Well, in my defense, other than a guest star role and Parks and Rec I am not sure I have seem Samburg in anything before this.

Of course I am not really defending B99 either as it was just ok in my book and probably won't earn a season pass.

I'm _not_ defending it.. I don't think it was quite HORRIBLE like others are saying, but it wasn't very good. Ironically (not sure if that really qualifies) about the only things that were funny were the jokes everyone was up in arms about. The rest was junk.

I hope Seth Green is cashing a big big big paycheck. He seems to generally be a hard worker and a smart guy. Why would he do this besides a paycheck? (He was also in the so-bad-it-was-funny-but-probably-only-because-I-saw-it-at-a-free-screening-early-in-the-morning "Old Dogs" too.)

BTW, I will still give it another ep or two, BECAUSE of Seth Green. I'm again trying to 'pare down' the new shows I watch though, so I'll probably give it a shorter tryout than usual, unless some other die quickly too.

There were somethings that just annoyed me big time with that show. One was the continuity of some things (which I won't get into here...not a spoiler thread), and the other...the laugh track was just obnoxiously loud and misplaced.

I'll spoilerize

Spoiler:
I got the impression that the two main characters were best friends and maybe since they were kids. Then they go through this whole "compare our dads thing". Well wouldn't best friends already KNOW these things about each others fathers? Second the fathers get together like best friends, but I never got the impression, in the way the main characters talked about them that they even knew each other. It was all very weird and didn't make a whole lof ot sense to me.

I didn't think anything could beat out 'Dads' for the worst new show but "The Goldbergs" managed to do so handily.

I couldn't even finish watching the pilot.

Dads and Moms both gone.

I watched a little of The Goldbergs when they had the pilot on abc.com. Maybe the family struck home somewhat, but I liked the first 10 minutes I saw. But I think I'll probably be in the minority.

No way Mom is one of the first to go. I have a feeling CBS will do anything to keep Chuck Lorre happy. They'll cut his show more slack than others.

But I am biased as I really enjoyed the show.

Based on ratings thus far, Lucky 7 is an initial contender. It premiered to a 1.3 and if it drops below a 1.0 next week it could be gone shortly thereafter.

Dads gone of my list.
Got halfway through the first episode and just couldn't continue watching.
I guess I'm just getting too old for that kind of comedy?
Brooklyn 99 is close, but I'm going to give it a couple more episodes just because of Braugher.
I have no idea who any of the other actors are.

Had high hopes with Seth and Martin, but I guess they're just better in small doses as guest stars.
Same with Mr. Ribisi, guest star roles only please.

Saw Mom in bits and pieces while I was airing it, but haven't sat down and watched.
Really hard to watch TV when you are trying to keep it on the air.

Is this thread supposed to be about the first show that gets canceled by a network or the first show that you delete from your season pass list? I thought it was supposed to be the former but it seems like it's more of the latter.

With that rating it is very likely. I watched the premiere and while I did not hate it I did not think it was very good. Based on the previews of what is to come this season it did not look like it was taking path I wanted to follow.

If I stop watching a show, doesn't it cease to exist?

It starts out as predictions on what gets whacked first. Based on our amazing TCF prognosticating ability. Then it turns into "I watched xxx and can't believe it will survive long". And as we individually start killing SPs, we throw those into the mix.

Actually, for a TCF TV thread (any TCF thread, really), this particular one has stayed truer to topic than most.

If you stop watching and yet continue to read & participate in the threads (a la Under The Dumb), is it dead, alive or in Purgatory?

Lucky 7 gets my vote. Worst-rated fall drama pilot in ABC history. And what a dramatic dropoff from the ratings at the beginning of the night (4.6) to the end of the night (1.3). Those comedies in between sure didn't do their job of holding the lead in.

Back in the Game probably won't last the season, but I really want Dads to go first.

Not even going to try The Millers.

Did you ever watch "Stranger than Fiction" or "Everything Must Go" ? Ferrell may choose to do (usually hilarious) slapstick comedy but he can do drama as well.

Based on the less than enthusiastic reviews and its impending likelihood of cancellation, I think I'll pass.

it should be about which show gets cancelled by a network first
that makes a lot more sense than "first show I stop watching"

Meanwhile, I don't watch comedies (because they aren't funny) and based on your comments I continue to miss out on absolutely nothing.

Didn't love it, very much below the other Chuck Lorre shows... yes, including 2.5 men. (and he didn't do a title card at the end? Though I admit I haven't been pausing & reading those regularly for a long time, and yes I know they're on the web... and yes, I was one of those who used to pause the _VCR_ for them.)

I still don't know if I've seen Anna Faris *in* much of anything. I checked out her imdb listing, and sure I've seen a bunch (esp her 5 episodes of "Friends"), but I think I recognize her just because she's a celebrity, not from anything she's actually done.

Maybe being a fan of the NY sports franchises has just sucked all of the humor out of you.
