Summer Glau is on the show… so what happened? Why did NBC cancel The Cape? Well, the show has struggled since the beginning and drew an all-time low 1.1 demo rating, managing to make it to 4 million total viewers. And we are talking NBC network. That´s not good… at all.
Earlier this month the series order was cut from a 13 episodes first season to a ten episodes one; and now the finale won´t even air on the network. It will be an NBC.com exclusive.
As announced on the site “The creators … are prepping an exclusive episode just for online fans! Keep watching this site in the days ahead to see a full-length special episode.”
But when will The Cape finale be posted at NBC.Com? Still to be announced. We hope the show gets its fair chance to a good farewell.
So what went wrong with a show with good cast and a good idea? Beats me, but the numbers were just not there.
What do you think? Are you sad NBC cancelled The Cape in its freshman season? Let me know in the comments section.
