Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles gets axed

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Monday, May 18, 2009

Today the Fox network unveiled its schedule for the 2009-2010 season and much to the disappointment of its fans Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was not renewed.

At an event that took place this afternoon at New York City's Center theater, Fox Entertainment's president Kevin Reilly made the announcement. The reasons given by Reilly for the cancellation of T:TSCC was the show's high budget on sluggish ratings, something that unquestionably placed the show on the chopping blocks.

"It was not an inexpensive show," Reilly explained to the press. "We had to make some choices on the night. We looked at ratings track where it had a consistent run. And that trend line was not pointing in the right direction. We make no apologies for that show -- we did a huge launch with that show. We tried. It was time to move on ... Ultimately we bet on Dollhouse."

Another factor that likely played into Fox's decision won't be mentioned but it's a hard cold reality of business: Dollhouse is owned wholly by Fox while Terminator was owned by Warner Bros., a rival studio. While both shows struggled for ratings, when the numbers are crunched and a hard decision needed to be made it would have made more sense to pick-up Dollhouse for Fox's bottom line.

Launched in early 2008, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles picked up the storyline from Terminator 2 and branched off into a different story direction than the movie franchise. The show starred Lena Headey as Sarah Connor, Thomas Dekker as John Connor, Summer Glau as Cameron and Brian Austin Green as Derek Reese. The series ran for 31 episodes and ended its second and final season on what will now become an unresolved cliffhanger.

NOOOOO!!!! Please, oh please tell me SciFi is picking it up, as has been rumored. This is a very good show, and that finale needs more explanation! This is not fair! People just don't watch TV anymore like they used to. I feel so jipped.

It's 'gypped,' Col. As in a slur against gypsies.

Christ, I've been very pedantic the last few days.

Pat, your mission, whether or not you choose to accept it, is to score another interview with Ashley, or Friedman and find out WTF were the long range plans for the series. Also, I've heard rumblings about the CW or USA picking it up. What's the haps?

Fine. I feel screwed, bamboozled, denied, deflated, but most of all...GYPPED! After the finale of Battlestar, this was in my top-3 shows still on TV, to include Lost and Dexter. It had so much potential, please Pat, let's get on this thing! The sad thing is the petitions I have seen online don't even have as many signatures as Kaeos's online show. Both deserve MORE! :)

This bites, I was really hoping that with the loom of the movie coming out that there was still hope for the future. Now O know our fate, the Machines will win.

If the movie is a smash success, will that inspire the money men to give this show a second life?

I've still never seen an episode. I don't like that Summer Glau. Had to bear her through all those otherwise-enjoyable episodes of Firefly.

I predict Sci Fi will go for it. NBC Universal will take the bet. Thats where my money goes.

I hope they don't base the show's future on the success of Salvation. Because Salvation will not be any savior of the show. Fingers crossed that SciFi reaches its hand out to the show, and says those famous words..."Come with me if you want to live"

Instead, it said, "Hasta la vista, Baby!"

Of course, pretty much anyone running Vista is screwed. Maybe Skynet should have sent a T model back to make sure there was nothing in between XP and 7.

I wish Arnie would ask the new Sarah, "Your clothes. Give them to me, NOW." OK, I'm done.

She's the wife in 300. She's naked. It's great.

Did Snyder CG off her panties the way he CGed off Malin Ackerman's in Watchmen?
