    NBC is bringing back "The Singing Bee" while newcomer "Journeyman" will wrap its 13-episode run with a pair of episodes during the week of December 17.

    Both developments, confirmed via listings updates this afternoon, come as the Peacock prepares to unveil its January lineup.

    As for specifics, "Journeyman" will air its 12th and 13th installments on Monday, December 17 and Wednesday, December 19 at 10:00/9:00c respectively, leading out of two-hour episodes of "Clash of the Choirs" on both nights.

    NBC has yet to commit to any episodes beyond its initial 13-episode order despite asking for three additional scripts last month.

    I bet if they were to re-run them, they would get better ratings as people are reluctant to jump of a series mid run for fear of not being able to catch up with an existing story arc.

    Geez, do we need to start a grass roots campaign, and mail $20 bills to them?

    Wait...how about Monopoly money?? :)

    They still didn't utter the big "C" word yet.

    Hah, I think Monopoly money would be the way to go. I'd send them a real $20 bill but I doubt many other people would! They'd still cancel it and make a little profit in the process.

    I see the handwriting on the wall
    I have 9 or 10 episodes that I have not watched yet. Guess I'll go ahead and deleted them, HD programming eats up a lot of space.

    So they will at least finish the series and not leave us hanging. Though a rerun of the episodes would be an excellent idea. I wouldn't mind watching it again.

    I don't get that. Why not watch them if you like them? Wistfully enjoying 10 episodes of a doomed show you like is better than seeing none of them out of spite.

    Don't wish to get emotionally invested in a doomed show.

    But if you get a finish at the end, what's the problem? Supposedly Journeyman will give a resolution at the end. I've always felt that certain shows...like this one, Heroes, Lost, etc should only be a season or two long anyway.

    Everything ends. Do you avoid getting emotionally invested in movies that are over after two hours, or books that end after 250 pages?

    The problem is that a lot of the times there is no conclusion and it's like walking out of the theater at the 1:45 mark or having the last 10 pages of the book ripped out. Just look at all the anger about the Sopranos ending with many looking for some 'conclusion' to the story and not getting it.

    I agree with your film and book analogy, but the Sopranos is a bad example. Many got the feeling initially, but changed their minds when it was explained to them. David Chase himself said that the ending was..."life goes on".

    I was one of the ones that hated it at first and then recognized the reasoning behind it and then didn't mind so much.

    Anyway, The Sopranos was supposed to end that way. There was no walking out early or torn pages.

    PLEASE PLEASE someone at NBC get smart and realize this would be an excellent series for the Sci-Fi channel.
    Don't END this show!

    I made my wife watch the first four episodes this weekend and she was hooked. I downloaded them off of amazon unbox. Maybe if NBC sees a spike in that type of revenue-they will think twice? I mean, cmon, NBC-like you have ANYTHING better to put on Monday nights at 10? At least the awful Studio 60 got a full year.

    Sci-Fi could never afford this show.

    These days most every movie is written with a sequel in mind so you always get that feeling, even at the end.

    If we get a reasonable ending, I won't feel too bad. I was really hoping for a pickup, as this is my favorite new show of the season, but I have known for a while that things look grave. :(

    If we get a solid ending I will not be that upset. If they pull a traveler I will be very pissed. I like the show and will miss it a lot since there is very little scifi these days.

    Maybe someone can explain to me why they don't move such shows to Sci-Fi or similar place, the ratings they got would be SUPER on those, so why not?
