    Fox probably needed more room for reality TV.

    I'll go with the first option, but thats since "Fox doesn't know a good show when they see one" wasn't an option.

    I wish there was an other... I really think it was because they put it in a crappy time slot! You don't put a show whose major demographic is 18-24 year olds on Friday nights at 9pm. :mad:

    But I put Fox reality shows because that is probably to blame as well!

    Fox reality TV shows... *grumble grumble*

    Though some of the options did make me laugh there for a bit... :p

    I love me some kittens.

    I've never seen the show, so I wouldn't know. Saw the movie and thought it was vastly overrated.

    If the choice 'FOX are morons and don't know a great show in front of them', I would've voted for that.

    Because they wanted to put more Reality on TV AND they don't know a good thing when they have it. [face_tired]

    This poll confuses me.

    I don't know if it's actually serious or not. o_O

    Erm, I thought it was more a matter of ratings that failed to give the show a chance to find its footing/niche? My bad. :p

    That said, I voted for "more room for reality shows" of the options presented.

    No, I didn't propose it as serious, though you're welcome to look at it that way.:p

    On Friday? No reality TV shows then. It was just sheer incompetence.

    Fox screwed them over, just like they do to anything other than shows that fit into their tiny hands.

    <-- (has much stronger words for Fox, but won't share them here)

    I suppose SF is more expensive to produce, but they gave the series no chance to build an audience.
