I'm not surprised that The Event did poorly....against repeats.
I'm not sure why the network thought that giving it a break and then bringing it back would help the show in its ratings.
I was more pumped about Stargate Universe returning with new eps!!


Hmmm.... Yeah...Thinking makes my brain hurt ;)

I believe they tried to 'retool' The Event.

Whatever. After cutting the episode order for The Cape I hope TE crashes and burns.

It was just 3 more episodes man. ;_;

SGU also got cancelled after two seasons so I don't know whats going on.

I expected it to last for at least 5 seasons just like its predecessors.


Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny!
Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!

Exactly, episode 10. I will laugh big time too when The Event will have sub 1.0 ratings.

The Cape is gone and "The Event" is back in its original timeslot; i thought it would be interesting to see what are the ratings for the second week of The Event.
Remember The Event pulled an awful 1.4 in 18-49 demo and 5.23 millions viewers for its return.

Yesterday's ratings were even worse, as expected :
The Event fell 14% vs. its unimpressive return last week to a season low 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and lost 1 millions viewers aka 4.2 millions viewers.

Just like previous week, CBS (and CW) competitors were Repeats; if not, the ratings would probably be under 1.0 by now. Don't worry, it's scheduled for next week.

That is almost the same numbers as the Cape, the decision to cut the order for the Cape was maybe not the most beneficial one as that just anger the viewers.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has published an interesting article for those who wonders why a show is cancelled or not, besides the ratings. Several Networks Executives are interviewed, including Gail Berman (Fox Entertainment president from 2000-05, when Firefly was cancelled, and producer on The Cape).

Here is what she says :

Quote
Ms. Berman suggested several factors that can play into a show's cancellation:

• A piece of talent is uncontrollable (see: "Two and a Half Men").

• The show is not coming together in a way that's creatively satisfying for the network (translation: the show stinks and doesn't show signs of improving).

• Advertisers can't embrace a show (see: the uproar over teen sexuality content on MTV's "Skins," which has not yet been renewed or canceled).

• If a series is underperforming in a particular time period, executives will gamble that a bright, shiny new series will draw better ratings than a program that hasn't done well and may be seen as damaged goods.

• Networks are right now producing new pilots for fall and will look at how those turn out. If they see more potential for a new series, an existing, middling-rated show may be sacrificed in favor of a new program. "Sometimes you've got to make room for something you feel is going to do better," Ms. Berman said.

• And then there's the issue of personal taste, which can lead to cancellation if "your boss hates the show," she said.

Interesting points Michelangelo...esp the one about the "Boss" hating the show.
No Ordinary Family is prob gone....seems the two lead actors are signed on for new stuff in the fall.

Can you post a link to the full article??


Hmmm.... Yeah...Thinking makes my brain hurt ;)

The link is already at the end of my post.

What is scary is the fact that a new show must find its audience right from the start; if not, no back nine or full season for it because the networks prefer to launch a new show.

Not yet but she said in an interview that she was working on something, but could not talk about it.

This is SpoilerTV Cancellation Predictor table. Last updated 20 April.

This index is by no means a 100% accurate guide about if your show is safe or in danger and should be seen as a bit of FUN.

The last messages have been moved to the New TV Pilot for Fall 2011 where you can discuss new pilots but also renewal or cancellation of existing shows.

I have erased all "The Cape" fansite from my bookmarks; the show is dead and so are the sites dedicated to it. The show flopped on NBC and did not managed to create a solid fanbase.
Yet we can continue to debate the show on this forum; this is the advantage on beeing on the Summer Glau Wiki.
