    Apparently they're trying to shop Terra Nova around to other networks but as we all know that rarely works.

    This might, maybe, possibly make the chances of a final season for Fringe more likely. They will need something to put on Fridays in the 'death slot'.

    On the plus side they are actively trying to sell the rights to other networks rather than canning it and not letting anyone else have it ala: SGU.

    Its unlikely but hoepfully we may see Terra Nova again.
    I got nothing!

    This is a shame.
    I quite enjoyed Terra Nova, and was interested to see where it would go in the 2nd season.
    Also quite liked the characters.
    Ah well, another good television show gone...

    Also...
    Fox had to make the decision early so the show could make a fall return if renewed.
    Didnt they take ages to make a decision anyway?

    Considering the show launched in September and ended in December, I'd say they took their sweet time making a decision.

    I originally watched the premiere when it first aired and I was not impressed. Recently I gave it another try and was surprised to find I quite enjoyed the show. It isn't the best, but still fun to watch, plus there's dinosaurs.

    There's a recent example about a show that got successfully shopped around. NBC cancelled Southland after 1.5 seasons and then it got picked up by TNT. The show is now in its fourth season and bringing in good numbers for TNT. So if another smaller network sees some potential in the show there is a chance.

    From what I've read the show's numbers were decent but not great, so who knows.

    But the fact that you can pretty much name on one hand the shows that have successfully been shopped around--Futurama, Southland, maybe one or two others--bodes poorly for the possibility of Terra Nova being acquired by anyone else.

    I just hate that 10.1 million viewers average wasn't enough...Think of how many networks would kill for that amount of viewers per episode...

    You forgot Stargate, the show changes hands and had another 12 seasons.

    Its the average not the premiere that determines the show. Its a given the pilots score high numbers

    I blame Lucas! He must have used the badlands to send the Fox Bigwigs a message on a rockside after he found out his dad wanted to continue existing and he said "NU-UH old man"

    I did forget that one. But again, the exception that proves the rule: the fact that we can name a couple and no more just goes to show--this almost never happens.

    Well yes. But a high-rating pilot will shift that average upward, particularly since high-rating pilots tend to indicate high start point to taper off from and not usually a freefall drop from there. But you're right--it's that average which decides the fate of the show, not one single episode.

    I am very upset that FOX made the decision that they did. My wife won't be very happy either when I tell her tomorrow.

    I wonder if 20th Century Fox is going to get the show taken up by another network, even on premium cable...
