NBC is not rushing to cancel any shows yet, including new shows that probably need to be.
Performance is what they mainly look at, instead of quality, and if we were to go on that — they should be canceling Free Agents and The Playboy Club (though Playboy Club should probably go on quality too).
NBC won’t be pulling any new series this week since NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt wants to give all freshmen more time to send a message to the creative community that he will give their shows on NBC every possible chance to succeed.
This is interesting because last year that wasn't the case. Some shows were even canceled after just two airings.
If you ask us, though, they should weigh whether or not things are terrible too. Some shows just take a while to hit stride (the first season of Parks and Recreation took a while to find its voice, for example, and now it's incredible).
Like, we'd say Whitney needs to be either be totally reworked or axed, because it's pretty painful to watch. Which sucks, because Whitney is a pretty great stand up comedienne! But it's still getting decent ratings.
Do U watch these shows? Which should get the axe??
