While we understand that there are a number of other summer shows out there still in a bit of limbo these are the two shows we’re currently obsessed with the most. In each case, it’s been more than a month since the summer season ended and we’re nearing judgment day rapidly. There’s only so long that networks can hold off renewals without having to delay future seasons! The writers need time in order to get back to work just like the actors also need to know whether or not they should start looking for some employment elsewhere.
Earlier this week, the bad news was handed down for Reverie on NBC — for this week, Election Day actually looked like the perfect time for networks to bury their cancellation announcements in order to duck-and-cover on some of the backlash. Yet, it’s going to be hard for either ABC or CBS, respectively, to hide from Take Two or Salvation fans. These two shows have formed a tight support base in a short period of time and we imagine that the fan rallies are only going to continue while we await announcements.
The big question worth pondering for now is this: Is it a good thing to have to wait so long? Should we actually see this as some sort of perverse, positive sign that both shows are coming back?
The case for it – A long wait may mean that there are serious negotiations going on behind the scenes to bring the show back. Given that the live ratings for both Take Two and Salvation are far from fantastic, there could be budgetary or creative discussions going on. Also, it does leave a little bit more time for fans to rally and voice their thoughts … right?
The case against it – You can also argue that the long wait for a renewal decision is the network’s way of waiting for so long that there’s less of a backlash. We don’t buy into this too much, though. If a network really thinks that no one will be that upset that a given show is ending, why not just cancel it earlier and deal with whatever criticism you get?
Our ultimate feeling is this: If a network doesn’t believe in the future of a show, they’ll just kick it to the curb. The long wait for a renewal is a welcome sign, but by no means is it a guarantee that good things are going to come down the line.
