    Fox has canceled DRIVE. It is no longer in my guide data.

    FOX s*cks. I think they like messing with producer Tim Minear's head, like Lucy and the football.

    from what i understand two more episodes will be aired this summer, but after that i guess it is canned. I was really starting to like this show too! Did it seem like it was a really short pilot for it? 3 or 4 episodes is enough for Fox to determine a large enough fan base will not form?

    This really sucks. With all the crap on TV a new show with some potential comes along and a bunch of moron execs put "House" reruns on instead of giving us the two episodes already finished? This country is longing and begging for some decent programming (I am so tired of "reality" I could puke) but it takes a little time for the water cooler crowd to talk up a new show and get a fan base started.

    Thanks FOX, I had the first four on my TIVO for today's viewing.

    Guess what, now they are deleted....wonderful, why watch something that will never be finished.

    Got to love the new American TV programming trend, put a show on and then cancel it and never finish a story. Another reason to love TIVO, I learned long ago to record some eps of a new show and see if it will last, if not, I don't WASTE my time watching it.

    DRIVE did seem like it would have been worth watching, guess I'll wait for a DVD release with all the un-air eps....

    Thank you Timur. Such a positive, uplifting post. And enlightening too! Living in Austin obviously hasn't helped your outlook in life. :thumbsdown:

    I too had the first few episodes on my TiVo. Was waiting for the summer doldrums to watch 'em. Just turned them back into random electrons.

    Really, what are you expecting from FOX? If it's not a hit in 1.3 episodes, it's out.

    I'm really getting sick of FOX canceling shows so quickly... I was just promoting "Drive" to friends and family as a really cool show to start watching then FOX does this... Ugh...

    I've recorded everything that aired but never got around to watching any of it. I'm glad I haven't invested any time in this show yet. Makes it a lot easier to delete and move on.

    The order was for 13 episodes. Only six had been filmed when the axe fell.

    It's pretty bad when the show hasn't even revealed all the spoilers from the opening credits to the show (before it gets cancelled).

    Thankfully, I have watched them all, more or less live. It was a good show and interesting but the premise was so strange and seemingly dumb that I can see it not attracting an audience. Also having two episodes on Sunday was not a good move, they should have just started it on Monday with an hour episode.

    As with all of Fox's new shows, I use the stow-and-go approach. I don't even start watching until the show hits the 6th episode and Fox appears to have a commitment to the series. But you see, unfortunately it's a business about eyeballs not quality and if they suckered you in for a few hours then they sold that ad revenue...and that's all that matters to NewsCorp/Murdock...and how long before the "complete first season" is available on DVD (or pay-per-download on YouTube.)

    Reel 'em in.

    I hear that Prison Break is good, but now I can't be bothered to start from the beginning...I think I'm down to watching just '24' on our affiliate.

    I just laughed and laughed and laughed when my wife started (and liked) 'The Wedding Bells.' Another 'told you so' under my belt.

    Yep... this sucks. While the plot may not have appealed to "everyone" the fact is that not every show has to have a huge appeal to become popular within a certain viewing demographic.

    On top of that, I thought it was great that Fox put the episodes online - with out ads- and I was able to watch them while on the road.

    Bad move, Fox... bad move.
