Mob Doctor is my first choice.

Does Guys With Kids come with a bit more immunity because it's a Jimmy Fallon production?
I don't see Lorne Michaels name on the production credits but considering that he's involved with Failon's late night show, does Guys With Kids get Michaels' protection as well?

I also voted for The Mob Doctor. Only because it's already had two poorly rated episodes while most of the others in this list have only had one.

Also, NBC has stated that it's their goal to launch some broader comedies, so I don't think they're going to give up on their new sitcoms quite so easily. Animal Practice and Guys with Kids will be canceled soon, no question, but I think it will be a couple weeks.

I went with Animal Practice. That show is the definition of tanked, from a 4.1 to a 1.4 in two episodes.

Is there a way to amend the poll to include network? I know what network some of them are on, but I'm too lazy to look up the rest. And network can play a big role - NBC, for instance, sticks with stuff longer these days because they have no choice.

My vote, as stated in the show thread, is Partners.

CBS has plenty of backup 1/2 hour comedies to drop into it's slot.

Unlike Revolution, it won't be a huge loss to not air any episodes that are already in the can.

Of all the choices, I've only seen Partners, Revolution and Last Resort.

My 2nd choice would be Revolution, but that seems to have cost a bit more to get whatever episodes they have in the can, so they need to air a few more to get at least some of their money back.

Last Resort, I enjoyed, but being that Shawn Ryan hasn't had great luck lately (Terriers and Chicago Code), who knows.
And again, ABC must have payed a pretty penny for whatever episodes they bought.

I added the networks to the list in the OP, but I didn't see any way to amend the entries in the poll.

That's fine. I'm not so lazy that I can't look at the OP and then vote in the poll right above it.

I voted for Partners.

My thinking is that CBS is the king of the hill these days, and they start up less new shows each year because of that. They are bound to have another half-hour sitcom waiting in the wings in case one of the new shows performs poorly. I believe last year they yanked one of the new sitcoms after 1 or 2 eps, right?

The only other viable option to me was Mob Doctor. Fox also has a pretty quick trigger finger, and IIRC the opening ratings for Mob Doctor weren't pretty.

NBC and ABC are bringing up the rear, and as such tend to have more patience with new shows because they are trying re-establish their brand. Especially NBC, which has openly stated that they are trying to put out broader (i.e. stupider) comedies. So unless one of those shows goes down in flames and pulls an LA Complex type number, I don't see them cancelling it first.

Guys with kids would be my overwhelming choice. After that, I would guess whichever one hour drama show that costs the most to produce with bad ratings.

Did the people who voted for Last Resort actually watch it? It was really pretty good.......of course that has nothing to do with whether or not it will be canceled.

Any votes for Last Resort have nothing to do with the quality of the show and everything to do with its brutal time slot. ABC hasn't had any success on Thursday at 8:00 for years. Going against Big Bang Theory and The X Factor means there just aren't many eyeballs left for ABC, no matter what they put there.

I haven't seen most of these yet. Going to check out Animal Practice today, just because the latest promo with Bobby Lee cracked me up.

But I have to say that the 7 minutes I spent trying to watch 'Guys with Kids' was the worst 7 minutes I've had in a very long time.

I've seen shows that seemed like they might not be good but I had an inkling to hang in there for a while. Not so with GWK. That was torturously bad. Fastest SP I ever deleted.

If you haven't watched Last Resort, WATCH IT!

Yes, it may be in a brutal time slot, but that is why we have TiVo's! Show starts slow, but once the action starts, it doesn't stop. Can't wait for next week's episode.

I didn't even know what night it was on. I am pretty much ignorant of those things.

As the future president of ABC, perhaps that's something you should pay attention to. Time slots have as much (or more) to do with cancellations as show quality.

I would have voted for Animal Practice but I enjoyed the second episode. I voted for Mob Doctor. I would need three tuners to catch it. It is up against better shows.

Which is a huge problem. It doesn't make any sense anymore.

Watch as the ratings for Revolution fall off a cliff after the next 2 episodes. They'll lose the nerd/Sci Fi audience in no time and then even Joe Six pack is going to lose patience with the stupidity.

I'm that audience and still working up the courage to watch episode 2.

That said, Vegas is my bet to go...look at the negativity in the thread here.

I voted for Partners because it's the worst thing I've seen so far. I'm not considering ratings or cost/episode though.

I wasn't impressed with episode 2 at all.

It's a shame that Partners is getting bad reviews. I enjoy Michael Urie.

I know, and that is my fear. I hope that at least they develop some sort of small cult following, like Fringe or Community and that they have enough faith in the show to try it in another timeslot. Plus it doesn't "feel" like an 8 o'clock (eastern/western) type show. More suitable for 9PM or later.

I'm betting pretty much all the listed shows won't make it past the one year mark. A couple MAY get to season two, like MAYBE Revolution, but that's about it.

The nerd audience is pretty small for any show so I am sure it will survive.

I haven't watched Partners yet. I guess I should so I can delete the SP if it is bad.

I voted Guys with Kids only because I watched about 30 seconds of it. Those first 30 seconds gave me enough of a glimpse to know the show is awful.

The other current top votes in the poll, I don't know anything about.

I can watch Guys with Kids. I couldn't get through partners at all.

I'm hoping it's not Neighbors. I like that one.
