    • Underlooked Televison-Who's to blame?

      10 years ago

      hypeserver

      When it comes to television ratings are the key to success. With various conflicting airtimes, online distribution sites (such as Hulu, Joost, etc), or online show retailers (iTunes, Amazon, etc) television shows aren't picking up the ratings they should be getting. Off the top of my head I can think of four tv shows with big
      storylines that due to people watching the episodes online or due to poor advertising methods; the shows were canceled. Now I'm not going to go into a huge rant over the importance or unimportance of tv ratings; however I do have some points I want to bring up. First let's take a look at the four shows that I had mentioned earlier.

      1. The Black Donnellys (NBC-Universal; February/2007-April/2007)
      This show chronicled the life of four working-class Irish brothers who ran a bar and were involved in the Irish mob scene in New York. The show had a good easy to follow plot which let you get to know the characters a little more with each week's episode. The show only aired seven of it's episodes on television, but due to the fanbase the season was finished in an online run in mid-2007. The show was rarely promoted on NBC except during later night television ads.

      2. Traveler (ABC; May/2007-July/2007)
      The show had a very strange plot where three friends went on a planned road trip. All things were going well until one of the friend's appears to have set a terrorist attack on a museum in New York city and framed his two friends. Near the middle of the first episode to the end of the series the two friends have escaped the cops and try to find out who "WIll Traveler" actually is. The series ran for eight episodes leaving off at a major cliffhanger in the storyline. ABC chose to not finish the season in webisodes like NBC did for "The Black Donnellys". The show ended in July 2007 due to low tv ratings most likely due to airtimes of the show and the season the show was aired. The show was advertised constantly on ABC to the point where the network seemed desperate to run this show.

      3. Journeyman (NBC-Universal; September/2007-December/2007)
      The show's plot is kind of hard to explain in words. The main character, Dan Vassar, can basically travel back in time. Dan is unable to control when or where he goes back in time. When he goes back Dan is supposed to do a certain task that he must figure out before it's too late (saving someone's life, mostly saving more people's lives, etc). The concept maybe a little hard to accept when you first read it, but the show had a large online fanbase. Unfortunately for the show, and it's fanbase, the tv ratings were low due to it's viewers watching the episodes online. During the time of the show's airing; Journeyman's episodes were some of the top sold tv episodes on iTunes.

      4. New Amsterdam (NBC-Universal; March/2008-April/2008)
      New Amsterdam was a VERY short-lived show about John Amsterdam. In a way; the show seemed to share a lot of similarities with another canceled NBC show, Journeyman. When John Amsterdam was younger an Indian remedy was given to him that would make him live for ever. Once John found his true love the remedy would be lifted and he would grow old and die. Although the concept may not seem all THAT similar to "Journeyman" watching both shows would bring out some obvious links between the two. Both Journeyman and New Amsterdam contained a pretty large amount of "flashback" footage from the main character's past or rather the past in general. In Journeyman the main character went back and lived the past, however, in New Amsterdam the character was "reliving" the past through his many flashbacks.

      Possibly I could add a fifth and final show to the list. Although the show is not particularly canceled as of yet, the show is on a "TBA/Hiatus" status and has been for the last few months. The show in question is of course, "The Middleman".

      5. The Middleman (ABC Family; June/2008-September/2008)
      For "The Middleman" I couldn't figure out the best way to describe this weird show so I thought Tv.com said it best... "Wendy Watson is recruited by The Middleman as his protégée. The Middleman, a milk-guzzling comic-book-like superhero, protects humanity from the supernatural forces that lurk in the shadows". Although the show is not "officially" canceled; after a few months in "TBA/Hiatus" it can only be assumed that the show's ending is imminent.

      So who exactly is to blame for the cancellation of good television? Bad advertising, online distributors, online video retailers, bad time slots? It really depends on which show we're talking about. Some of these shows like "Traveler" were over-advertised and made viewers believe they could grab most of the story through the trailers and teasers. Other shows like Journeyman, New Amsterdam, and The Black Donnellys all had a rather large online fanbase, but most of the fans watched the episodes exclusively online. The tv networks didn't profit much through the ad campaigns for their online video on-demand services so the shows were scrapped. However; let it be noted, that all three canceled shows with large internet fanbases were all aired on NBC-Universal. I wonder if that says anything about that particular network....hmmm....

      I'm not saying that the new NBC-Universal lineup is bad, in fact, I like a lot of the shows that the new NBC lineup has to offer.....well ok....some of the shows. I was a huge fan of Heroes up until season two, like most of the fans, I lost faith after that. Currently I'm still a rather big fan of Chuck and hope that unlike NBC's other successful shows this show doesn't get canceled. Normally I would of made this post over to TMB or TGL, but we're going under some redesigning of the sites and not sure when we'll currently be back up online.

