    I don’t think Designated Survivor will see a season 3 at this rate. They have made some changes this season that haven’t set well with loyal viewers.

    Its not even competitive with PD or CM

    • Hello Larry

      You’re with me then Garebelman I do not see a season 3 for Designated Survivor, it’s in dangerous territory now and in Nashville territory as well. Usually when a show is renewed for its 3rd season it usually comes back for a 4th automatically and I don’t think ABC will commit to it with these poor ratings plus ABC has found The Good Doctor so ABC will probably want room for new dramas next season. It’s far behind PD and CM right now.

      Another thing I want to say is PD is coming out stronger than CM right now, if SEAL Team continues to slip will they put CM back on at 9pm?

      • renamoretti1

        I hope you’re right that finding a single solitary show with solid ratings will cause Channing Dungey to quit renewing her flops wholesale… 🙂

        Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway ;P) I very much doubt it…

        • Hello Larry

          Yeah that’s my hope that’s why it’s great to see shows get solid ratings because it gets rid of the ones that deserve to see another day of life.

          Look so far what we’ve seen out of Dungey she gives me no hope that will happen I will be shocked if it does happen.

          • renamoretti1

            Agreed of course. 🙂

            The logic for killing flops and trying anything else is what happened to Steve McPherson at ABC. He had no clue yet lucked into finding 2 1/2 hits in one season. If you try enough shows, you may make mistakes and not kill all of them creatively at the pilot stage…

          • Hello Larry

            Very true and Steve McPherson is a perfect example man that dude was terrible. You’re right he lucked into finding a couple of hits and it really wasn’t deserved. I kind of knew Desperate Housewives would be a hit but Lost and Grey’s Anatomy were surprising. Overall he still did a terrible job and you’re right the reason why he didn’t find more hits like a Fred Silverman or Brandon Tartikoff is because the guy killed the pilots he found.

          • renamoretti1

            I was told some of the “creative” things he was telling people during the making of the pilots and it was hair-raising.

            I never understood the interest in Lost. I lasted 5 minutes through the pilot. The casting by adding every demographic group just left me befuddled. It sitll managed to do well one season and then had to be relaunched all the time and never re-run (I doubt it ended up making money).

            Desperate Housewives, I don’t like, but I get why it worked. Same with Gray’s.
