    Freeze in Heaven, ABC.

    Or whatever the opposite of 'burn in hell' should be.

    Canceled after two episodes! And yet, the promos for Work It called it a "New HIT Comedy" for Tuesday night. Can you call a show canceled after two episodes a HIT? Man, you can't believe anything you hear anymore...:D

    Seriously, I don't get how they can do that. Isn't that some sort of false advertising? I see this a lot with shows claiming to be the "New hit drama" or "#1 new show" when they are obviously none of the above.

    "New Hit show" is a vague and subjective enough terminology that it qualifies as simple puffery. In other words, "It's a hit" -- with those who like it. :)

    From what I've seen, they usually won't say something like #1 unless they can qualify it somehow. The qualification might be rather esoteric, like "#1 in the 22-24 female demographic" but it's probably still an accurate statement.

    Maybe they are watching election ads. :)

    :( Now we'll never be able to discover the nuances and motivations behind the main characters and watch them grow and gel as a team. Hopefully they'll continue with either straight-to-video episodes or webisodes or whatever the kids are calling it these days.

    And now, this thread has lasted longer than the series has. ;)
