Keeping my fingers crossed..I really hope they bring it back!! The medical/ER/Paramedic stuff was on the mark..I worked the ER for 16 years..this show is believable.
TNT (ended 2006)
I still hope they bring it back...It seems they are "waiting" to see what happens....
Saved was able to really pack some emotional punch with some of its season 1 episodes, and how they showed snapshots of the patient's lives was really interesting and made the victims more important than those on ER.
They dealt with interesting conflicts, and I'm still hoping for more. Though TNT has made wretched decisions before like saying Witchblade had run its course (while the producers were still good to go!).
Anyway, I hope this doesn't add to the steadily increasing list of shows lost.
Personally, I'm hoping that the gauntlet doesn't fall on this one for good. My sister and I both scheduled our masters classes around this show, and my dad, who is a retired paramedic, even found it to be very entertaining. For once he didn't pick apart a medical show for the accuracy of the storyline.
It seems lately that all of the truly great shows get axed. If this is for good, we'll just put this in the file of "Shows That Deserved More Airings" along with Everwood and Sports Night.
I read in a local TV guide a couple of weeks ago that TNT was canceling Saved simple based on the facts that with the sucsess of the Closer, there has been new standards for what constitutes a hit show on TNT, and Saved's rateing were not were they needed to be compared to the Closer to be considered a hit.
The same thing happened to Wanted, TNT stated that they opted to cancel Wanted to concentrat on the Closer be they saw room for more character development for the characters in Wanted.
It seems like TNT is turning into another FOX, getting veiwers interested in new shows just to cancel them after the first season. Look at examples like Keen Eddie and Firefly. In the case of Keen Eddie Fox kept changeing the time slot, then canceled it do to ratings becuase nobody could find it. Then they air Firefly out of order and canceled it stating nobody understood it, becuase THEY air everything out of order.
Neither FOX nor TNT have enough guts to listen to thier viewers and give them what they want. Take TNT for example i post something close this on their saved forums, and they promptly deleted it.
