Just saw the season one finale a few weeks ago, excellent stuff.
It's too bad, but people just weren't watching it. People will say it's the timeslot, but Special Victims Unit and Third Watch have both done much better in that slot.
Maybe if NBC would have renamed it:
Law & Order: Boomtown
it might have survived.
It's amazing that networks haven't been willing to stick with shows longer- there are dozens of examples of "huge money maker" shows like Cheers and Cosby that had rough ratings for the first couple years.
Seems like they's rather have a hit that burns out quickly than stick with a show and make more money in the long term.
I was thinking the same thing Patrick. I guess the bright side is that the box set should be cheap.
They should have not tinkered with the show. I missed the reporter, and did not come back to the show this year because of it.
That being said, there had to be room on a network for this show when we are stuck with crud like The District and Hack, We can't find a slot for Boomtown?
I loved the show last year and only managed to catch a couple minutes this year, pretty dissapointed that they cancelled it.
So a .6 difference in ratings is what kept Boomtown off the air? The difference between doing well and being gone is 3 millions viewers?
It sucks that 6 or 7 million loyal viewers isn't enough to keep a good show on the air. If we chipped in $10 each we could pay for a whole season ourselves (but they have to give us free DVDs of the show).
It also sucks that they probably won't air the remaining four episodes. Like they can't spare time even on a Saturday night, which the networks don't care about anyway. Can't disrupt those Law & Order marathons...
