DRIVE in Fox’s Parking Lot?

April 25, 2007 by  

Still waiting for more on this, but it seems that Fox’s new thrill ride DRIVE has been pulled from it’s Monday night time slot.  According to Kristin Veitch, there are 2 remaining episodes that have been shot but have not yet aired.  Looks like we are going to have to sit tight and see how this one turns out.  I guess you can blame me for DRIVE being pulled – because the minute I say I really like a show it seems to end up being pulled from the schedule.  Ugh.

    Yeah, the Drive section of the FOX website says “Stay Tuned: Final 2 episodes to air this summer”

    Dammit — I was just starting to get into it.

    I swear, over at TV Addict I’m pretty sure I remember him saying this would happen.

    The pilot was awesome…I’ll admit, it did seem to dip a little, but it was still better than some of the other stuff out there right now.

    Is it just me or does this seem to happen alot on Fox…seems like everytime I like one of thier shows they cancel it. I think my new philosophy is to NOT watch the channel anymore.

    This show has been can canceled according to The Futon Critic –

    I can not believe that Fox would spend as much time and money pushing this show, which I liked a lot, and then pull it after 3 shows/2 weeks. Fox has a history of killing shows after 1-4 episodes and it is ridiculous. Without American Idol, which I don’t watch, they would be dead.

    Mike – outside of Idol, shows like House and 24 keep FOX alive, that’s for sure. I love both of those shows (oh, and i like Bones)!

    Dang it. Why does this show have to be cancelled?! My love for Nathan Fillion…i just…this sucks!

    You’re right, Kris. House and 24 are hot too. I forgot about those 2 for some reason. After the Firefly issue that Fox created I have little love for them… I know that TV programming is a tough science, but I just wish that some of the networks respected the audience more and allowed some more time for shows to grow an audience.

    Anytime a new show comes on TV, I ALWAYS look to see if it’s on Fox. If it is on Fox, there’s a 95% chance you’ll only get to see 4 episodes. I’m surprised Prison Break wasn’t pulled. The first time I saw a trailer for Drive, I had the exact same thought as I had for The Nine. That is going to be amazing, but it should be a movie. It’ll never last on tv.

    I’m not surprised at all they pulled it, but def disappointed. Love Fillion (when is someone going to put him on a hit?) and Melanie Lynskey.

    Mike – Oh my gosh, Firefly. Sigh. That show was just…awesome. Loved it. Sucked that it was cancelled. Same goes for Arrested Development. Another loss. I would still have issues w/ FOX if it weren’t for 24 and House.

    I am heartbroken over this. Fox has a horrible track record of pulling great shows–ie Firefly, Justice and now Drive. They seem to have very creative ideas for their shows, but just horrible scheduling. Give the shows some time to gain a following! Geez. I agree with the above posts that I will definitely not be watching any new Fox shows until after it has been on for a while. Otherwise I’m just left wishing about what could have been. Anyone want to start an open letter to Fox? *sigh* Good luck Nathan Fillion!

    Truly unbelievable. I only wish Fox execs read these postings, so they knew how pissed the viewers are. But then, all networks are the same. The only thing they care about is the bottom line. I think it’s a great idea to not watch a new show. If it succeeds, you can always catch up with the DVDs, and if it fails, you’re not left hanging.

    I can’t believe other networks don’t jump at these Fox cast offs. The only thing anyone seems to want to put on the air is stupid (but cheap to make) ‘reality’ shows. Idiots.

    I agree with Mannie on this one, Drive would have made an amazing movie in my opinion. And of course, I agree with others when I say that FOX needs to let the audience grow on their shows. I found out about Drive the week before it was off the air. I saw the episodes on MySpace, on their page and then was let down to know that it wasn’t airing anymore.
