Let's open the Dead Pool... wait, too late!


I hadn't even gotten around to predicting which new fall show would be the first in the cancellation bin, and here it is already. Fox pulled the plug on its reality docu-soap "Nashville" after two airings. Brutal.

Still, if anybody wants to go ahead and predict the next show to get cancelled, I'm taking bets.

With it being only midway into the first week of the new season (really, since MOST things start this week)... hard to say at this point. Taking a wild guess... "Moonlight." As much as I like supernatural stuff, I have ZERO interest in this show.

What did you think of "Back to You" with Heaton and Grammer? We thought it was hilarious. Tried watching "'Till Death" and as much as I like Garret and Fisher, this show reeks. Can't believe it was renewed.

We're also big Chef Ramsey fans, but this new gig - "Kitchen Nightmares" - isn't all that good. It's kinda like Nanny 911 and those shows. The only reason the wife and I keep watching it is to glean ideas (and learn things to avoid) for our future sports bar/taphouse/brewery/restaurant.

'Till Death' would have been canceled if FOX did not air after an 'American Idol' during the Spring.

Placing bets: Too early to say but I think Moonlight may be next since we have similer shows before (Forever Knight, Angel) and that might be an auto rejection. Also might be heading off early is 'Viva Laughlin.'

I liked "Back to You." It's by-the-book, but the performances are sharp and the writing is pretty good. It seems like it would be a better fit on CBS, but what the hey. I won't kill myself to watch it, but I think it's a quality sitcom.

Back to you was too forced, I hope it survives.
My hope for a quick cancellation is the Dr. Steve O series next week on USA. Was the country show on Fox any good? Never had a chance to watch it.

Thanks to my craptastic new Comcast DVR (the one that is far inferior and cheaper then the Moxi box Adelphi used) although I saw it recording, Back to You in fact did not record. I hate Comcast and I hate the POS DVR's they're forcing on us. Not only that, but our service has plummeted since they took over. FREQUENT drop outs (that last hours), and at least 3 times a day my cable modem just drops out on me. Sure, it comes right back up, but it disconnects me completely from the Internet. And while playing a fave MMO, that means a certain virtual death. Literally. I'm switching to DirecTV in the next few weeks. I'm done with this crapola.

Becasue of my DVR problems I wasn't able to see this weeks "Back to You." Hopefully they'll reply it.

I did see the premier of "Bionic Woman." As much as I love Battlestar Galactica (at least 2 of the producers from that show are on this show, thus the reason why so many BSG actors - 3 in the first episode - are in BW)... I found it lacking for some reason. Not sure what. It just didn't wow me. I do not like the actress playing Jamie Sommers for one. I'll give it a few more episodes because it has potential. Plus, I like Ferrer. Anyone else have thoughts?

I agree that its a quality sitcom and CBS would be the better fit but their are some themes that are right at home in a FOX sitcom.

With that said I don't like that fact that it was Grammer's charcther father a child with Heaton's charcther right off the bat. That should have been saved for a later episode. That being in pilot runned it for me.

Don't get me wrong Grammer and Heaton are a pair, but the supporting cast do nothing for me.

Who knows like 'How I Met Your Mother' maybe 'Back To You' can weather its pilot bombshell. Don't forget that in Mother Ted will marry Robin's sister who ever she is, and they are promising that she will be known in the third season...make it fast guys Mother is truly runing on barrowed time.

Its does not hold the weight of 'Friends' nor the current sitcom champ 'Two and a Half Men.'

And sadly so is 'Prison Break.' 'Dancing With the Stars' could kill them both.
