No-brainer

CBS has canceled its unfortunate series about chick-magnet neurosurgeons, 3 lbs., after just three episodes. Its ratings were even worse than those of Smith, the robbers-and-cops drama it replaced. Which also lasted three episodes, if I recall correctly. I guess we now know the precise limits of the patience of CBS executives.

Doesn't the speed with which networks pull hour-long dramas work against viewers wanting to invest themselves in these shows in the first place?

It seems to me a smart viewer may now want to wait at least three episodes before deciding to watch one of these dramas, given the strong chance the network might pull it before then anyway.

Incidentally, I was one of the dumb viewers who wasted his time enjoying Smith for a few episodes, before it was flushed away, to be filed in my brain near the time I wasted watching The Montefuscos when I was younger!
