Zero Hour: Cancelled Episode Information

Zero Hour cancelled episodesAs you may have heard, ABC has cancelled Zero Hour after three episodes. The TV show’s ratings were terrible to start and then got worse in weeks two and three.

The cast and crew filmed 13 episodes of Zero Hour and word is that the network may air the rest of them sometime this summer. Because the ratings were so bad, that doesn’t seem likely but we’ll have to wait and see.

ABC should not delay and release it online. I have been following the show via my ABC app.

From half way through the first episode I was obsessed with Zero Hour! As a big fan of Lost, and have been hoping to find a show to fill the void, and this was it! Each episode was full of answers and each moment of the show was important, no dragging things along (unlike the first couple seasons of Lost). ABC should admit this was their mistake for programming an intense action drama in a sitcom timeslot. At 8:00 their target audience is busy tucking in the kids, everybody on the planet knows this was a 10 pm show. Man up ABC, and give the best show you’ve got another chance!

I found the show very intriguing. I was looking forward to seeing the story unfold.
I, too, can’t stand those so-called reality shows.
I would like to the the full season aired.
All shows should get more than 3 shows to prove themselves. Shows should be aired fully, no matter what the ratings. At least they would recoup their money.

I really dislike reality shows. It is most annoying that an interesting show like Zero Hour is canceled and all the stupid reality shows remain. Either bring Zero Hour back or put it online!!!

I am very disappointed. Finally another show that is intriguing, keeps you guessing, is a cross between DaVinci Code and Lost and makes you think!

Why do you cancel a series without even getting it a good start? It used to be network practice to try shows with challenging ratings on other nights. Putting it up against one of the top shows spelled disaster before it even started.

Get a clue, folks – some of us want intelligent, mind provoking TV – otherwise, we may just cancel your network!

I dislike the reality shows. Honestly, who thinks it is all that real, and I have my own reality. I don’t need to be bored by those stupid shows.

Zero Hour was very interesting. It had mystery, suspense, and drama. The scenery was great. I want to see the rest of the episodes. It is like someone saying you can’t finish a good book. If there was a book I would read it.

Bring the show back now on a different night. Nothing can compete against Big Bang Theory. Be realistic and give it a chance to stand on it’s own. I notice they don’t risk any “popular” shows against BBT. And, the show before this one also got canceled from “poor ratings”. Bring it back and let it find an audience.

Wow, i just realized that Zero Hour was really cancelled. Put the rest of episodes online.
Or actually bring it back!!!

There were 13 episodes made and it would be great to have the opportunity to view them. Like others, I’m curious how ratings for TV viewing is gathered.
I suppose I should get used to the idea that my interests will never impact those ‘ratings’.
(sigh)
I will never understand how any of the reality shows continue to thrive. Their existence is embarrassing. I see the current comedy shows as awkward and shallow.
Dramas and mysteries are interesting and satisfying. Yes, they are! The layered plots provide a sense of accomplishment, discovery or resolution. The human desire we have to understand and improve our surroundings is called upon when we are challenged to look, listen and learn more.
Zero Hour is one of those shows that is satisfying! It spurs you to observe and think.
It was not what I expected. Quality content, filming, acting, direction. Well done!
Shame on those who cancelled this show just to fill its time slot with malarkey.
A lot of talent went into developing Zero Hour. I hope to see the following episodes soon.

ABC keeps canceling all the great shows and don’t even air a couple episodes for closure. It really is starting to make me want to avoid new ABC shows as I don’t want to get into a show, like Zero Hour, and ABC just cancel it without any notices or episodes to provide closure for the views. Ridiculous!
