But...this year you should also start getting concerned for a lot of sophomore shows - ones that premiered last Fall to pretty decent numbers, had abbreviated seasons due to the strike, and have now returned with far less impressive stats.
For each of these shows, not only are the numbers far lower than what they were receiving last year (Private Practice received 14.4 million viewers for its series premiere...it was an ABC hit), but they are also currently still in decline from week to week.
These shows will not all survive to see a third season; that much I am sure of (unless their numbers magically double...a tripling would be ideal). My vote is sadly going to go towards Pushing Daisies as the next victim. This speaks nothing about the show's quality, but I can only imagine that production costs are particularly high for Daisies...and there's no way that it's making any money.
Which show do you think will be the next victim? Weigh in below!
