BubbleWatch: ABC's 'The Unusuals'
SHOW: "The Unusuals (ABC)
IN ITS FAVOR: Great cast. Quirky tone. Some critical support.
AGAINST IT: As ABC very well knows, "Lost" is a useless launching pad for new shows, so there were signs of hope when "The Unusuals" at least premiered to better numbers than "Life on Mars." A one-night showcase on Tuesday, though, performed dismally and failed to give the drama a Wednesday boost.
OUR GUESS: It feels like one-and-done for "The Unusuals." We're disappointed, too.
THE VERDICT: Cancelled.
