TV Hot Spot: News

More on: JourneyMan Cancelled!

Post by: Sal

The journey is coming to an end for NBC's freshman series "Journeyman."

NBC had until Tuesday to give a full-season pickup to the time-travel drama starring Kevin McKidd. The network let that option lapse, practically canceling the series, which posted its lowest adults 18-49 rating (1.7 rating/8 share) on Monday without a "Heroes" lead-in. The network already tried out fellow rookie "Life" in "Journeyman"'s Monday 10 p.m. slot last week.

Despite the Hollywood writers strike, "Journeyman" was able to complete its 13-episode order.

The remaining two original segments will air as scheduled, an NBC spokeswoman said.

NBC recently handed out full-season pickups to two of its four rookie scripted series, "Life" and "Chuck."

Since the production of most scripted series has been suspended because of the strike, such orders are considered a vote of confidence to the shows and a potential renewal for next season if the additional episodes can't be produced by the end of this season.

In limbo is the fate of the fourth new NBC series, the once-promising "Bionic Woman," which has been sliding in the ratings since its premiere.

Take Care,

i am heartbroken. i absolutely LOVE this show. i like chuck and life too, but this is by far my favorite show in a long time.
it honestly needed a better timeslot. 10pm is late for a lot of people.
i wish sci-fi or someone else would pick it up...

I like Life and Chuck but Journeyman was my favorite. I hate to see it go. Because of its time slot I had to DVR it. Perhaps it should have had an earlier timeslot.

I think that NBC is making a HUGE mistake by letting this show go. For a show that goes on right after Heroes and ends right before the news, I think it did pretty good. And lets not forget that many of the people who watch these TV shows are doing so from computers, dvr's and so forth; so stop looking at your rating numbers because trust me, they are going to off. Essentially because of the strike, I'm pretty sure that NBC and other networks want to show that they can do away with these TV shows because Reality shows are always available. People need to stop watching reality and start living it. Peace.
