fancygirl: I'm loving FlashForward now. Any scoop?

I'm hearing good things about the April 29 and May 6 episodes. As you know, April 29 is the blackout date, and although the schedule was changed somewhat so April 29 (which is a Thursday) won't happen exactly on that day, a source tells me we may get the beginning of the April 29 happenings on April 29, and then we see what is set in motion on May 6. More importantly, I'm hearing there is most definitely a chance FlashForward will be renewed, because it actually does fairly well overseas and doesn't hemorrhage as much money as you'd think. A source tells me, "This is a rare case where a low domestic performer could get a surprise pickup." We'll find out May 18, when ABC announces its schedule.
That sounds encouraging, but according to the people at tvbythenumbers this is only false hope. We'll see how it goes, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I have the feeling they might renew FF for a mid season. Is not the first time that i read that ABC is not ready to give up on Flahforward, but who knows?

That might not be a bad idea. Maybe like 5 or so episodes? That's probably what it should have been. 22 episodes was probably just too much. Especially with an April 28 2010 doomsday date.

I like the idea of it coming back as a mid-season show, if it comes back for a 2nd season. It might work better with a shorter episode schedule, like they do with most cable shows.

Yeah I read that to at tvbythenumbers.

Not sure what to think. FF wasn't on the SaveOurShow list at E! was it?

Part of me says this is E! and Kristen. She is blind and dumb most of the time!

Yeah, I don't know if I trust tvbythenumbers completely; they kept on insisting Castle wasn't gonna make it. Even as the numbers started improving. I know that's only one instance but it's a big one imo.

I know I don't trust Kristen @ E!, but not positive if I trust tvbythenumbers either. Oh well. Just gotta wait and pray.

Ratings are out and it's another series low:

Quote:
8:00 ABC FlashForward 4.991 million viewers (18-49: 1.4/5)

I think many people have tuned out because they were angry at the Janis reveal. I liked it, but I admit this is the minority opinion.

FF didn't make the second round, but I don't think it matters much. Terminator won the poll with 70% last year and it was still cancelled.

Agreed. If Flash Forward was getting consistent ratings of 2,0 - 2,4 in the demo (like Fringe on Fox) then I could see how international sales could get the show a second season. But at a 1,4? I really can't see that happening.

ETA:

Finals are out:

New Flash Forward podcast is up: FlashForward S01E16: The Garden of Forking Paths: Podcast: The Garden of Forking Paths | MovieWeb

It's mostly the actors talking about the Mark/Olivia/Lloyd love triangle.
