entertainment industry coach question 593:Why do some shows like Lone Star get cancelled so fast?
That would be a great question for Fox. Personally, I was enjoying it (which as my loyal readers know is the kiss of death- although No Ordinary Family got a few more episodes ordered yay!).
Look, it's about ratings/money. Bottom line. Things have changed. If networks were axing shows like they do now back when Seinfeld and Friends were on, they would have been axed in the first season.
If you're asking for personal reasons like Jimmy is cute (I told him he looks like a younger, cuter George Clooney and he acted like he'd never heard it before, did I mention humble and sweet?) then I really can't give you a good answer. But if you have a serious interest in the networks and how and why they make the decisions they do, then I suggest you seek out mentors in that area.
I also get a lot of "political" insight from my writer friends, but it's different for every show.
