    American Inventor May Be Renewed For A Second Season

    Mediaweek.com is reporting that ABC is considering renewing 'American Inventor' for another season. I've posted the 'American Inventor' part of the article below.

    Meanwhile, American Inventor is averaging approximately 10 million viewers and drawing a 4.2/11 among 18-49s. That demo rating represents a 128 percent rise over time-period occupant Extreme Makeover last year. Andrea Wong, ABC’s exec vp of alternative programming, suggested aspiration-type shows still have legs. “This show is about people pursuing their dreams and pouring their hearts and souls into their ideas,” she said. “And viewers are rooting for these contestants to do that.”

    What’s more, unlike Unan1mous, Inventor lacks the benefit of a consistent lead-in (it airs Thursdays at 9 p.m.). And although no decision has been made regarding another cycle, Wong said Inventor’s self-starter status shows “the potential strength of a second season.”
    But several advertisers said that if these shows return, they’ll likely serve as stop-gap measures rather than scheduling cornerstones. That determination appears to be based largely on the absence of watercooler buzz. “Neither of them shows signs of being a breakout pop-culture phenomenon,” said John Rash, chief broadcast negotiator for Campbell Mithun.
    If they renew this show, I hope they stop showing recap episodes every single week. They drag out the show for so long, it makes the show so damn boring. If they can't make the show a little more interesting and faster-paced, I won't watch it if they have another season.

    American Inventor Officially Renewed

    TheFutonCritic.com is reporting that ABC announced today with their fall schedule that they have renewed 'American Inventor' for a second season. Here is the small part about the show below.

    [quote]Returning Series Include "Grey's Anatomy," "Lost," "Desperate Housewives," "Dancing with the Stars," "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," "Boston Legal," "The Bachelor," "Supernanny," "What About Brian," "According to Jim," "America's Funniest Home Videos," "American Inventor," "George Lopez" and "Wife Swap"[quote]

    I'm praying they make the second season more interesting. If they don't show a recap episode every week, and they make the show a little more fast paced, it will be much better. They probably won't make any changes.

    Oh, for crying out loud. If they're going to do this again, they had better make it more interesting!

    If they cut out all the teary eyes glistening at every sob story, they could do the whole season in about fifteen minutes.
