"Drive" Death Watch: How Many Episodes Will It Get?

"Drive" Death Watch: How Many Episodes Will It Get?

Fox's new serial drama, "Drive," airs its third episode tonight as part of a whirlwind three-hours-in-two-nights premiere. The show, which I think is the TV equivalent of a summer movie, has been heavily promoted by Fox, with commercials during "American Idol" and an interactive Web site.

However, it's been a tough season for serial dramas, with "The Nine," "Day Break," "Vanished," and others tanking after a few episodes. It's also been a tough few months for new shows in general: Witness the demise of "The Wedding Bells," "The Black Donnellys" and, most recently, "In Case of Emergency." Plus, creator Tim Minear has had two other series ("Wonderfalls" and "Firefly") canceled by Fox — and "Firefly" starred "Drive"'s leading man, Nathan Fillion.

Which leads me to ask: Will "Drive" be the rare breakthrough serial hit like "Lost" or "24"? Or will it land on the trash heap a few weeks from now?
