Poor ratings for the finale of a broadcast drama series may lead to the show’s cancellation, reports the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog.
Only 3.9 million viewers watched Sunday’s first-season finale of ABC’s “Pan Am,” with the broadcast trailing CBS’s "CSI: MIami" and NBC’s "Celebrity Apprentice" in its time period in both total viewers and viewers 18 to 49, the story notes. The show pulled a paltry 1.2 average rating in 18-49.
The finale numbers represent a large dropoff from the show’s debut, which attracted almost 11 million viewers, the piece points out. ABC declined to comment, according to the article.
