NBC cancels My Own Worst Enemy
The fall season has its first high-profile cancellation (we're not counting The Ex-List). NBC has put the kibosh on the ballyhooed My Own Worst Enemy, reports Variety. The word came down last night after My Own Worst Enemy once again fizzled in the ratings department, with Monday night's episode drawing only 5.2 million viewers and a 2.3 rating/6 share among key demographics.
Riding a flood of publicity, My Own Worst Enemy was one of NBC's brightest new entries when it debuted on October 13 in the time slot behind the struggling Heroes. But the show never caught on with viewers, and Heroes' dwindling numbers and competition from Monday Night Football and Dancing With the Stars probably didn't help get the word out, either.
My Own Worst Enemy marked Christian Slater's debut as a leading television man. He played a man with two lives--one as a suburban family man and one as a super spy--that eventually converge after not knowing the other existed for some time.
The debut season of My Own Worst Enemy will be cut short, completing nine episodes of its 13-episode order. The show's fourth segment aired this past Monday.
My Own got pwned. What do you think--is this show worth organizing a "save the show" campaign around? Or should we just let it go?
