Two Guys, a Girl and a TV Set

Three college friends out in the world, filling the void with television…and loving it.

NBC Traumatized

Posted by Mr. Feeny on October 29, 2009

Seriously. They only have 10 hours of content to fill with this Jay Leno thing. And already they’ve canned two of those 10. Cop drama Southland got the axe earlier this month, before even starting its second season. And now, new medical drama, Trauma, has officially been canceled. If you watched its first few episodes (instead of Dancing, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, Lie to Me or Gossip Girl), don’t worry. You’ll get some more before they yank it. Trauma will finish off its 13-episode order before leaving the lineup. And if you’re a fan of Chuck, this is good news for you. More episodes of the geeky secret agent dramedy have been ordered.

I thought Trauma lacked the flash its special effects tried to provide. Only one character appealed to me in the premiere, and admittedly, I haven’t watched it since. This could be an earlier sign, by the way, that this is Heroes‘ last season. The sci-fi drama has been getting the exact same ratings as Trauma. Only it has a devoted fanbase…the few million who actually stuck around as it got bad.

Also, NBC has announced full seasons for Mercy (surprising), Community (still over-rated) and Parks & Recreation (solid show, but pulling in no viewers).

    I just talked to someone who loves Mercy. Interesting. She’s interested in the fact that most of the nurses portrayed are working class. Which is an interesting point. It still didn’t make me like the show, but I suppose this is something that is new about it. I agree the Community is overrated.
