Zero Hour: Cancelled ABC Show Still Airing — Just Not Here

Zero Hour cancelled episodesThough ABC has cancelled and pulled Zero Hour off the schedule, it looks like viewers north of the border will get a chance to see the remaining episodes.

GlobalTV, which airs the Anthony Edwards show in Canada, still has Zero Hour on their schedule, at least for the next two weeks. The broadcaster runs Zero Hour at 8pm on Thursdays, just like ABC did.

Global makes aired episodes available online but are only available to those with Canada IP addresses.

There’s still no word on when or if ABC will get around to airing the remaining 10 episodes of Zero Hour. A summer run is a possibility but the show’s ratings were so poor that the network could likely garner better ratings from reruns.

On the positive side, ABC hasn’t removed the show from their website so there’s a chance the episodes could also be released there.

What do you think? Do you think Zero Hour will continue airing in Canada? Do you think ABC will air them eventually?

UPDATE: GlobalTV has now pulled Zero Hour as well. Both ABC and GlobalTV only aired three episodes.

    I really liked this show! First time in years I sat down to watch a show WHILE I WAS ON! Kinda hoping one of the cable networks will grab it.

    if you have to think to watch a show and get it , forget it its going to get cancelled. the viewer of today can only understand white trash reality shows or shows about our first black moron in the white house….

    I really enjoyed this show as did my husband. I don’t understand why after only 3 shows it was pulled. It aired at 7pm here but I had my DVR set to record it. I don’t like reality shows and that seems to be the majority of what is on right. To bad that ABC didn’t give it more of a chance and we would like to see the remaining episodes and the show to continue.

    you show three episodes and expect it to be a hit right away. three episodes were good, at least show the rest and give it a chance. Ive been looking for it didn’t know it was cancelled and that really stinks.

    I agree with all of the comments from everyone. I really enjoyed the shows, they were similar to the “National Treasure” movies. I looked forward to the show. I also hate reality shows, so it was a nice getaway from reality. For the life of me, I can’t understand why people waste their time watching the “stupid” reality shows that are around. ABC did not give the show a chance. Would it be too much to ask to air the rest of the shows? You do know that “Person of Interest” had low ratings in the beginning, now look at it. I don’t know who rates your shows, ABC, but you need to get a different sample audience.

    For the first time in a while, there was a show I wanted to watch at 8 on a Thursday! Zero hour made you . think and it was totally unique! Give it a chance at another time or day, intelligent viewers will watch!

    What a GREAT show!!!!!!!! It really made you think!!!! I guess that is a novel idea for those who took the show off the air. Why don’t you guys get a life and let us watch something besides the ridiculous reality shows that do nothing but show people doing stupid, ridiculous, idiotic things that normal people wouldn’t do!!!!!!! Bring the show back and let those of us who would like to watch a show that makes us think and reason do so.

    This show really held my interest I hope they bring it back or atleast make it possible to watch the remaining episodes. I hate stupid reality shows.

    Of course it was pulled….it took a level of intelligence to understand, it was thought provoking, very well-written, and interesting. Unlike all the “hits” people watch like the new show Splash or Dancing with the Stars which are full of has-been actors and athletes. These shows require nothing from the audience in terms of intelligence. I guess in the US, that is the mainstream. In addition….3 shows against one of the most popular shows on TV, it would be difficult for any show to gain an audience in that slot.

    Networks are going to have to realize that people don’t “watch” TV the way we used to. With all of the technology available to watch on a computer, a mobile device or even play back shows on On-Demand, Netflix, Streampix, Google Play or any DVR cable box, there is no longer the necessity to plop down in front of the TV at a specific time on a specific day. Air times of shows conflict with other shows and conflict with life. BUT… Here is the catch: networks don’t really care about whether or not a show is being watched; its the COMMERCIALS they want us to watch!! So they need us in front of the TV at airtime so we can see that Toyota or GEICO commercial.

    Loved this show! Wish they would have tried another time slot 1st before cancelling. HOPE THEY CAN CHANGE AND BRING IT BACK!

  12. Joni says

    If you start a show at least film the ending each season JUST in case you pull it, If you want us to watch any new shows. HATE to get involved then bam. So frustrating. Who are they polling anyway. 3 episodes and you just knew it was done. What we don’t count? You made why not change the day and time and see if that works first.
