Fox to 'Sarah Connor': You'll be back
The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise. "Sarah Connor," which fills out the story of the "Terminator" movies, premiered well, but viewership then tapered off. That, combined with the overall television slump during the writers strike and the show's relience on costly special effects, led to some speculation that the show would be, well, terminated.
Still, there were enough viewers that Fox's announcement this morning proclaims it the season's No. 1 new scripted series among adults ages 18 to 49. (Not mentioned among those qualifiers: Hits were far and few this past season.)
Regardless. It's good news for those of us who invested couch time watching Season 1 -- and trying to figure out the often-fuzzy plot -- and feared it would all go to waste if/when the show was canceled.
