Crossbones: Cancelled? NBC Series Shipped to Saturdays

Crossbones TV show on NBCNBC has decided that their low-rated Friday night drama, Crossbones, will now wrap with a pair of episodes on Saturday August 2nd. The installments had previously been set for Friday, August 1st and Friday, August 8th.

Though the network hasn’t said that Crossbones has been cancelled, the ratings have been terrible and it’s highly unlikely to return for a second season.

Crossbones revolves around the life of Edward Teach (John Malkovich), better known as Blackbeard the pirate, and his desire to aquire a valuable invention called the longitude chronometer. Others in the cast are Yasmine Al Massri, Richard Coyle, Claire Foy, David Hoflin, Tracy Ifeachor, and Chris Perfetti.

3/30/15 I just saw a posting from Diane that NBC will show Crossbones in August; however she wrote Saturday, August 2nd.

Did she mean Saturday, August 1, 2015?

This show was not well advertised in 2014. Many of my friends had not heard of it. I hope NBC gives early and frequent notices of the 2015 listing of Crossbones. Drama done well attracts a loyal audience.

I found Crossbones last year by accident and was immediately captivated by John Malkovich, the strong cast, and the story-line. This kind of high caliber show has been missing from the current television programming. Please continue this show or make another that has the same quality, high standards, and great cast.

I hope.they don’t cancel it. I love this show and I hope.thope.they re not going to replace it with another stupid reality show. Most off tv today is made up of reality TV which makes me.want to barf. What has happened to the good dramas and comedies that the networks use to have? No wonder their rating are going down the toilet. I can’t believe some of these reality shows, like 16 and pregnant, the one where they are naked and in the so called wilderness, and the Kardashians? Please quit rewarding these people for airing their dirty laundry and sex tapes just.tjust.to become famous and then there’s Kate Plus 8, this woman is doing nothing but using her kids so she can be on tv. Go to back to real tv and drop some.of these stupid reality shows please!!!!!!!!!
