My Own Worst Enemy: Watch the Last Episode of the Christian Slater TV Show

My Own Worst EnemyOver the past few years, NBC has certainly had some problems attracting viewers. One of their biggest trouble spots on the schedule has been Monday nights at 10pm. Great shows like Journeyman, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and The Black Donnellys have all tried and failed to bring large numbers of viewers to the peacock network. The most recent timeslot casualty is My Own Worst Enemy.

My Own Worst Enemy centers around Henry Spivey (Christian Slater), an everyday businessman with a wife (Madchen Amick) and two kids (Taylor Lautner, and Bella Thorne). Unbeknown to himself and to his loved ones, Henry has another identity. He’s also a secret operative and trained killer named Edward Albright.

In this second persona, he works for a secret spy organization under the supervision of Mavis Heller (Alfre Woodard). He’s frequently partnered with friend and fellow operative Tom Grady/Raymond Carter (Mike O’Malley). Other series performers include Omid Abtahi, Saffron Burrows, James Cromwell, Sarai Givaty, Mark Ivanir, Mindy Sterling, Missy Yager, Eugenia Yuan, and Louis Giambalvo.

The show debuted on October 13, 2008 on NBC and attracted a mediocre 7.27 million viewers and a 3.0/8 rating/share in the 18-49 demographic. Over the next several weeks, the numbers dropped to a low of 3.63 million and 1.5/4. Worst Enemy lost over 40% of its Heroes lead-in in overall viewers and even more than that in the key demographic. The disappointing ratings caused NBC to pull the plug and shut down production almost immediately.

Last week, NBC aired episode nine called “Henry and the Terribleā€¦ Day.” Unfortunately, unless the network decides to change its mind or another channel decides to take over Worst Enemy, this is the series’ last episode. If you missed it and would like to see where we left Henry/Edward, take a look….

Another station with total disregard for their viewers feelings. How can they just leave us hanging out there like that? That cliffhanger where they kill the computer geek that was going to fix Edward/Henry and destroyed the program is not a proper finale. After investing almost 10 weeks of time watching the show because it was truly something different and enjoyable they leave us hanging like this. Not kosher, NBC!

Well, they need to make room (a LOT of room) for biggest loser couples, families, the dog and any other overweight groups that they can exploit. C’mon, they just ended one run of Loser and then a week later they start a new flavor of Losers! I am so sick of watching fat people cry (so yes, I DO change the channel to anywhere but NBC)

I am tired of the big networks continually dropping good programs to make room for train wrecks like TBL and Momma’s Boy and awful game shows like Deal…

I know they gotta make the bottom line, but how can you sell ads on a network that runs garbage like that every night. If this keeps up, the big 4 in Hollywood will wind up like the big 3 in Detroit – on life support and dying – while the cable networks thrive offering more and better original programing.

PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THE SHOW!!! I didn’t like the first episode, but I continued to tune in and have fallen in love with the show! Two of my favorite shows this season are being cancelled and I’m very unhappy about it! The least that NBC could have done is finish the storyline instead of just dropping it in the middle of the story. ARGH!!!!
