Smith will stream on Web

Smith's got a new alias, and it's a URL.

CBS has announced it will burn off the remaining episodes of the Ray Liotta crime show on its Innertube broadband Web site. Additionally, the producers of Smith will offer a written synopsis of how they planned on finishing out the season.

Smith premiered to mediocre ratings and quickly fell in successive airings, prompting CBS to pull the plug after three weeks. The three previously aired episodes and the four unaired episodes of Smith will run on Innertube free, starting today, for the next four weeks.

Smith was created by West Wing executive producer John Wells and starred Ray Liotta as the leader of a crime ring. The series also starred Virginia Madsen as Liotta's wife and Jonny Lee Miller as a member of the team.

The Internet is becoming the go-to place for failed series. Earlier this week CBS announced it would put passed-on pilot The Papdits on Innertube, and last week NBC said pulled show Kidnapped would finish out its days at NBC.com.

I should like to echo what rtaggi is saying and also add...How can you tell after just 3 weeks that show isn't gonna work...at least show it and give it a chance..perhaps spend some air time promoting it instead of giving up. I am a UK USTV fan and I am beginning to get fed up with these power crazy money men just axing well produced drama...Kidnapped is another one. Looking forward to it being shown in the UK at least we appreciate it. As it is 'Smith' Started on our ITV network last night...Bravo...give to us...we'll appreciate them....

how often does network tv get 2 "a" list motion picture stars to do a series? this show was excellent, i watched all the episodes. unfortunately,it is a 'continuing drama type' and, i feel, this really hurts ratings. i usually will not watch this type show because i know i am going to miss some episodes even with TIVO and other things like this available. i think making all shows available on demand for free will do a lot to boost network show ratings. again in my case if i know this streaming video option is available, i may re consider my decision, and watch these continuing drama type shows more often

I watched all three episodes of this show live, and I thought it was one of the best new shows this season; this is awesome news.

I'm sure if you really want to, you could download the torrents of these episodes or find a website that lets you directly download the episodes. What are you talking about caponecr?

I hope this is the beginning of a trend. Over the past 10 years the networks have been yanking shows of the schedule that still have unaired episodes. Maybe they will take these shows out of the vault and put them on the internet.

Isn't it possible for someone to rip the episodes from the web so that we who don't live in the US can see the last four episodes too?

Wow, I didn't know you know you had to be in the US to watch the streams. That's bullsh*t. I guess I'll have to amuse myself reading the synopses. Whoopie!
