This just in! According to SpoilerTV.com, Fringe will be returning for its fifth and final season on Friday, September 28th at 9pm! As well, Touch will be returning for its second season on Friday, October 26th at 8pm as a lead-in to Fringe. I wonder if the two of them will be a successful pairing as Friday nights seem to be filled with competition from other sci-fi/ fantasy shows like NBC’s Grimm and CW’s Nikita.
Sorry to all you Alcatraz fans but my prediction was right. The show, unsurprisingly, has been cancelled by FOX, according to TVByTheNumbers. The JJ Abrams-produced drama was getting very mediocre ratings (usually below a 2.0 in the 18-49 demographic) and it didn’t have great fan/ critic reception either, many saying that the show was too procedural (like CSI) and that too few sci-fi/ conspiracy elements were being utilized.
That’s too bad, another sci-fi show ended quickly. Hopefully Revolution can fill the void on TV this fall.
My prediction was also right about Touch which was picked up for another season, despite its so-so ratings. That’s probably all it will get too.
