Pretty sure Numbers was already cancelled, they did a definite finale show with all the characters going off in different directions. GW was definitely running out of steam. CC used a routine plot formula that was getting tiresome. Still, they will have to come up with really good shows to replace them.

Miami Medical was so new I'd not seen it yet, but did we really need another medical show?

Shatner could be funny with the right material. Sellick does a great cop on Jesse Stone but do we really need another cop show?

OH

The New Adventures of Old Christine-beyond stupid IMO

Gary Unmarried-another really stupid one. Glad to see it go.

Miami Medical-too new. Not attached to it at all.

Accidentally on Purpose-funny but not all that great.



FlashForward started good but had too many mistakes. OMG, a gun is pointed at someone by a wired up controlled thingy....knock it over rather than put on the safety. Right?

A Glock does not have a safety to put on, and the device was wired to fire if tampered with in any way.

I saw the episode, too. No mention of a safety, or turning on a safety that I recall.

It was in the picture...they didn't say anything and if it should have been a gun with no safety, then the prop they used was a fail...cuz it sure looked like one.

Then again, I see stuff on medical shows that is not real and get bummed....after awhile they get turned off too cuz of it.

They can use simple words to explain stuff but keep it like real life...don't take someone off a machine breathing for them to oxygen and a nasal cannula and claim they need to go back on the machine 'in a few minutes but this will work for a short time'....

I was thinking the opposite is why Numb3rs failed.

High math cred, high geek cred in the beginning.

Then, they started making it simpler to try to have a broader audience.

The geeks bailed because it was lam3rz (me), it couldn't hook the norms, and it went down hill.

"Numb3rs failed" ?!?

The networks would piss themselves in sheer joy if their other shows could 'fail' the way Numb3rs did. Granted, it never reached the popularity of the 'CSI' series, but just about no other series has. It had a pretty steady fan base (and still does) for its six-season run. It has been a good performer for CBS.

As shows run on for multiple seasons, a slow, steady decline in ratings is the normal course of events for all but the most popular shows.
