CULT, Rockne O’Bannon’s series about TV as, oh, the Devil, we suppose, is on its way out at The CW…and may well be history by the time you read this.
The show only managed a 0.3 rating in the 18 to 49 demo in its first two outings, which makes its cancellation justifiable homicide in any TV exec’s book.
Our own take on the show is that it is/was as good as anything else debuting this season. It’s just that it’s about, you know television. And belief systems. And it’s weird – threateningly weird. And there just ain’t no audience for that kinda thing unless it’s done by J.J. Abrams or Joss Whedon.
Especially on the CW, which specializes in superheroic
kids young adults at the lower end of that demo age group.
Wonder what they’d charge for the use of their names?
Bye CULT. We hardly knew ye.
