Eyes Canceled

Eyes with Tim Daly has been a clever show with no formula from the get go. The first time I accidentally watched it (meaning, I was in bed and it was on), I got hooked. Nothing about the show is predictable and the good guys have secrets. What is ABC thinking? Seinfeld and Cheers didn’t get off to a strong start and it took a lot more than five episodes for them to get running.

ABC has not announced whether or not it plans to run the remaining episodes. 13 are in the can. I turned on to watch it last Wednesday and saw Primetime Live come on instead. I couldn’t imagine why “Fallen Idol” would deserve to pre-empt the show. But now we know why. A shame. Tim Daly’s character provides a refreshing change. He’s smooth. He’s funny. He’s got kinks in his armor.

    There’s a small grassroots movement going on to capture ABC’s attention and let them know that there is an audience for intelligent, well-written television. You can find out more at http://www.saveeyes.com

    From everything I’ve heard about the show it was great and was going to be successful. Oh well.

    But then I always fall in love with shows that get canceled. And most of them they don’t show the rest of the season. Le Sigh.

    Where did you find this news?
    I had been under the impression that the preemption was because they wnted to get that AI expose on.

    Yes Meryl, please provide the link / quote where you got the news from.

    It stinks but it’s link

    What’s unfortunate is that this show had some great actors, compelling plots and Tim Daly definitely had a great character that could have been expanded on for seasons to come.

    Went to the website http://www.saveyes.com, signed that petition but boy am I miffed that a network doesn’t know a good show when it sees it.

    Don’t know if anyone can answer this question, but can another network pick up a show like this or is it ABC’s property for a period of time? I could see TNT doing well with this show.

    How do I get ABC to bring back EYES? It was a clever and funny show that I truly looked forward to. Tim Daly is so cute and the show’s cast gives us intelligent tv we need in this messy sea of overplayed reality tv.

    I really liked Eyes. It was everything that’s been said here. It was, as a saying goes in Japanese, “a crane on a heap of garbage.” I wrote to ABC to bring it back. Maybe if enough people did so, it would happen?
