Canceled Network Drama May Find New Life on Cable

May 18, 2012  •  Post A Comment

One of the highest-rated broadcast shows to get canceled this season may be picked up by a cable network, Deadline.com reports. The CBS drama "Unforgettable” could be headed to TNT or Lifetime, according to the story.

As previously reported, "Unforgettable" was canceled after drawing an average of 12 million viewers, but pulling only a 2.5 rating among viewers 18-49.

CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said the question wasn’t "what went wrong with ‘Unforgettable’ but what went right with the new pilots," the story notes.

Producers Sony Pictures TV and CBS TV Studios have had early discussions with TNT and Lifetime about picking up the show, which stars Poppy Montgomery as a detective who can visually remember everything.

TNT has had success with female-led police shows, such as "The Closer," while Lifetime has tried to debut shows with the theme, including "The Protector" and "Against the Wall." Both shows were canceled after one season, the piece points out.

  1. Please pick it up TNT!

  2. Dropped with good reason—it was forgettable.

  3. If they pick it up, I hope they go back to its ogiginal name: The Remember-er-er-er…

  4. Yet another illegitimate offspring of Mr. Monk. Maybe they could pair it up with their new “mental illness as super-power” detective series, “Perception”. The series did absolutely nothing for me but I could easily see it fitting in with the TNT programming.
