The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

I immediately got caught hooked on Zero hour. Part historical facts, part probable science, mysticism, intrigue and part Indiana Jones! When it was cut after just three episodes I was extremely disappointed. I however just discovered that remaining episodes were aired and I have been glued to my TV for the past three days! Another season, please. It’s not fair to evaluate rating from viewers standpoint only. Many who loved the show never realized it had returned. More please!

Hopefully ABC can see that not releasing this series online at the same time they released the series originally on tv hurt their ability to have increased their serie’s ratings. Maybe Netflix will have the forthought to purchase the rights to this show and produce it themselves. Though if I was Netflix I would release new episodes each week, instead of releasing them all at once. The show if perfectly setup to go in so many different directions at this point. It will be a great disappointment if someone doesn’t move forward with it.

It won’t CB. Kinda to0 religious at the end. My scenario would have had an big beetle start coming out for the lady instead of the building falling on her. Cool!

ABC continually misses what the public wants. Again they end a show, Zero Hour, that was very complex and intriguing. A show with some substance. Who is really determining what show stay and which go. I don’t think it is those that watch. Tired of stupid mindless shows. Bring back shows with depth and well developed characters.
