Crusoe: A Mini-Series or Just a Doomed-to-be-Cancelled TV Show?

November 28, 2008
NBC's newest adventure series has had a rocky journey. The network believed in the Crusoe TV show enough to give it lots of promotion but saddled it with a Friday timeslot, one of the least-watched nights of television. Did the series ever have a chance for survival? Crusoe is based on the 1719 Robinson Crusoe novel by Daniel Defoe. The series follows the adventures of a young man, Robinson Crusoe (Philip Winchester), who leaves his wife, Susannah (Anna Walton), and children to go to the high-seas in search of riches to settle his impending debts. Crusoe ends up stranded on a remote island where he befriends a native named Friday (Tongayi Chirisa). While trying to find a way off the remote island, the two must battle the elements and intruders for survival. Crusoe also features Sam Neill, Sean Bean, Mia Maestro, Mark Dexter, Emma Barnett, Jake Curran, James Lauren, James Middlemarch, and Lorcan O'Toole. Featuring lots of special effects and costumes, the series was filmed in South Africa. The TV show debuted on October 17th on NBC. The Crusoe two-hour premiere attracted a modest 7.38 million viewers. It placed second in total viewers for the first hour and for the second hour, it moved up to first place. Unfortunately, the show was third in the all-important 19-49 demographic with a 1.6/5 rating/share. That means that, overall, it drew an older audience which isn't what the network needs or wants. Taking into account all of NBC's promotion, this wasn't a very good start for the historical drama.
