'Drive' gets parked

Fox has just junked its new cross-country race series Drive after just four episodes. Thus it joins Kidnapped, Smith, Daybreak, Vanished, Runaway, The Nine, and Six Degrees, serialized dramas that debuted this season and were yanked from the air without disclosing the answers to the mysteries at their core. It's gotten to the point where I can't recommend serialized shows on broadcast TV. The odds are overwhelming that any time and effort you invest in watching them will be a complete waste: They get canceled far more quickly than other programs because network executives believe they cannot increase their audience after the first hour or two. And your wasted time and effort ranks just below the goldfish in their office aquariums in terms of their concern.
