"The Nine" down to zero

ABC gave it a pretty good shot, but the serialized drama "The Nine" never caught on, despite a plum time slot after "Lost."

I always wanted to like "The Nine" more than I did. Great cast, led by Tim Daly, and pretty good writing, but the premise - the survivors of a botched bank heist form a lasting bond while the events of the robbery are slowly unveiled - always felt pretty thin to build a series around.

I fear this will mean bad things for "Day Break," the Taye Diggs serialized drama that replaced "Lost" for a couple months. I really like "Day Break," and its "Groundhog's Day" gone bad premise is killer, but what's ABC going to put on after it ("20/20" reruns for now) and are audiences willing to buy into the premise?

Finally caught up with Day Break and the wife and I really enjoy it. Diggs is a good action star. the only burning question we have is... HOW the heck does he keep reliving the day over? At first I thought it was the shot the guy in the pit gave him, but that was nixed when they didn't give it him on what, the 3rd or 4th "day"?

I really hope they have at least a somewhat plausible (as if any of it could actually happen) explanation when they reveal the cause behind it all. So far really good though!

Well, if the show is successful, maybe that's a question they'll never have to answer!
