Farewell, "What About Brian"
ABC is airing the second season finale of "What About Brian" tonight after an all-new "Dancing with the Stars." Will that be the ultimate swan song for the J.J. Abrams produced series?
One of the biggest surprises last May at the Upfronts, was ABC's decision to renew its low-rated midseason drama "What About Brian" which was produced by the creator of ABC's hit shows Alias and LOST.
During the lackluster second season that included the casting of 90210 alum Tiffany Thiessen the ratings actually went 13% down from last spring's already disappointing levels and now the network may finally pull the plug.
Last week ABC announced the renewal of 11 shows including two dramas considered to be "on the bubble" - "Men In Trees" and "Boston Legal." That means the network may no longer have any available slots for a low-rated program.
ABC's pilot development is very strong this year and the network has received a lot of buzz for some of the projects, namely the US adaptation of the British series "Footballers' Wives", as well as the TV version of the big screen blockbuster "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and Greg Berlanti's ('Brothers & Sisters') new drama "Dirty Sexy Money" described as 'Dynasty' meets 'Six Feet Under.'
If this is the end for Brian, he may not get the romantic closure he’s been seeking. In tonight’s episode, he’s still trying to figure out if he’s with the right woman.
