'FlashForward' Gets New Showrunners

There are many ways to tell if there's something wrong with a show. Ratings drop, a big star leaves the show, baby is added to get attention, etc, etc. Another way to tell something isn't right is if the show (particularly a new one) goes through showrunners like, well, like I go through Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Take 'FlashForward'. First showrunner Mark Guggenheim left the production and earlier this week David Goyer left. Now comes word that Goyer has been replaced.
TheWrap.com reports that Goyer has been replaced with three people: Lisa Zwerling, Jessika Borsiczky, and Tim Lea will be in charge of the show. But who knows if this show will see a second season. They've made some mistakes creatively, ABC has cut the episode order a bit, and it just seems like one of those shows whose mystery can be wrapped up in one season (the big event happens to coincide with the season finale, which could work out well).
