"Traveler" (2007) TV-Series 2007-????
Pay attention to the 4 question marks above.
The "TV powers that be", also known as "Idiots", are at it again.
Do you remember the phrase? "Just keep throwing crap at the wall and see what 'sticks'.
It seems the networks "Don't Even Know" when the season starts.
24 just had it's season finale this past monday and it will return...in January...
That's why the New Traveler series, on channel 7 just started May 30th.
If you check the a Website about the show, it appears the guys on the "run" won't be running long.
The 9 episodes the network okayed, has been trimmed to 6.
And some of the episodes are being "reshot".
ABC, the station that Sank "Surface" seems dead-set on GIVING TV programming to the New Media darling, the Internet.
CBS, just did the same with Jericho, and is getting truck-loads of "Nuts" from unhappy "fans". (See previous post).
And NBC, the one hit wonder-station, just gave "Studio 60" (one of the most intelligent programs on TV) its pink-slip.
For all it's HD puffery, network tv is no longer a "field of dreams".
It's devolving into snarkmanship on The View, to a lazy-susan of "game" or "reality" shows.
No wonder HBO wins all the awards.
