ABC can’t claim any real winners with their new shows this season. The Neighbors, that unbelievable silly “aliens in the suburbs” sitcom, seems to be their only remotely successful show. The fact that it’s sandwiched between The Middle and Modern Family, might have something to do with that. I had such high hopes for 666 Park Avenue, didn’t you? I mean Lost‘s Terry O’Quinn as the Devil, what more could you ask for?
A lot more, I’m afraid. There just wasn’t enough “devil” in John Locke. After the success of FX’s American Horror Story, viewers (me), expected more than what ABC gave us with this misguided endeavor. Vanessa Williams is no Jessica Lange! People stopped watching and ABC canceled it. They also canceled the renegade submarine drama Last Resort at the same time. They promised viewers that both shows would have satisfactory conclusions in their finales. Isn’t that nice! While they were at it, they finally took Private Practice off life support. I thought that show was gone two seasons ago! For now, Nashville and Scandal are safe, but the sitcoms, Don’t Trust the B* in Apt. 23 and Happy Endings could be gone come New Years. (**UPDATE** ABC decided NOT to air anymore episodes of 666 Park Avenue, but instead replace it with episodes of Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B* in Apt. 23 at 10 and 10:30pm on Sunday nights.)
The Seth Meyers’ network isn’t too worried about everyone else. They usually just throw something out there and if it doesn’t work, they throw something else at us. FOX gave us two new sitcoms to sandwich in between Raising Hope and New Girl, both of which are not big hits. Even with the help of these two shows, Ben and Kate and The Mindy Project suck enough that they’ll probably get dumped. The only show FOX has canceled is their medical drama, The Mob Doctor.
I never watched this show, but just looking for a picture of it, I noticed that there were at least four, maybe six, of these “mob doctors”. Made me wonder if one of these doctors gets knocked off each week. Now why would that get canceled? The only other show leaving is Fringe, which will air it’s 100th episode AND it’s season finale with back to back episodes at 8pm ET on Fri. Jan. 18. **SPOILERS** predict that Walter, or Pete, are the “enemy of fate” and have manipulated the past by using the bridge on Liberty Island to cross between the two universes. The producers promise an action-packed finale at least!
ARROW is the #1 new show on the CW network. Do I need to say anymore?
