Bravo's Fall TV "DeathWatch"

abc's ugly bettyBravo TV’s offshoot website – Brilliant But Cancelled, is hosting a “Fall 06′ Deathwatch”, allowing visitors to place their bets on which series premiering this fall will be cancelled first. As of late Monday (9/11), Fox sitcom Happy Hour was in the hot seat, at 3 to 1 odds of cancellation. At number two (4 to 1 odds) is ABC’s Men in Trees, starring Anne Heche – at first glance looking like Sex in the City (featuring a former writer of said series) had a fling with Northern Exposure.

Unexpectedly, another ABC comedy – Ugly Betty (pictured), is in third place for most likely to get the early kiss-off. Hot off last week’s national TV critics survey that listed Betty in second as Best Overall New Program (behind Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), it appears as if it’s getting off on the wrong foot with viewers, despite encouraging reviews. Featuring America Ferrera as the awkward prodigy who lands a job with a high fallutin’ fashion magazine, most troubling is it’s time slot – the 60 minute program will be competing directly against NBC’s My Name is Earl, and The Office.

You may vote for whom the bell may toll, once a week at brilliantbutcancelled.com, through September and October. Correct guesses enter you in a drawing for HDTV’s and J-pods.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!
