Which new show commercials have you rolling you eyes and already predicting a swift demise? Play for points!
- Pick 5 brand new shows you think are destined to expire within 6 episodes. Shows that are not in their first season will not count for points. For an additional point bonus you make pick a sixth show.
- All eligible shows listed below
Please limit your picks to shows on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and the CW* that will premiere in September or October (only because cable channels tend not to start their shows in September/October, and pay-cable channels are less likely for a quick cancel.) Network mid-season replacements like The Dollhouse or Surviving Suburbia are out, too, sorry.
You have until midnight 9.12.08 to make your picks
Each show is potentially worth six points. One point is subtracted per week the show airs, meaning that if you pick a show cancelled after two episodes, it’ll be worth more than your pick cancelled at week six.
If you list a show that premieres before you make your pick, that show will be eligible for a maximum of five points, so sloth is not recommended (for example, Fringe airs tomorrow so if you wait until late in the week you’ll lose a point, and 90210 will already only earn you five points today).
Any show you picked that isn’t cancelled within six episodes is worth zero points, but will not otherwise adversely affect your score.
An additional point will be given for the poster(s) who correctly predict the demise of the most shows. Another additional point will be awarded if anyone is the only one to pick a show that no one else does. If your bonus pick is the first cancelled on your list, you will earn the appropriate points for it plus one additional point. But only if it’s cancelled first.
Final scores will be announced early December if anyone picks a show premiering in late October, potentially sooner otherwise.
