It's also going on hiatus until March, which is never a good sign.
I don't know the show. I'm certainly not an expert. But I keep seeing articles all over the internet talking about how well the show is doing. Such as this article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mauree...b_2002248.html
which calls the show a "ratings hit."
Again, I don't know. I'm not watching. But I was under the impression it was doing fine.
I'm not sure the hiatus is a sign of trouble. I thought it had always been a planned hiatus. My understanding is that it's to finish up post production and to create a little suspense, much like Lost used to do.
EDIT: I did just see that ratings for the most recent episode were way. So, you're right about the most recent numbers. It'll be interesting to see if it can rebound a bit once it comes back. I don't care either way. The show doesn't look that engaging to me. I figured I'd wait to see if it can make it out of S1 before I start trying to get into it.
