    I hope so. AMC could choose to only stream it on AMC+

    I'll give NBC credit, they keep trying these sorts of shows. I wonder how many episodes it will take before it goes off the rails? But I'll be watching.

    this is the reason i won't watch the show, nbc dumps them too quickly, and usually leaves the audience hanging - sorry, but no charlie, lucy and the football this time for me! :)

    As I always say, its a self fulfilling prophecy. We want the networks (in this case NBC), to give us new and different types of shows, but we are afraid to watch for fear that they will drop the show while we get in deep. So we don't watch and the networks don't bother and we get the same cycle of stale Police, law and medical shows. So for this reason I watch, because I want more of this. The problem is, not that they dump them too quickly, it's that the writers don't know how to keep these types of shows compelling and they often go off the rails. And I think part of the problem is that they are not given a timeline to complete the story. If the show is good, the network will want to keep it going and the stories become more implausible because they are stretching it out longer than they want. Then people stop watching and shows get cancelled before there's an ending that makes sense. That's why I think Lost ultimately needed to have that definitive ending or we'd have continued to get a lot of implausible stuff. I think that's what happened with a show like Manifest. They kept trying to stretch it out and eventually it got silly.

    i was thinking of revolution (i only watched the manifest pilot for the same reason). it isn't that i didn't give them a chance, it's that i did and they blew it, so they don't get a second chance to disappoint me - there are simply too many good options out there now for me to waste my time, unless they write it as a one and done up front.

    Is that new Tim Allen/Karn show actually going to be on the History Channel? I think I saw something about that recently, but I found it odd that it w/b on the History Channel. Then, I thought maybe I wasn't paying proper attention and/or I just got confused. :D

    Guess I won't be watching since YTTV doesn't carry History Channel. Too bad because I loved his original show.

    You're right, my season pass was using TNT instead of CW.

    We're now farther away from "Lois and Clark" than it was from the Christopher Reeve movies!! Just interesting imo.