      Although I've working on Friday and Saturday I still have time to game tomorrow and on Sunday. Some games I never beat, but want to try catching up on with the storylines and achievements include; Tom Clancy's Endwar (almost complete), Fable II (setting out to find the second hero), Fallout 3 (almost half way through), Assassin's Creed (killed the first two targets), Grand Theft Auto IV (forgot where I left off), The Orange Box (portal 1 mission left, as for half life episode 1 I didn't get that far, episode 2 didn't play, and need some more achievements in team fortress 2), Mass Effect (almost 2/3 of the way through; trying to beat the game at absolutely 100%), Overlord (1/3 of the way through), and finally Halo 3. Yes, I know Halo 3 is almost dead to a lot of people right now, but with only having two missions left I have to beat it sooner or later. Since we all know; looking up the ending on Youtube is just weak. I plan on hopefully playing all those games at least once along with three others (if I get around to them) Gears of War, Gears of War 2, and Call of Duty 3 (almost beat COD2, one mission left in COD3, completed COD4, and I have yet to get COD5).

    • Unexpected NXE Feature

      10 years ago

      hypeserver

      Just browsing through and downloading off the Xbox LIVE Marketplace has made me come to notice that Microsoft has removed the "6 download queue" and made it so you can have a seemingly unlimited number of downloads set aside for the queue. Before the NXE was released an Xbox LIVE member was only allowed to have 6 downloads queued up to be stored on the console. Although the NXE only allows one download at a time it makes it a whole less frustrating to add a lot of items to your download queue.
      For some people you may go to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and download a ton of Xbox LIVE Arcade game trials at a time. Before with the NXE you had to late for 1/6 of the downloads to complete before you can add another one to your queue. With the NXE you can add an unlimited number of downloads to your queue without the hassle of waiting for your downloads to finish (which can be particularly tiresome if you're downloading multiple game demos).
      The NXE as a whole is a great update and brings the 360 further along into the next-gen line. Although some users will be upset that you won't be able to go back to the old version of the dashboard, you may come to favor the newer dashboard for it's slick next-gen feel.

    • How do you record to the mac?

      hypeserver

      Hey guys, I really want to get into recording video tutorials, but I have two questions.
      1) What's a good video capturing device to use for the Mac?
      2) Can you record video to a device and still use the RGB cables instead of your composite?
      If anyone has some answers that would be great. Recording to my windows desktop is not really an option for me since the computer isn't of the greatest quality and all my video editing software is on my macbook.

    • Posts on TGL

      hypeserver

      Well lately I've been kind of neglecting TGL. I've been trying to find time to post, but with school, work, and finding new media it gets a tad bit troublesome. Hopefully I'll have some long awaited posts up over there soon. I have a few reviews in mind that I have been holding off on doing. After my homework's finished today I'll probably throw a post up over there. I've been reading a new book called "Company" by Max Barry. I read and reviewed one of his other books, Jennifer Government, last month. So expect a review of that book, gotham knight (yes, I'm just getting to review this), castle crashers, and a review of Star Wars Force Unleashed. I have a few websites I'll be reviewing as well, but I have a lot of catching up to do on my posts. Expect to see a lot of content being adding to TGL in the upcoming week or so.

      Well I have to head off to work at 2pm-9:30pm and then try to come up with some new reviews for TGL (I made two posts last week and one post earlier this week). Hopefully I'll have some more posts up by Tuesday otherwise I'll be sticking to the RT forums and Newgrounds forums like glue. Along with playing some videogames (Rockband, Castle Crashers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1989, Exit, and Alien Hominid).

      Spike TV is well known for being the "men's network" as well as running an insane amount of commercials during movie presentations, but what about comedy series? Surprisingly; Factory turns out to be a really funny and well thought out show. Spike took it's first "hit" on a comedy series early this year. The show chronicles the lives' of four factory workers and their adventures both outside and inside the workplace. Has anyone else tried taking a look at this show?

      The ABC Family show "The Middleman" premiered earlier this year and is now on it's twelfth episode; airing Monday September 1st. The show is based on a short lived comic of the same name which chronicles wacky/cartoony styled missions that the "Middleman" must encounter; including flying vampire fish, evil nanobots, and vampire puppets. Has anyone seen the last episode about nanobots taking over Ida and turning her into a bomb (episode eleven)? What's everyone's thoughts on the show? Do you think it will last? For more info on the show you can check it out here.

      im glad that you understand, all my friends say im an asshole for liking Apple. Maybe if Microsoft 7 turns out ok, I might have a small thought about possibly considering to purchase it and put it on my MAC, but there is no way in hell that I will ever buy another PC

      The game is by Jackson's gaming company, but since it's a Halo game Bungie might have a big announcement for it. Or they could just be announcing a new IP.
