Summer of fail: Why are new shows bombing?--The Live Feed
Summer of fail: Why are new shows bombing?--The Live Feed: "This summer is one for the record books: more than a dozen new programs launched on broadcast television and not one breakout hit, with returning shows down and ratings at an all-time low."
This has to be one of the dumbest questions ever put in print. It's like asking "Who's buried in Grant's Tomb?"
Why are the new shows bombing? Because they are so bad that people won't even watch them for free. Question answered.
Episodic television is the only conclusive proof that Darwin was wrong. It has been devolving ever since they canceled Get Smart but it refuses to become extinct.
