With two weeks in the can for television (minus Sunday of course), we can finally take a look at the post premiere numbers and see how our TV cancelation betting pool is going.
Pan Am Pan Am Premiere
Pan Am is an ABC Sunday night drama that follows the crew of the brand new Clipper Majestic as they travel around the world in search of adventure along with the passengers they watch over. Like the NBC show The Playboy Club, the show takes place in the majestic year of 1963, but unlike its competitor, it doesn't beat the viewer over the head with front and center nostalgia or a cliche storyline.
ABC brings us a whole slew of new dramas this year, including a 1960s period drama and a fairy tale drama which seems to be all the rage this season. With the demise of Desperate Housewives, ABC is wasting no time capitalizing on the standing audience to help maintain its place on Sunday nights.
