Behind the Scenes

space
ABC initially ordered 13 episodes of the series but scaled it back to eight late in production. As a result, the writers had to quickly adjust the last episode script.
space
Traveler was initially going to air earlier in the season but was pushed back a couple times by ABC. The network had little faith in it, likely because of the poor performance of most other serial dramas in the 2006-07 season.
space
The series debuted to a disappointing 5.0 million viewers and dropped to a low of 3.7 million during its short run.

    I totally agree with Jim V. I found the show quite interesting and fairly well done compared to in my opinion, a lot of junk that is seen on the TV these days. At ten same time, I didn’t want it to bet old, but should have been allowed to play out another 4 or so episodes to come to a good conclusion.

    I thought this show had a clever plot with decent production that deserved better treatment from the alphabet network.
