For the 21st year, USA Today is trying to find out what shows viewers would really like to save from cancellation. Last year's winner in the "Save our Shows" poll was NBC's Timeless. It had been cancelled by the network, but got a reprieve in part due to the support of its fans in this poll. So it makes a difference with the network brass.
This year, Timeless is on the chopping block again; and it probably won't be as easy to save the show a second time. But USA Today recently released its "Save Our Shows" leader board, and Timeless is once again getting a lot of fan support. [Note to fans: The network is more likely to save Timeless if you actually watch it, not just vote for it].
I watched a couple episodes of that show, and... meh.
But I like a couple of other shows that are doing well in this year's polling. Both ABC's Designated Survivor and NBC's The Blacklist are among the poll leaders. I'm not surprised that the show about a reluctant President is on the endangered list; Kiefer Sutherland's Designated Survivor never made the big splash of some network shows.
Shows like The Blacklist. Have people given up on this show? NBC featured the show starring James Spader in its prime post-Super Bowl slot a couple of years ago, so I thought it was doing really well. Apparently, it's on the bubble. And it's still one of my top shows on a broadcast network.
