NBC is sharpening its axe

Two incredible shows are currently on the edge of cancellation, if reports are to be believed, and NBC seems to be saying that they won’t even air episodes that were already produced. In the face of a dearth of available programming due to the writer’s strike, this just seems to me to be one of the most boneheaded things I’ve ever heard. Even if you’re not particularly in favor of the show, if you’ve got nothing else to show, why not let it play out?! 

Neither of these shows have technically been canceled yet, but read on (and through the links) for more on each.

NBC gives Journeyman two weeks notice – From Inside the Box – Zap2it

Were hearing that the next two weeks are crucial for NBCs Journeyman. While nothing official has been decided, the rumor is that if the Nielsen numbers dont rise for the Nov. 19 and 26 episodes, the network will yank the show, without airing all the episodes produced.

Things could be looking bad for future of BSG

…there’s a real possiblility NBC Universal would just opt out of the final episodes of “Galactica.” With a declining ratings and higher production costs, to re-start a show for ten episodes to please what is percieved as a niche audience might not make sense to the network brass. The long hiatus for “Galactica” haven’t helped things since the show has gone off the general public’s radar screen.

For Journeyman, one of the best new shows this year, if not the best, it seems that if you know anyone who is a Nielsen family, you’ll need to break into their house at 10pm on Monday and force them to watch this show at gunpoint – because unless I misunderstand the ratings system, if you don’t have a box, you don’t count. Journeyman seems to have been hurt by the sagging ratings of Heroes this season. Given the promise to up the ante on that show, the apology from Tim Kring, and the way it played out the last two weeks, I gotta think that’s on the upswing, so it would, again, be a bonehead move to not give that established show the chance to bring bigger ratings in to help Journeyman.

For Battlestar Galactica…. their biggest mistake was imposing a year long hiatus to begin with. It’s just plain cruelty to put together such a quality show with a full, intelligent storyline, and then drop it in its advertised final season without coming to conclusion. BONEHEAD!
