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.

In case you’re curious, here’s some information about the episodes that you won’t be seeing, at least for awhile.

    I enjoyed the show. The story line was interesting, the acting was good and yes, even though parts could have been written stronger I think it was a fun, interesting show. Sad our society seems to prefer shows that are stupid and don’t make you think or involve intrigue. It would be nice for a network to go out on a limb and stick with a strong thought provoking story for a while, I am rather tired of watching a show, getting interested and finding the show is canceled.

    Again, the viewing public began to have a little hope with some of the series (rather than REALITY SHOWS) that were beginning to air. I really enjoyed the 3 episodes, was looking for a continuance (actually read earlier in the year on another site it was picked up) but now am disappointed the series is cancelled. Wrong move guys! Think this story had the chance to go far if properly written and advertised. However, that being said a few others I enjoyed also went the way of the “cutting room”. Please air the remaining episodes! A suggestion, if you play the original 3 again then finish out the remaining episodes, do a bit more advertising (make some noise) you might just find some more interested viewers.

    At least put all of the episodes that were shot on Netflix. Also I think that it was a really bad decision to cancel the show, but what do I know, I am just part of the viewing public.

    Another one bites the dust. Every time there is something worth watching it gets cancelled.
    I never seen an advertisement for the show, so how do they expect to have viewers.

    Another one bites the dust!? Who is in charge of scheduling and cancelling series? Our Family heard about “Zero Hour” after the first episode had aired. Fortunately, we were able to watch a recording of it. We all loved it! Why film 10 episodes of a great mystery/thriller and make the decision to cancel before the show even takes hold? We’re very disappointed!

    I really think they should release the episodes online. I really loved the first 3 episodes, then today I found the 4th online, and I really want to know how this series ends. Please please please release it!

    storyline was good. it had a lot of twists and turns. the problem was the main character. he just did not fit. I would suggest make it into a movie. you have the material to cut out some parts to shorten the whole thing up. but if you could recast the main character. he appeared way to weak. I think you need some one like benedict cumberbatch that played sherlock, with a little bit of james bond. maybe someone a little hotter and you would have a hit. the current main character played a doctor well in other series but just does not fit this character. and even it you cancel something you should find a way for us all to hear the whole story and an end. really makes me frustrated to be left hanging not knowing what happened.

    I have been traveling so Set DVR to record this new show. Upon getting to third episode and after research online discovered it was cancelled. Amazing show!! Please air episodes this summer when nothing but reruns are usually.

  9. Beth says

    Because of my hectic life I DVR’d the show. I finally had some free time to watch the first 3 episodes and began to wonder why no more had been recording. I initially thought something went wrong with my DVR and as I was searching for the show discovered it no longer shows up. I quickly jumped on-line to discovered that it was cancelled due to low ratings. I’m devestated that a show with a great theme, plot, and story was not well receieved. I’m wondering if ratings are only based on the actual viewer watching the show during airing. If this is the case they need to start taking into consideration the people who DVR or watch shows on-line. Truly saddened by the loss of another potentially great show. Please air the episodes that were taped; or even better bring the show back!!!
