TV Squad contest: Which new show gets canceled first?

by Keith McDuffee, posted Aug 22nd 2006 2:26PM
beyond tv 4 bundleBob ran a contest last year, and it worked out so well that we're doing it again. However this time, in order to give more people a chance at winning, we're making one change. And the prize this time: A do-it-yourself HD PVR system from SnapStream!

Every year there's a plethora of new fall shows and, like ritual, several of those fall shows ... fall. Your task: Be the first person to comment below with not only the first new show to be canceled from any of the top networks (those being ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and The CW) but also be the one to report the number of episodes it will last (or be closest to that number). By "last" I mean the number of actual episodes that will air consecutively through the season, not just those produced.

Read on for a few more important rules and prize details!

Basic rules (and these may be updated to clarify later, if need be): Only ONE entry per person. Each entry needs to be submitted in an approved comment (approved meaning you activated it via the email sent to you). Each comment may only contain one show with the number of episodes you think it will last before being canceled.

A "new" show is one that is first airing this fall, beginning with this past Monday (with Vanished). Once a show is officially reported by a network as being canceled, the potential winners will be narrowed down to those who chose that show. Once it's clear how many episodes will or have aired, we'll find the first person to have submitted that guess, and that will be the winner. Note: You must place your guess before the day of the cancellation announcement (i.e., you can't read about the cancellation and then post your "guess".) The number of episodes you list means episodes that air in succession during the season. So if the series airs episodes later next year or in specials, that won't count.

Now, here are the prize details. SnapStream was extremely generous enough to offer the winner a complete do-it-yourself PVR system, which includes:

It'll basically be a combination of these two items in the SnapStream store. Be sure to check out Beyond TV Buzz for some very cool features and stats regarding the recording features of SnapStream's products.

I'll close comments on this post when there's a winner. Good luck!

Smith gone after 3 episodes. I will be very surprised if Smith makes it to its 4th episode. I saw the first episode, couldn't make it through the second one. It was truly terrible (and I try to find the good in everything, but it was very hard to muster any positive comments).

I completely disagree with folks who believe Shark will go quickly. I love it as do many of my friends. Jimmy Woods is terrific and is supported by some very likable characters, and the story lines are interesting, as are the character backstories. However, I think it stands a better chance if it's not up against ER. CBS should euthanize Smith and put Shark in its place. As it is, I have two VCR's going in order to fully tape ER and Shark for later watching and click back and forth during the actual airings at 10 p.m.
