The Voice > NBC to Place Revolution on Four-Month Hiatus > Comments Page 2
Show needs a complete revamp. Either do away with Charlie or get another actress. She is completely unlikable. And the story line is ridiculous. The neverending Quest for Danny is lame at best. Ditch the fat guy or at least do something with his character. The constant whining about family and we have to save Danny got old on the first episode. And yes I watch this pitiful show every week because I keep hoping they will blow up Charlie or something.
4 months!! I don't mind waiting 4 months for a new season but 4 months to finish the first season!! I remember Prison Break doing this to me on the first season and I never went back. Looking like I'll be doing the same again. 4 months pfft!
This has become a pretty normal process the last few years - the "fall finale". The thinking is people will be more annoyed by frequent breaks for repeats. Most shows do 22 to 24 episodes in a season, but the actual TV season is 35 weeks.
The choice is to take a complete break for a longer stretch, or to keep interrupting the flow with reruns (more often what happens with sitcoms). It's still a risky move, and judging from the responses here, it shows they stand to lose a chunk of the hard won audience they got for a new show by doing it.
It's not as if they're going to raise the budget and allow any show to make enough episodes to fill the season with. That hasn't happened since the 60s.
I'm REALLY not happy about a four month "hiatus" this is my all time favorite show! How am I to get my weekly Billy Burke fix now?!!!
Remember the reboot of V with Morena Bacarrin that they put on hiatus for 4 months after five or so episodes? It was a hit at launch but the strategy did not work and the series ended after a single season. Looks like nothing was learned from that SNAFU...
What an incredibly stupid move! a 4 month hiatus!?! Are they serious?!! This show will die now.
Kill it, kill it with hiatus hahaha!
This is so stupid I hate you NBC I love revolution it's a great show with so much potential'........why?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!so dumb
What a dumb move ,seriously who came with that idea ?
DIES NBC NOT REMEMBER WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO HEROES?!?!? DUMBASSES
yeah theres no way im going to watch this in march. see ya! who runs the stuff at nbc?!
I f**king hate tv networks.
This is a stupid move. thinking that it's the voice that is the reason for it's success. It may help it but I don't watch most of these stupid reality shows. I want to watch compelling fiction.
Now i have to wait until spring for more of this show. I don't think so.
winter is for staying in watching tv spring summer is for enjoying the sunlight.
you just killed what could have been a great long running show NBC!
CBS better not do this to Elementary or Vegas the two other "major Network" shows that I like this season? (does season even apply anymore?).
How many times do they have to do the same thing, and get the same result, before they stop doing it? how many shows have died from "Hiatus"? Thats the end of revolution! guaranteed! I might as well stop watching now...
Besides, with kids sports schedules, people stop watching TV in early MAY now, so running it into the summer? HOW DUMB IS THAT? We'll be at camp and since Digital TV started we dont even HAVE a TV at the camp so thanks NBC for ruining another good show, and playing it at a time when many people cant even watch it.
Very dumb choice I think.
The ratings of this are already going down (I stoped watching after episode 4) en now they expect people to wait for FOUR MONTHS?
The only smart thing about this is that it's gonna air after The Voice again, so Im sure it will still have OK ratings, but its gonna lose some I think aswell
This doesn't seem smart (especially because the last two episodes are finally getting good). The only thing I can hope is that they told the showrunners this beforehand so they could conceivably set up the show like a British show or into like chapters (I know Grimm isn't going on a really long hiatus, but they have been clear this is a mid season finale and have at least one storyline that can end and the seed work for setting up enough of a story, but not a cliff hanger, that will keep newcomers interested). Like, they really ought to either save Danny or have him no longer be an issue (yes, kill him) and have some forward movement (like, they have added Danny, Jason, and Rachel and maybe lost someone or two and are running toward other of the nations). But they have to resolve something and leave something that makes the promise going forward good. I think both Flash Forward, Alcatraz and the Event left too much of a cliff hanger that any fence sitters were like I don't care tha
NBC executives have killed ao many shows in the last five or six years what's another one. Seriously they should all be fired and replaced by monkeys randomly picking shows from an idea board and placing them in timeslots.
Isn't this what happened with Flash Forward and The Event...it spelled the end for both series but maybe The Voice lead in will save Revolution. It's a shame because I was curious to see who it would do without NBC's most powerful lead in.
