More Questionable Renewals
Desperate times call for desperate measures. Despite the fact that FOX's "Standoff" lost half of its premiere audience and the comedy "Till Death" hit season-low with a recent episode, the network does not have much to choose from.
They have already axed the rookie sitcom "Happy Days" (a sure shot for cancellation from the get-go), as well as the freshman dramas "Vanished" and "Justice". Despite all stubborn reluctance to use the word 'cancellation' and moving the shows around the disintegrating schedule, the plug had to be pulled.
But, there's little left, so the shows whose average numbers normally spell 'axe' on a different network, these days proved to be good enough for FOX. Then again, '24' and 'American Idol' are on the way back and they will be a great re-launching platform for some of these shows. After all, FOX's biggest hit on the current schedule 'House, M.D.' would never have caught on had it not been for those crooning youngsters.
