“The Return of Jezebel James” Canceled March 24, 2008 11:19 pm

Fox has canceled their freshman comedy The Return of Jezebel James due to poor ratings.  For the time being, the network has slotted repeats of House to fill in for the pulled series.  ‘Jezebel James’ failed to attract an audience from day one, averaging just 3.13M viewers and a 1.1/4 A18-49 rating/share through three aired episodes.

Ourageous! I really liked all three of the episodes and since it was only meant to last 4 more eps, I’d like to watch those other four in a way or another. If the show doesn’t get resumed, they need to let AS-P fans watch the rest of this.

I agree 100%. It really wasn’t a bad show at all compared to the other crap on T.V. are there any plans for the rest of the episodes to be viewed in any other way, shape or form?

Networks need to use some common sense. With networks having quick triggers on new shows, viewers will not invest their time into watching a show that may be cancelled at any time. I personally have not watched this show, because I myself wanted to “wait and see” before getting hooked on it.

To add to that networks need to provide these shows with a one episode “finale” clause if cancelled. This would also give viewers some sense that the episodes that they do watch will “end” in something if they do decide to watch a new show.

Why haven’t I watched single episode of Sarah Connor? I wanted to see if the networks cancelled it first. If it survives, I pick up the DVD set when it come out to “catch up” or possibly catch it midstream.

Networks- order a “complete” season and commit to it. Have some procedure to air the unaired episodes if you get cold feet. Throw it on another channel, air it late at night, put it online whatever…. just make sure you provide closure to all shows you put on.

I turned on my tivo after arriving home from dinner and to my horror, The Return of Jezebel James was not on my “Now Playing List”.
I really liked the show, Lauren Ambrose was awesome and they only had 30 minutes per episode. UNFAIR~
