FlashForward on Fringe of Being Scrubbed?
The Hollywood Reporter has compiled a list of “endangered shows” that may not be renewed, including several that air here in HD — FlashForward, Fringe, V — and many that should (24, Trauma, Heroes, Supernatural, Smallville, Chuck, Scrubs).
At least some of them are starting to emerge on Blu-ray, with Fringe already out and seasons two of Chuck, and eight of Smallville, slated for April 7 from Warner Home Video, and season four of Supernatural due mid-year.
As for FlashForward’s popularity here, last week’s premiere only narrowly beat TV3′s Lie to Me but this week’s instalment widened the gap markedly.
It drew nearly twice as many 18-39 year-olds, who are TV2′s core audience, and was comfortably ahead in TV3′s 18-49 demo, too. (Stablemate Lost also found more viewers this week and out-rated TV3′s SVU.)
If you’ve missed any of the FlashForward episodes, TV2 screens same-week repeats 10.30pm Sundays and will re-run the first three episodes as its Sunday midday movie on February 28.
