ABC Chooses Between FlashForward and V

at .  Updated at . Comments

Considering their similar, science fiction-based storylines - along with their disappointing ratings - FlashForward and V were never both gonna end up on ABC's fall schedule.

Now, just a few days before the network officially announces its full slate of renewals and cancelations, it has made its decision: Goodbye, FlashForward. Hello, V!

Both dramas struggled to find a loyal fan base after going on a multi-month hiatus between December and March. But V has averaged about one million more viewers than FlashForward and, simply put, is a better show.

The former airs its first season finale next week and you can check out a clip from "Red Sky" now:

I've just finished wathching the 23 E of flash Forward, wha! such a long time i haven't been so exited. Shame we won't have an other serie. I really liked it, so to prouve i've started watching 2days ago.......
V is not as good. Sorry but their play is bad, feel sorry again for my heroes, i got into it.


That is good news. I think this show (V) is really picking up the pace.
