Whats the deal with ratings? why do some tv shows with good ratings/reviews/fanbase get cancelled whilst others with low ratings are still around. For example Pushing Daisies, which averaged 9million viewers (13m at its best), has been canceled despite a great fanbase, critical acknowlegment and good ratings. However shows such as Dexter only average about 1mill viewers but hasnt been cancelled. dont get me wrong i think dexter is a great programme but im just confused. i would like to know how the system of tv viewership and the lifespan of a show works. I generally thought programs which averaged above the 2mill ratings were popular. I understand if tv progs are euthanised due to poor storylines/ cul de sac etc. i.e. the once great prison break (which still gets good ratings) and heroes which storylines seem to be going down an endless black hole . Does it depend on the network the program is on, the budget etc. or all of it combined. if budget is the concern, then why does a show like the Tudors (as an example) which must cost a lot of $mula$ keep surviving despite only averaging less than 1 mill viewers. Now with talks of T:TSCC, Dollhouse (which average 3mill pw) about to be cancelled, can someone please shed some light on this matter for me as it has been bugging me since the great modern classic that is Pushing Daises was cruely cut short. Before T:TSCC is killed can someone please put me out of my misery. Long live the pie makers and Jameron

Prison Break is not being cancelled, it's simply reaching it's conclusion, finishing the story. Do you really want it to go on and on? Eventually there will be no Michael and Linc but new characters and a slippery slope. This is what will make it a classic show and memorable. If it dragged on it would be a soap opera and not the great story that it is, similar to a book, you don't want to read a 100,000 page book. The prime example is Lost, originally written for a few seasons then dragged out until it has become boring, makes no sense and is now just nasty bad!!! Great things don't last forever, unfortunately. Please don't try and save it as ultimately this will only lead to a mediocre pile of nonsense, let it live in our memories as the fine tv series that it is. Hail Hail
Well the first 2 seasons fit the show but it just got ridiculous after that. Don't get me wrong it's a very good show I never missed an episode, but after the 2nd season they just completely went off task from what the show was supposed to be about. Going from escaping 2 prisons to running away from a company that tried to kill them now working for the company come on now. Who agrees?
i was rwading my newspaper in holland and there stood: Prison Break Last Season has Started! i was so shocked, this season rocked and i can't imagine there is no fifth season does anyone know when the new episodes starts?
or has prison break lost its mojo ?
any1 wonder how micheal schofeild would look with hair? lol. check out underworld(2003), the scene with micheal corvin and the other medical student in the locker room. i personally think he looks cute, i do quite like them dark haired.
Hello, I've been looking all over the web but am not able to figure out ANY information about the next episode. Please comment here when you find out as the series seems to be getting more intense.
i want to see the sneak peeks for the next episode. any ideas?
OK so from the episode 'GOING UNDER' we finally get a hint of what tombstone 2 is all about and from that im guessin that the real buyer is Micheal and Lincs mother. Remember when micheal was 1st diagnosed the docs said that what he had was very rare, and as we know already lincoln revealed that thier mom had the same condition. I realised the connection when sara asked the general whether any1 had survived the brain surgery that micheal was having to which he replied that the person lived a very long life. my suspicions were further more confirmed when lincoln revealed that their mum worked for the company. So it's pretty safe to say that the few remainig parts of the season will be concentrated around the bros mom and what her agenda is and retaining scylla. i'm guessin that shes probably gettin revenge for what the company did to her husband/ family etc. who knows but what a shock it will be when they findout shes alive. btw. the look on micheals face when he woke up after flatlining was hilarious...i love wentworth miller the 3rd (lol i love his name) but that was some shiteous unemotinal acting..looool loved the scenes with micheal and westmoreland..nice to see that the writers exploring micheals intelligence again.
