In its first season, Seinfeld didn’t have a huge following. I’m not comparing Drive to a historic show like Seinfeld, but I am just plain pissed off now and can’t think of anything else to say.
In the 2-hour season premiere the show was viewed by 6 million people and since then according to media reports they have suffered some “leakage” of audience, losing a half million to a million viewers after each successive episode. I’d like to take a leak on Rupert Murdoch’s head. ….
Too many shows these days are not given a chance to find an audience. Take for instance shows that I have mentioned on this blog before like The Wire and numerous others. They are wonderful shows that you really have to delve further into to enjoy. I think the Drive had that cult following potential and wasn’t given any opportunity to succeed by Fox.
Damn you corporate America!
