    Yet another poll...

    I figure this will be the best way to really get to the bottom of the make-up of the viewers that will be watching...


    So here goes nothing....

    Hopefully the poll choices will work for anyone answering....

    Maybe and "Burn in Hell Fox!"

    They canceled the only specialty show I watched. Celebrity boxing. Watching Tonya Harding beat the crap out of another woman was priceless and they deprived me of that.

    I fear that it will be nothing but them highlighting injuries and pain, but I've got to give it a shot before I damn it.

    I would just as soon watch paint dry. And we have to wait until March for Prison Break to start again?

    Yeah, this show is the reason why we have to wait until March, isn't it? That right there guarantees a BIHFox, IMO. :thumbsdown:

    you know I was looking at my To Do list and Fox has stoped showing most of its stuff so they can start showing 24, A Idol, Skateing, etc. Why can't they just stick with the fraking shows they have!!! Dam it I hate Fox

    Figure skating and Nascar auto racing are exactly the same.

    Every body watches them waiting for the accidents to happen!

    Actually, I believe it's because they want to run the remaining episodes consecutively, without reruns, with the season finale airing during May sweeps. As a a result, they back-timed the start of the new episodes to March.

    They need something to fill the gap until then, so they decided to go with skating celebrities (although as one story about the show pointed out, most of the skaters are more famous than their "celebrity" partners).

    Very very occassionally I will watch figure skating or ice dancing but I have so many backed up episodes of good shows on my Tivo why waste my time? I did see the ad for this and the emphasis on people falling turned me way off.

    Watch the Olympics, the skating at least will be good.

    If ANYBODY watches this show, then I can safely say that America has no taste and quality shows like Arrested Development and their ilk will never find sufficient ratings to succeed.

    Don't judge a show by the what the stupid marketing people are doing to advertise it.

    Well, as I look at those poll results, unless a lot of the BURN IN HELL FOX voters are also willing to be in that Maeby category, FOX has a stinker to be on their hands....

    Not very good results for a show that is knocking a critical darling off the air, and helping to keep other high-buzz and high-ratings shows off the air at the same time.

    But such is life if you are a FOX viewer. They feed us crap because someone buys it, or because it's cheaper than other crap that they want to feed us but which we don't eat/watch.

    Are you happy now that you've crapped all over the show before it has even aired? :thumbsdown:
