The CW Cancels Its First Show

The CW, the network born out of the merger between the WB and UPN, has cancelled its first show. The show in question is the hour long drama Runaway. The show centred on a family who must go on the run after their father is falsely accused of murder. The CW had moved the show from Monday nights to Sunday nights, but apparently it did not help. Ratings did not improve and it became the first show ever to be cancelled by the new network.

Anyhow, I must admit that I find this interesting. Already three hour long dramas are gone (Smith, Kidnapped, and Runaway). I may be wrong, but I seem to recall that usually sitcoms are the first to fall beneath the axe. And more often than not, it seems as if it is sitcoms that are on Fox...

I'm not keeping track of the shows at all. I have, however, bought into a couple of the new ones including "Jerico" and "Ugly Betty" and from the most recent news, sounds like both of these have been greenlighted for an entire season!
