    Re: Zero Hour

    Not certain as I may have heard incorrectly, but I think I heard that it is being pulled after 2 episodes? This was something from a radio reviewer this morning.

    Wow... I saw a review, from a reviewer who loves A.E., and was disappointed, but figured it would still survive once he hit his marks again...

    Re: Zero Hour

    Short write-up from DEADLINE.COM about the all important viewer numbers for Zero Hour. Apparently, the only show to ever have a worse debut is Do No Harm.

    The premiere of Zero Hour (1.3/4) on Valentine’s Day saw the full-time return of Anthony Edwards to primetime more than a decade after he left ER. Unfortunately for ABC, on a night that traditionally sees lower viewership, the conspiracy drama marked the lowest-rated in-season debut for a scripted show ever on the network. Facing off against American Idol in the 8 PM time slot, Zero Hour was down 41% from the September 27 premiere of Last Resort, a show that is now cancelled, and 38% from the March 15 premiere of Missing. That still pales compared to the January 31 premiere of the now cancelled Do No Harm on NBC which got a 0.9/3) and was the lowest rated in-season premiere ever of any scripted show on the any of the Big Four networks.

    I'm really sorry to hear that I actually enjoyed the show. I thought it was a fun blend of Dan Brown, National Treasure and Raiders of the Lost Ark. I was hoping to see how it all turned out

    Re: Zero Hour

    I think there are too many shows on Thursday, I watch Vampire Diaries, Person of Interest and Project Runway that night. I was planning on catching up on Zero Hour but now it seems I don't have too. Too bad I do think that there should be other options for viewers who don't want to watch American Idol.

    Re: Zero Hour

    The show hasn't been canceled. It was only Do No Harm that was canceled after 2 episodes. The two were mentioned in several articles together, so maybe that's where the confusion is coming from. There's nothing out there yet about Zero Hour being canceled.

    Of course, with such low ratings, it probably WILL be, but nothing is official. I'd hope that the popularity of Anthony Edwards would compel ABC to give it more of a chance. Weird that it didn't do well, considering that it's the lead-in for Gray's Anatomy. Maybe lots of people were tuned in for the Survivor premiere Networks are taking OnDemand numbers into their decisions now, so I hope lots of people went and watched the premiere OnDemand.

    I DVRd it and watched it last night. Yeah, to me it seemed a bit DaVinci Code like. Hmmm....

    Anyway, I gave it a C and decided not to watch it again. I'm watching and DVRing other shows on Thursday nights. Too bad because I really like Anthony Edwards.

    I like the show despite it's resemblance to other books/movies and am glad it has not been cancelled. I'm betting the story will get more and more interesting as it unfolds, if given the chance.

    I thought it was a terrible night for the premiere. Episode 1 is airing again tonight at 9:00 after Revenge. So maybe ABC thought the same thing and are giving it another chance. I hope so.

    Re: Zero Hour

    I'm not sure yet; I watched the first episode and do like the cast. It's an interesting premise, so I'll give it several more episodes to grab me.
