FlashForward‘s premise is exploring what happens if people got a brief glimpse of the future. Too bad the show wasn’t so prescient with its own.
ABC reportedly plans to announce FastForward will reach the end of its run, along with a slate of under performing shows that includes the long-tenured Scrubs. FlashForward had a promising start in September, with 12.47 million viewers tuning into the premiere. But fewer than 5 million were still sticking around for last week’s episode.
Its a sad end for a show that was supposed to tap into the same vein as Lost. FlashForward may have a trippy, time-traveling plot — just none of the ratings.
