    There is so much bad TV out there people are doing other things.

    There is also a lot more channels and access to shows available at any given time (Hulu, Netflix). that people are probably watching other things.

    I watched the first four or so episodes and enjoyed it, but it wasn't 'must watch' TV for me. I found I always had other recorded stuff I wanted to watch first, so the show's episodes just started backlogging on my Tivo. I eventually deleted the SP a few weeks ago and deleted the unwatched shows in an attempt to cut back on my TV watching.

    I'll keep watching. I assume the Reynolds fight will be the last episode so as long as they show how that ends, I'll be happy.

    I hate this logic, and I see it so much on this board. If you choose to record something, then you were obviously interested enough to watch it. Why not watch an episode or two yourself and decide if it's worth watching? Just because a show only gets a 13-episode run doesn't mean it's not a good show or doesn't have a decent narrative that can be fully wrapped up.

    I like this show a lot but I'm not unhappy that it's a one season show. Some shows should only last a season. I think this is one of them.

    well it's a combination of I haven't seen a SINGLE episode, so it it worth watching the season.
    And some shows the first season really isn't that great and builds up in later seasons, so with just 1 season it may not be worth it. I may watch it eventually, but who knows.

    Simmons suggested that the series is what Rocky V should have been, and when you add in the lead up and training to the fight in Rocky Balboa it could be considered to be the last 2 movies. After watching all but the last episode I'd say the comparison is accurate. So if you're a Rocky fan I'd highly recommend it.

    It's a very good show. You should watch it even though it's been canceled.

    Aw bummer. I hope they at least wrap things up and don't leave any storylines hanging.

    I think the show is decent and had the potential to be really good. A few bad actors and a few questionable plot lines made it a tad corny/stupid for me. Still better than 90% of network shows, etc... But I can totally see why they cancelled it. I agree they should have kept Terriers.

    I lost interest in this show about 4-5 episodes in. It didn't pass my have to watch within a week test, so I just deleted the rest. It was just ok, but I couldn't bring myself to WANT to watch it. Plus I couldn't get past the wife's Australian, New Jersey accent :)

    I saw the first episode and it was just OK. With my Tivo filling up I got rid of the SP. I hope they have an ending episode not a cliff hanger at the end.

    Love this show and the cast. Well done. That makes it "must cancel TV" like Boomtown and other worth watching TV.

    Now I'm left with Justified as the only TV I watch.
