Seinfeld was not a ratings hit during it's first two seasons BY FAR. But NBC stuck with it, and today it is considered by MANY to be the GREATEST sitcom of all time.
So my point is if we all mention this in our letters, it may help convince FOX that it has the next Seinfeld on its hands. The shows mirror each other in many ways. Most notably it's innovation, it's excellent use of guest stars, and it's repeated references to previous events in the series. Perhaps pointing out these similarities will ring a bell with someone in charge.
Anyway, I'm not hearing a death knell for this show YET. I believe that with the history FOX has had, if a show was not doing well, they would yank it off of the schedule completely, even if episodes were shot, done, and paid for.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I read somewhere that that one show "Skin" that fox had was cancelled after two or three episodes, even though they had about 3 more shot. Fox took the hit and got it off the air. Don't you think they would do the same with AD?
Maybe it's the optimist in me, but I see something positive in that Fox is letting AD continue to air. Right now, my gut tells me they'll be back for a third season, but my gut is also very hungry
