Merlin: To Kill The King/Le Morte D'Arthur (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 24th 2009 8:07AM
MerlinI'm not sure if NBC plans on showing the second season of Merlin. I've been wondering why NBC has been doubling up on episodes the last several weeks. Is it just to burn the show off during the summer because they have no intention of bringing it back next season? (It has already been renewed for a second season in the UK.) Or is Sunday night during the summer just a convenient night to double up on episodes?

Anyway, what did you think of the season finale?

Entire summer TV schedule declared a failure

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 17th 2009 8:10AM
It's not really possible that every summer premiere on the great Nobody was listening to NBC's The Listener this summer.American broadcast TV schedule crashed and burned, is it?

But, out of all the original programs that premiered on the major networks after the completion of the fall 2008 season, not a single one got traction.

According to analysis reports, you can take your pick from any of the following shows: Defying Gravity, The Superstars, The Listener, Mental, The Philanthropist, Hitched or Ditched, Merlin and Great American Road Trip. All of them bombed -- each hovering just above a one market share.

In fact, you don't need numbers to prove that the fall crop crapped out. Ask your friend what his/her favorite summer replacement show was. You'll be waiting awhile.
