    That's it! I am officially boycotting fox. I will do that tv thing where you can block the channel. Why the f**k won't they give things a chance! Oh, no they couldn't do that, they have to keep shows that wouldn't tax a 5 year old in the thinking department! God, I HATE fox!!! And yes, I am blaming fox for bad decision making skills.

    Unless you have Nielson Box, boycotting will do nothing.

    Wow this sucks. I really do hate Fox, yet another great show being killed so early on. At least they gave the show a decent chance, I really don't see why it's getting the ratings it's getting....

    This cancellation has really upset me.

    Am I the only one that feels like Anya, left standing at the alter?.  (BtVS)

    Those of us who have been here before may have to accept that we are too discerning for

    main stream TV entertainment.  Because of this we are doomed to forever love the programs that

    never seem to make it.

    Why does fox invest millions onto creating these shows then put them on a rubbish times and don't give them long enough to get a big enough audience?

    Sending everywhere I can find a FOX email 

    Dear Fox,

    Following the recent decision to cancel Drive in the quite unfair timescale it received, I have reached the following:-

    I will no longer watch any new series debuted by Fox.

    Whilst I realise this idea could be a visicous circle of ever shrinking audiences for a new series, I can see no point in gambling my time to support a show, when you are unwilling to gamble a decent chance for a fan base to exist.

    Furthermore, I am afraid I will now actively seek out competitors products for the advertisers of any show on your network I am unlucky enough to watch. At the last count, that was two shows. Just two. I will probably bear an episode of Idol or 24 (and they are not the two), just so I know which of the larger adverts I will avoid. They are now anti-adverts, if you will.

    Regards,
    A Lost Pair of Eyeballs.

    I do not wish to be contacted by any party; first, third or other, with products or services.

    Its not the boycotting of FOX (They barely had me to begin with, my presence or not wouldnt affect them) but the active avoidance of their best advertisers.

    This is why I only watch the animated shows on FOX. Because either I cant get into it, dont want to watch it or, they make a good show but cancel it after 3 of 4 episodes.The same thing happened with Killer Instinct. So, yeah I'm pretty much done with FOX.

    I'd have to say I'm not all that suprised at the news. Now FOX will probably develop yet another reality show to fill this space next year.

    This sucks!  Has anyone heard anything about the show being picked up by other networks?!?  Drive would fit in perfectly with the CW's line up.  What about FX?  Putting it there would be the least that FOX could do?  What do you guys think?!?

    Harrumph. CW doesn't even know enough to keep "Veronica Mars" in its lineup.

    Call the FOX viewer comment voicemail line and leave a message.  Be polite and stern, passionate, but polite.

    Great Show ruined (not even giving a chance to show) by bad TV company called Fox.... and this is happening over and over again... Why do we even bother with watching FOX shows.

    Hell, you find a really decent TV series and they decide to cancel it, in the next two to four weeks we have the season finale's of NCIS, Bones, Lost, King of Queens, Jericho and The Unit ( sorry they maybe more ) and now I'm finding that Drive is being cancelled, well it just sum's it up how TV stations cancel decent shows and replace them with reality TV shows instead.

    they hardly gave it a chance. 3 episodes isnt a decent chance. Thats a bunch of idiots that have no business running a telvision network running scared....AGAIN!
