Let's play a little game, shall we? Read this quote from the linked article:
Observers noted that an episode order cutback would be pricey for NBC given the international sales already in place for the show and the episode fee guarantees associated with high-level talent like Silverstone.What are we to deduce?
If it is more expensive for a network to cut episodes than to order them, the show must suck. A LOT. I dunno, you read that any other way??
