    Not surprised at K-Ville, Laughlin, or Cavemen. A little surprised at Journeyman and Back to You...

    Real surprised about Journeyman. I like that show, and it seems that there are plenty out there that do as well. As for Back to you, I didn't get into that show so no comment on that.

    i still cant get the similarities of JM and dead zone out of my head. The guys look alike and it's sorta the same principle of changing things.

    How can they say Viva Laughlin is in trouble when it hasn't even aired yet!

    Everyone seems so eager to write the show off. How about we let it air a couple of times first before relegating it to the trash?

    What an absurd methodology for determining a TV show's popularity :confused:

    I don't believe for a minute that Journeyman is more at risk than Big Bang Theory or Kid Nation.

    Unless a 12 year old made this list...

    Hopefully they keep Journeyman around. It's the one new show I am enjoying this season.

    Agreed. If they cancel it, I'll also just have to say "Oh Boy!"

    Has any mid season show ever really done well, why not just keep ALL stuff that started for the full season?

    cause some shows are expensive to produce and don't get good ratings.

    You can replace it with a show that costs less and gets slightly better ratings and come out ahead. That might be a new mid-season replacement show. Or it could be more episodes of a show like "Deal or No Deal". :)

    But what about shows like Smith where it was already filmed and edited and done, just never aired the last 3.

    Guess it's all down to $ in their pocket now.

    How about "The Simpsons", "All in the Family" or "Happy Days"?

    Or Reunion, dammit!

    I have Journeyman waiting for me on the Tivo. I'm afraid to start watching for fear of cancellation.

    Well K-Ville was awful. Deleted after 10 minutes.
    Back to You - we deleted from our season pass just last night after letting it build up 2 episodes and not being particularly bothered by it. Its just any average sit-com....
    Journeyman we are on the fence with. It has too many plot holes but it has an interesting concept. Still My wife if put off it as she likes "The Time Traveler's Wife" and this show is a poor comparison to it. We haven't watched this week episode yet and we'll probably decide whether to keep in on the SP after that.

    Based on the metric that counts, ratings, Journeyman is in trouble. But even its lead-in, Heroes, is seeing a pretty steep ratings slide.
