FOX (ended 2005)
|I just started watching the series last week on Sci Fi (though I've know about it before) but now I don't know if I wanna get "into" the show deeply since Fox cancelled the series too early (I also hate Fox for cancelling The O.C. & Point Pleasant)|
It was such a great show!
Fox were stupid to cancel it! The main reason they did it though is because they said it was getting "Too Repetitive"
It didn't though!!! It would have been repetitive if she saved the same life every week but it was all different and always a new story! Best thing to ever come out of Fox!
|From what I've seen, Fox seem to prematurely axe their shows before thinking properly or giving them a chance. Tru Calling had an amazing amount of potential and with the introduction of the darker, competing characters such as Jack and Tru's father there was so many potential twists and turns to come. In my opinion, it is a major chance missed.|
|I am mad at FOX for abruptly ending Tru Calling like they did.IONLY watch Bones on that channel now. When American Idol is on I also watch that, but that is it.|
Tru Calling was an amazing show that was cancelled before its time. I got into the show 3 of 4 years after it ended and I was watching all the episodes on DVD. FOX cancels great shows, Firefly mainly.
FOX renewed the shoe for a second series and at the last minute they decided to cancel it after the 6 season 2 episodes were finished. Fans were angry at FOX but FOXdecided to air the remaining 5 out of the 6 episode. The 6th did not originally air since it was airing in April and it was a Christmas episode.
Tru calling averaged between 3-5 million viewers, which calls out cancellation straight away. But the shows 18-49 rating must have been very good for the series to finish out its first season and to get a second season pick-up. The series aired against NBC's then fameous Thursday night Must see TV line up and Tru Calling must have been performing better than other shows FOX aired in that timeslot.
Tru Calling should have went on for years.
I think if Tru Calling was shown on CBS and started airing in the 2005-2006 tv season, CBS could have put the show on Fridays after Ghost Whisperer (which lasted 5 seasons) and probably could have lasted just as long. And CBS would not have treated te show so badly.
