Seems like the pre-cogs should have seen this coming.

I don't know if i'm sad about this news or not. I don't feel much about it one way or the other.

Kind of liked the first episode. Still need to watch the second episode. Not the most exciting thing on TV, but I don't think it's that bad. Like the lady detective, the pre-cog not so much.

I'm not surprised about this; I mean I've seen the ratings. I'm a little sad about the news. The show just reminds me of Almost Human, which I am still bitter about.

The first episode got me really excited about this show's potential, but the second episode left me feeling meh. Still rooting for it to hang in there and figure out what works/doesn't work but I'm not terribly surprised by the cancellation speculation.

its scattered too much. the first episode, being that its the first episode was hyped. The second seems to be floating around too much.

I've yet to see the broadcast pilot, which I read was a lot better than the leaked one. Though, it's all still the same world & premise, so I doubt I would be better convinced of its value going forward. Its a great idea but badly executed in my eyes. Not surprised if FOX cancel it early. They equally love & hate their sci-fi programming.

I've watched the leaked pilot as well as the episode that have been shown on TV. While the one shown on TV was better than the leaked one, I liked the sub-plot in the leaked one where the twin brother had been taken - not that he'd set up shop in the city. However, I have enjoyed it - it just needs to get moving and introduce an exciting plot

I hope they will change their minds and keep it, I think the series is better than the film and has potential to be a good show.

I agree 100% with haniel125: This could have been awesome, just like Almost Human. I hope FOX gives it a second chance, this has great potential for storytelling and worldbuilding.

JEEZ! i'm a little annoyed with the OP.. how can you post this article WITHOUT any evidence to back your claim up or to your reasoning for posting this? it really gets up my back when articles such as this one gets posted and it riles up the fans of the show, without proof of your claims.. it should NOT be posted, my suggestion, give us the linked evidence please Leah then maybe us fans of the show can see for ourselves. I agree with @Jeray and @12review.. it certainly IS too early to tell with only 3 episodes in.

@Sylar, yeah, well, the ratings are abysmal. Like, an unmitigated disaster. Don't just take it from me, take it from these guys: http://www.tv.com/shows/blindspot/community/post/new-fall-2015-tv-show-ratings-144345596846/

@leah This is a little depressing. A lower rating than Scorpion (one of the most awful shows on tv). And meanwhile, poorly written and edited shows like NBC's boilerplate procedural Blindspot take off like a rocket. Good job, FOX!

Not surprised at all. Couldn't even make it through the first episode, it was boring, forced and uninspired.

Man Meagan Good cannot catch a good TV break. All her shows always seem to get cancelled.

Omg the ratings are too low! Give the show a break! Both FOX & Sidereel need to give a show like this some time, it's not an action thriller, more mind playing in Minority Report. I really like this show after 3 episodes, so I hope it doesn't get cancelled!! Also, predicting that a show could get cancelled is irresponsible & does the show no favours which could create lower ratings as folks will say, why bother?! Can you get that point Leah? FOX don't cancel this show & definitely don't be persuaded by online "critics"!!

@Lorene Pare .. agreed, comments on low ratings will turn people off from watching the show thinking its going to get cancelled they'll be all like "Ah, no point in watching that if its getting cancelled" then rating won't rise. In the end.. if it gets cancelled, it get's cancelled.. the cast seems to be a bit of a bad mix, i'd get rid of that teenage looking cop woman, she do NOT fit well with the cast, other than that thought the show I think is pretty good.

Guys, it'll be OK. I've seen many a show go before their times, but we're all still here, and we're all still watching TV.

Minority Report is Fantastic. The attention to detail of the Sci-Fi universe is amazing. So far I'm really liking the characters and the technology. It's a fun show. Fox has a lot of issues with Science Fiction shows not doing well. Whats really surprising, is that Almost Human consistently had around 5 Million viewers, and Minority Report -- which is based on a huge, well known movie -- is getting just over 2 million, which is worse than Dracula and Hannibal. These ratings are abysmal and frankly it makes no sense whatsoever because It really is a good show. As much as I want to see this one continue, I'm not sure there's anything Fox can do to help it at this point.

Of all the shows they could cancel they choose this, yet another SciFi, this has the potential to be very interesting!

@Unknownfear have you noticed that the tv companies seem to have it in for SciFi shows, they seem to require many more viewers for them to justify keeping them running compared to other genres. Almost Human was a really good show, Firefly was fantastic and people still want it back. Yet they do not cater for that genre.

Firefly was overrated >.> But yeah -- Science Fiction is a genre show and genre shows are hard to sell on broadcast networks.

I'm a huge Sci-Fi fan, loved the movie (MR) & the concept, and was looking forward to the series. But in all honestly, the acting/casting is where this MR failed. Shame.

Well no suprise there.
I didn't like the actor he was not convincing enough for me.
One episode was missing and it seemed it would end up in the milkbath come what ever may.

@Unknownfear I mean everyone's entitled to their opinions and all but Firefly? Overrated? Excuse me? Look, I'm not one of those people who's been mourning it since forever or anything, I only watched it for the first time like 2 years ago. But I fell for it so hard. That show spoke to my soul. It had so many strengths and managed to accomplish so much in so few episodes. There's a reason people still talk about it over 10 years after cancellation. And yeah, the whole "gone too soon" thing certainly adds to people's feelings about it, but people wouldn't have that feeling to begin with if it wasn't so damn good. It even won over my dad big time, and he literally does not watch any scripted television ever. He does not get invested in tv shows. At all. He can't comprehend my investment in them. But when I showed him Firefly he LOVED it. He kept coming to me asking if we could go watch the next episode now. I've never seen anything like it. So yeah, Firefly, overrated? No. Just no.
