    Oh wow. Hopefully Fox has a contingency plan for Fridays at 9 in the fall.

  • Don't ratings typically fall after an initial outing, with more people usually tuning in for a premier than those who actually stay?

    I agree with Ace, hope Fox has a back-up plan!

  • I for one don't understand why Fox didn't premiere THE GOOD GUYS after IDOL to leverage the show's audience.

    I was wondering the exact same thing. It certainly worked last year for Glee.
