Dead Pool still alive?

Tim Goodman over at the San Francisco Chronicle argues that the Dead Pool (to name the first new fall show to be canceled) is still alive and kicking:

"For all of those people who had "Online Nation" in the dead pool, sit yourselves back down. First, yes, it's been canceled. (For those of you with lives, it was an unscripted series on the CW.) We don't care - about the cancellation, nor the fact that 98 percent of the country hasn't heard of "Online Nation" and 68 percent can't find the CW on a balloon map of the five networks. (It's the green one.) Anyway, we count only scripted series as actually being in the game, hence Fox killing off "Nashville" didn't count, either. When a network cancels a scripted series - "Big Shots," watch your back - we will tell you about it. Nobody cares about "Online Nation."

My take: While obviously nobody cares about "Online Nation," I've accepted "Nashville" as the fall's first cancellation. Just the way it is. I'm perfectly willing to keep a death watch on, however, for the first scripted series to get the axe. Because: A) It's fun. And B) That one really is a crapshoot. "Big Shots"? "Cavemen"? "Moonlight"? One of the CW comedies? Your guess is as good as mine.

Other shows other than the above three.

Life is Wild-The CW

Viva Laughlin-CBS

Funny thing is Laughlin is not as bad as people make it out as is.

I got a huge kick out of it when CBS stopped promoting "Laughlin" as a musical and started promoting it as a murder mystery. Anyone who didn't catch the earlier previews probably got a beeeeg surprised when they tuned in.
