    This makes me so upset. I haven't even watched the second season yet. I assume that it's worth watching right?

    Maybe some other network will pick it up. All these great programs always get cancelled after one or two seasons:

    Sports Night
    Freaks and Geeks
    Hello, Larry ;)

    I know of others, I just can't recall them all now.

    Of course. Because we just started Season One last week and are about 5 eps in.

    Ugh.

    TNT has nobody to blame for this but themselves.

    Excellently written, very unique show, they are solely to blame for not finding an audience for this show. Shame on them for being so incompetent.

    That is what drives me nuts about TV execs, they reward and punish themselves back asswards.

    Someone should be fired for not making this show successful. Instead someone will get fired down the line for having 5 shows not succeed, some of which should not have been on the air in the first place.

    It is like the people who run tv networks can not even properly assess what a good show is and what a good show isn't. If you are a tv executive and can't sell a show you know is good, what are you doing?

    I thought this was basic cable, where you give a show time to develop an audience.

    Burn In Hell TNT!

    Maybe DirecTV will step up, the way they did for Friday Night Lights. This would be a good show for their Audience Network (aka The 101).

    Exactly. If they had scheduled the show better, then maybe more people would have tuned in. I had to use Futon Critic to find out when the 2nd half of the 2nd season would start up again (because I never once saw a promo).

    Meanwhile, Chuck producers are licking their chops into finally bringing that show to a complete and final close at the end of this year.

    I absolutely love this show, but let's be real guys. This isn't an easy sell of a show to audiences. I can't think of another show like it.

    Not a whole lot "happens" every week. And the show's leads are middle-aged men who, for all intents and purposes, just sit around talking and eating for 45 mins each episode.

    I'm obviously generalizing, but I'm just trying to say that, for the average Joe who sees a commercial for MoaCA, this might be the conclusion they come to.

    I'm hoping this gets picked up by another network.
