When ABC first launched FlashForward, the network and producers boasted of having a five-season story arc for the drama about life after an international black-out. Apparently, the plan laid out by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Brannon Braga (24) was so compelling, it ignited a network bidding war among the nets before ABC snatched the project. 'These high-concept shows can be fantastic, but there are a lot of pitfalls, ' ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson told EW back in September. 'The fact that they had done their homework made all the difference.'Â
Did it? Tonight, ABC will air the drama's 22nd and final episode of FlashForward, because the network decided against ordering a second season. After a respectable debut last fall - it averaged 12.5 million viewers - ratings plummeted throughout the season. (It didn't help that the show, like V, went on hiatus over the winter.) Part one of the FlashForward finale on May 20 only averaged 5.3 million - down 28 percent from its season average (7.4 million), so it's not likely that tonight's Part 2 will do any better. Suddenly, all that talk about a five-year plan didn't mean a thing if no one showed up to watch.
