and the soooner networks realise this the better.
The fact is, shows get "shuffled" around because the network is trying to generate viewers in that timeslot and that show (in their mind) is not doing enough.
You'll notice it will usually happen to a show on the end of its season as well. When the show's ratings are lower than at the beginning.
What it actually boils down to is, the network chose the wrong timeslot for it in the first place and are now trying to "fix" the problem or the network had higher expectations of the show than it could actually deliver.
If you think you have it bad in the US, you would actually pull your hair out living here in Australia. Where they buy the next big thing (read show) from the US, and due to timeslot or it just doesn't work with Aussie audiences, after its initial few episodes they'll start sliding up the time scale to 9.30pm, 10.30pm or even 11.30pm.
It is one of the major reasons why I just download all the shows I want to watch and don't give a rats about what the network want to show me.
Anyway, I ranting now, but I hope you get my initial point.
