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.

I watched the first 3 episodes on demand as I work during prime time hours and can not watch when it airs. I loved the show and have been waiting for more, only to find it cancelled. Finally had a show that held my interest. If ABC won’t bring it back, maybe SYFY will as it would be perfect there.

I thought I was losing it when I couldn’t remember what channel it was on. I searched and decided to check online……cancelled!??? WTF? I even stopped watching Fox news to catch this series. Oh well, no wonder I watch the news all the time, not much else interesting makes it these days. Please air the rest of the episodes……..

As expected if I like a show and it has some plot instead of the mindless jokes the network will cancel the program. It has been my experience over the last 40 years. At least put the full 13 episodes in a summer slot to see how it does. I think most of the people need to know the show is on and give it a chance to get into the plot. Not everyone wants to have thoughtless shows on or the news that is more entertainment then information. Put Zero Hour on a cable channel Syfy channel would be perfect. It reminded me of the X-files/Indiana Jones kind of plot. I think you are missing out on what could be a very interesting program. Just my thoughts.

Maybe they cancelled Zero Hour because it was a great show and it made the viewer think and that’s not what ABC wants. Instead they probably want mindless zombies that just watch stupid reality shows to make us stupider!

Come ABC! View the schedule of other non-plot driving series, like many of the ignorant comedies that not one person I’ve discussed tv shows with watch! What are your primetime comedy ratings and have you considered that they’re placed when there’s nothing of competition to watch! Now “Nashville’s” definitely a series to cancel–stupid, far worse that daytime drama tv! Get back to decent writing, plots and something of adult interests. Zero Hour satisfied all points! Far better than any ignorant comedies you’re running and paying for, and certainly far better than stupid Nashville!

Why was Zero Hour aired during an “8pm” timeslot!! It would have made it if to be placed at a later hour, as the adult audience the show was intended shouldn’t be aired during “family” time with young kids up and about. Further, very few adults are in position for a conspiracy show at that hour. Many would have enjoyed the show given the proper hour to view it! Would certainly like to see it come back!! /jb.

I caught Zero Hour on a free website here in the UK. I thought the show was great and am very dissapointed it got cancelled. I am amazed by the volume of shows that get commissioned in the States and equally amazed at the number that get cancelled. At least here in the UK a drama gets to run to its conclusion and when something is cancelled notice is given so that an ending can be written. It is really frustrating when there is no proper ending to a show and viewers are left hanging. I am also as fed up as anyone of reality shows!

I have been scanning and scanning to find “Zero Hour” thinking I was wrong and forgot what night it was on.Three programs and wow it has dissappeared. Why does ABC think this has bad ratings,I think this is a and would have been a very good series.I looked forward to seeing it. Yes they should release the rest of them this summer, and continue them after that. Why it it that when alot of the good series come on they dissappear so quickly.

Either way let us fans see them to conclusion. Either release via the networks website or air them. Numbers keep dwindeling because of antics like this. You start to get into a show and WHAM! they pull the carpet out from under you. The networks have only themselves to blame

Ditto, Mark. I can’t believe the networks put so much faith in the ratings in 3 weeks time. ton’s of intrigue in this series and…’at least let us see…” the episodes that lead to a conclusion. This show is designed like ’24’ and it’s a crime not to let it play out. Hell…I didn’t start watching 24 until the second season, 4th ‘hour’

My vote is for airing the rest of the season.

I was excited to see a show that I could watch and rewatch again and again, getting more from the story each time. I have the first 3 episodes still saved on my dvr waiting anxiously for more!
Reality TV is killing the chances for quality shows like Zero Hour that make you actually think.
The show should at least finish out its already filmed episodes for those of us who finally got excited about a tv show again.
Please?!?!

I was loving this show, please put it back and let it finish up. There are fewer shows out there that have any mystery to them. Please play the rest of the series!!!!

I loved Zero Hour. I’m furious that I finally find a show that isn’t the traditional cop show or secret affair or “surprise! I’m an escort” or reality show and it’s cancelled. You already paid for 13 episodes…show the darn things or let us watch online…something! It actually was something different, that required you pay attention and maybe think (that’s the problem – people don’t want to have to think) so you think no one will watch it. Maybe if you promoted it half as much as Shark Tank or the other stupid reality shows more people would have watched it. Plus, it was on during Valentines and the biggest blizzard in years in the Northeast… I really don’t think ABC gave the show a fair chance. I’m hoping to hear it’s back this summer or at the very least I can watch the rest of the episodes online.

A story with an arc makes you want to watch it each week! Sometimes once people get wind of the story, it makes them want to catch up and see the whole series! Pulling before you air a season is just plain stupid, not to mention the DVD potential!
