  1. Designated Survivor finale was very tense. I have to wait until March to find out what happened in that end scene?? I hate these crazy waits that ABC has been doing as of late. A lot of folks will FORGET stuff in that time frame and may not even come back at all.

    • Agree with you (again!!!) 🙂

      That idea of having a “Fall Finale” is the opposite of “sustaining momentum”.

      It serves failing shows with ultra-low re-run value hide their weakness, but it does nothing to help shows that need to catch on.

  2. Those aren’t good numbers for Star (to be fair I had no idea it was on so FOX didn’t spend much promoting it…)

    On a night with no opposition to do so little…

    And Empire confirms it was a one season and done show (not surprising given its concept was fit for a miniseries).

    FOX will make another 5 seasons of it, however, so don’t panic fans…
