The Network Axes Fall Again ...

Three new casualties of the fall season have come to pass ...


I had saved the first six episodes of this devlish series starring Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams and finally buckled down to watch them recently.  It's a decent show, not necessarily "must-see" TV, but entertaining enough.  But alas, it is not meant to continue.  ABC will let it play out the 13-episode run, then Satan's posh playground will fade away.


I had anticipated watching this series starring Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman but was unable to because of a crowded Thursday 8 p.m. time slot.  Kind of glad now that I didn't get committed cause it always hurts to have a show taken away so early on.  It's a shame ... I have heard that it's a strong show creatively.  It too will play out it's initial 13-episode run.  Upside?  I'm hoping Autumn Reeser will come back to Hawaii Five-0  in a more frequent capacity.

This is one series (starring Michael Urie and David Krumholtz) I'm actually not sorry to see go.  I watched the pilot and just had no love for it.  Gave it one more try but, no.  I'm never happy to see actors lose work, but this show just wasn't funny.  A very poor Will & Grace redux (same creators).

Still plenty more on, so keep watching!


  1. Re: 666 Park Avenue - I had watched the first episode and thought it was decent but not great. I had a feeling that it wouldn't last, though, and so didn't bother getting involved with it. I decided that if it survived, THEN I would go back and watch the first season.

    Re: Last Resort - I never even HEARD of this show. Perhaps that's why nobody was watching?

    Re: Partners - As a married straight male whose best friend is a homosexual man in his own committed relationship, I really wanted to like this show, but I just couldn't identify with any of the characters. I can't say I'm surprised that it got the axe.


  2. I didn't even know Michael Urie was back on television! What channel was Partners on?

    Since I don't watch any of them (though I meant to check out 666), can't say as I'm boo-hooing yet. Now, if they axe The Neighbors I'll be grumpy. It keeps getting better each week, I flat out guffaw at least once per show and the cast is enormously talented (and who doesn't love Jamie Gertz?). *fingers crossed*

  3. I watched 666 enough to get hooked but not quite must watch every week. I am two shows behind right now. I like where the storyline is going and hope they end the series well.

    Partners seems very forced and overacted. Except for Wyatt (Brandon Routh).
