"Drive" Gets Parked, While FX Shows Get Good News

"Drive" Gets Parked, While FX Shows Get Good News

Well, the 37 of you who said "Drive" would be off the air within five episodes were right: Fox slammed the brakes on the show today, according to Variety. None of the four episodes that aired got good ratings, but this week's situation was particularly dire: The show finished fourth in its time slot, with the fewest viewers yet.

I didn't think the first episode was that bad, but it also didn't compel me to watch again. I guess it's official that Tim Minear + Nathan Fillion + Fox = early death, as I'm sure "Firefly" fans can attest. Two more episodes of "Drive" were produced, and Fox hasn't announced whether they'll be shown on TV or only online. In the meantime, reruns of "House" will be filling "Drive"'s spot.

Fans of "Dirt" and "The Riches" got better news today, though: The FX president said he expects both shows to get second seasons. While I like "The Riches" more than I liked "Dirt," I'm glad to see FX continuing its tradition of supporting unusual, edgy shows.

Um... FOX does HOUSE! Which is one of the BEST SHOWS ON TV! i'm just saying though. I was never inclined to watch Drive. Um...Didn't watch dirt either. I'm sorry they were showing the opening or previews for it in Sept of last year every two seconds. made me not want to watch it on principle. ********************************************************* Whoever said "It is better to have loved and lost than, to not have loved at all," NEEDS to be SHOT!

This is a shame. I love Nathan Fillion and there was a Dodge Charger in the show, although it wasn't as cool as mine. :)

I'm so upset about Drive. The only good thing Fox has done for TV is 24. I mean, Drive is a really interesting show. Come on!

I'm so glad Dirt was picked up for a second season, the first season was great, and completely unique, so I have no doubt that the second season will be equally good.
