TV prime time’s goners and gonna goers


Thumbs DownThe end of the prime time regular season is drawing very close, and most of the networks now have a good idea of what shows are nearing the end, if they have not in fact already come to an end. Let’s take a look at the latest assessment from TV by the Numbers.

We will begin by putting a suitable image in your brain – imagine an idyllic hill with the sun setting behind it upon which stands a solitary soldier playing a soulful version of Taps.

Got it? Ok, let’s proceed.

  1. Too bad about CBS’s “Vegas”. It’s a well-written, well-acted show. My question is, why would any TV producer or network think a show set in the 1960s be a hit with the 18-49 crowd? How can they relate? The show does well in total cume, but I’m sure it’s mostly 50+.
