Is NBC Desperate?

Posted in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television with tags , , , , , on October 24, 2010 by ghostradioworld

Or have they just lost their collective minds?  Despite the cancel worthy ratings of “Chuck” and new shows “Chase”, and “Undercovers”, the network has given them all additional orders.  “Chuck” and “Chase” have gotten full series orders, and “Undercovers” has gotten an additional script order.

Some have suggested this is based on a dislike of their mid-season replacement shows.  Or, with the change of management, they simply don’t want to justify any shows currently in development chosen by the previous programming team.  Or, maybe, it is just the desperation or madness suggested above.  But, however you slice it, it’s an odd move.

Thoughts?

Video: NBC Announces New Fall Season, “Heroes” Axed

Yup,  “Heroes” is gone.  But NBC has a few shows lined up for fall which might strike your fancy.

First up a new superhero show to appease bereaved “Heroes” devotees called “The Cape.”

Then there’s “The Event” a conspiracy thriller. We know you love conspiracies.  And this one looks like a combination of “24” and “Lost”!  Getting excited yet? We are.

Finally, there’s the new spy thriller from J.J. Abrams called “Undercovers”.  J.J. and spies?  How can you not be excited about that?

Sure, all these shows might suck.  But, you gotta admit, it looks like last place NBC is swinging for the fences with this line up.  And we’ll be tuning in hoping for doubles, triples, and maybe even a home run.  And with these three batters we see NBC as having a real chance to score.

And now that we’ve tortured that sports metaphor to within an inch of  its life, watch the trailers below:
