FOX Cancels Terra Nova


Terra Nova TV Series PosterI have to admit, I gave up on Fox’s “Terra Nova” pretty much early on. After the second episode, in fact. Wait, or was it after the third episode? Honestly, the show is so unmemorable, I don’t actually remember when I removed it from my DVR list. I actually have a couple of unwatched episodes on my box that I really don’t have any interest in actually watching one of these days.

As it turns out, the suits at Fox feels the same way: the network has officially axed the expensive sci-fi show.

Not to be deterred, though, 20th Century Fox TV, the people who produces “Terra Nova”, plans on shopping the show to other networks. That seems like a fool’s errand, as I was amazed Fox was willing to shell out the reported $4 million per episode on the show to begin with. Them dinosaurs don’t show up on the screen by themselves, you know.

Surprisingly, “Terra Nova” didn’t really do all that poorly in the ratings. The show was averaging 10.1 million viewers and a 3.6 adult demo rating — that is, once you add in a week of DVR playback. I’m not a TV nerd to know what that means, but 10.1 million sounds like an awful lot of viewers. But not enough for the $4 million per that Fox shells out for the show’s episodes, apparently.

    Terra nova was a cool concept but a really really lame show. I think i would of liked it better if the main character was a badass and not a throwback to the father off the brady bunch.

      He was a bad ass! But he was a father too. The two arent mutually exclusive! John McClane! Hello! I liked the show but agree there wasn’t enough payoff. They really tried to stretch the drama out and leave it mysterious but didn’t answer enough questions until too late. Ah well.
