how many people watched friends? how many watched joey? spin offs just have a history of failure. often it differs from the original show in some way or another, which the viewer should expect for good reason, but still hung onto the hope that it will be exactly the same as the original, only to be disappointed when they watch it.
I wouldn't say spin offs necessarily doomed to fail. some have missed, yes, but just as many are widely successful. for every joey there's a frazier (cheers), or angel (buffy the vampire slayer), the Colbert report (daily show), and or course, all the different CSIs, Law and Orders, and NCISs. Heck even the main NCIS was a spinoff (JAG). oh, and what about the different star trek series?

This show has potential to be a great show, but they have to keep it watchable throughout. You can't just do interesting episodes at the very end of the season. Alas, I'll still watch no matter how bad it is, nothing better to do on Sunday nights

I think being on Sunday night has helped this show dramatically. I dunno, for me it's getting to the point I almost feel over it, but like you will probably continue to watch because what else am I doing on a Sunday night? Until of course my gf goes to sleep and I spend the rest of the night playing COD zombies with my Arizona pals.

I am with you.... last season lost me completely. They took what could of been an awesome story line and made it all warm and fuzzy. Worse still they made the main antagonist not pay for his "crimes" but just run off like Dick Dastardly but with out Muttley.... Oh wait... He had a Muttley.



I can't find the image any more... but Season threes ending all it wold of needed was The Governor talking to his only living henchman and going "COME MUTTLEY!" Jump into his truck and speed off.
