So it would seem that main stream TV is not liking the sci-fi genre this season. ratings are down near 17% and shows such as Heroes, Smallville and Fringe are taking the biggest hits. These shows are down from last year and word has it that both fringe and Heroes are both close to cancellation if not already done. Heroes has been struggling for a few years now but NBC network has been keeping it on life support in the hopes it would regain its audience but the writing continues to be weak along with support from the studios and not to mention support from the fans, which seems to have dwindled as well. I was one of the die- hards, who held on past when I should have thrown in the towel. I believe that if the writers and studio would have listened to the fans this show could have continued on for years in the top 10 slot, but they would rather write it into an early grave. Fringe on the other hand is a well written show but had the bad luck of being sold to the Fox network, who in my opinion loves to kill scifi shows, just ask Joss Whedon after the cancellation of Dollhouse, the second show he has had yanked out from under him by the Fox Network. I hope at least Fringe survives for another season, but I am afraid Heroes is finished since I heard that NBC told the writers to finish up story lines. The good news is Chuck is coming back in January, so at least folks like me have something sci-fish (Is that a word?) to watch. There is good news for ABC network with high ratings for the Flash Foward and the reboot of the 80s show V, (which I love by the way). So lets hope scifi shows climb out of the toilet with ratings for our favorite genre.
