    According to today's (Thursday) USAToday, it is expected that Smith will be this season's first casualty......

    Smith scored a low 8.4m viwers for the third episode on Tuesday.

    Agreed with Mike. We watched the premiere and I loved seeing Ray Liotta on the small screen. We'll probably watch the other two, but since we are getting backed up they may go.....I need to get my wireless adapters soon!!!!!

    I told my wife the same thing after watching it! I thought they have been pretty good so far. They should dump one of the gazillion "Lost" theme clones instead.

    It reminded me of The Italian Job or original Thomas Crown. Very crisply done with good cast. Perhaps too well done for unwashed masses.

    Much better than Shark or Justice which is an updated Mannix or Cannon type show.

    Grrr... I knew they would cancel this because last year there was show just like this where each episode they where preparing for a big heist. I think it was called The Heist or something. I loved it and bam they canceled it. I liked this one to and bam what do ya know. If it was another CSI they would of probably kept it =/ seems like everyone loves the crime stopper shows but not the crime maker ones.

    Just because they cancel a show that you like doesn't mean they cancel every show that you like. You only notice it because it's being cancelled. :D

    Do you like every new show? Do they cancel shows that you don't like?

    The show was horrible campy crap. Better off just getting a cheap cheese action movie.

    In episode 2 how about the needless motorcycle chase scene or the Hummer stupidty.............. Turned if off and deleted it before finishing.

    just goes to show that the tv viewing public is very weird in its likes and dislikes. Sure it was "cheesy and campy" but what action shows on network tv arent. I love the UNIT and it gets kick butt ratings but you know its just as cheesy as Smith. I think this shows that America does not like criminal , heist type shows where the characters are the bad guys. Look at recent failures in the genre(most of which i liked). I will miss Smith probably b/c of Liotta but Im sure that will leave me some time to record another show

    This show and The Heist last year both remind me of Oceans 11 / 12 and they where hit movies. I don't get why people don't like it. I hate the ratings system. They really need to change it. Specially now that more and more people are getting DVR's and TiVo's, who really watches commercials anymore anyways. The whole concept of ratings is becoming pointless because all people really see on a certain channel anymore is the channel logo.

    I knew I had a bad feeling today when I checked my todo list/recorded history and saw that it had been removed from the guide. I wonder if they'll at lease show the remaining episodes at some point? I don't get it, can The Class really be doing better then Smith?

    Uh, yes. The Class can be doing better, especially in key demos.

    In reality The Class is airing in a time slot/night when CBS does very well given their line-up of comedies airing against other networks offerings.

    CBS has proven this multiple times in the past -- witness the relative success of Yes!, Dear. Witness the success of King of Queens (despite Leah Remini's fatness :p ) and other similar shows on that night.

    Things may change up soon, since CBS is flipping the time slots of How I Met Your Mother and The Class, but that remains to be seen.

    yeah those were pretty popular movies. i think the difference is the comedy aspect. Those were kind of quirky. I wish more networks would do what nbc is doing with kidnapped and at least let the writers develop a an out and a finish to the story, ecspecially now that there are more serial dramas.
