So I know that this isn't news exactly... (I partly want as many people as possible to see this and give their opinion) but I just read that apparently Dirty Sexy Money, one of my favorite shows, is most likely going to be cancelled. So what I can't understand is why television networks seem to only make an effort to promote their most popular shows and not make much of an effort for their not yet established (but perhaps very promising) shows and let them flounder?
I mean, in DSM's case, I believe it's up against some pretty stiff competition (okay, almost all the popular shows are on Mon, Wed, Thurs, or Sun while Tues, Fri, and Sat don't have much good quality tv) on Wed, so... why not move it to say... Tues (but not Fri)? I mean, I think super nanny and super manny are on then, but I feel like there's a decent time slot open that day.
I don't know, but isn't it in the networks' best interests to have as many successful shows as they can instead of just a few?
And just a slightly unrelated point--remember how every commercial break nbc ran promos for my own best enemy (not to knock on that show specifically) and ultimately ended up wasting millions of dollars? Even I could have told you I wouldn't have watched it.
I mean I guess it makes some sense to put your money on shows that will promise you viewers, but it's shame what happens to good shows like DSM, Pushing Daisies, (I think I've heard "axe" reports for) the Sarah Connor Chronicles, Friday Night Lights (a few months ago, although it's safe for now), ect.
