Yeah, looks like it has a big budget, so the axe could fall quickly.  I'm DVR'ing it, will probably watch.

Saw an ad for this last night???

Hmm... looks like a cross between "Lost", "Flash Forward", and "The Big Bang Theory"...

 Huh?

Monday Ratings: 'Event,' Hawaii Five-0' Soar, 'Lone Star' Plummets
http://www.buddytv.com/ar...vent-hawaii-fi-38122.aspx
Quote

Here are the quick ratings by network:

ABC
Dancing with the Stars (8pm): 21 million
Castle (10pm): 11.2 million

CBS
How I Met Your Mother (8pm): 8.8 million
Rules of Engagement (8:30pm): 8.3 million
Two and a Half Men (9pm): 14.5 million
Mike and Molly (9:30pm): 12.2 million
Hawaii Five-0 (10pm): 13.8 million

NBC
Chuck (8pm): 6.1 million
The Event (9pm): 11.2 million
Chase (10pm): 7.9 million

FOX
House (8pm): 10.5 million
Lone Star (9pm): 4.1 million

If you were one of those people worried about dedicating yourself to a new mystery because you thought NBC would cancel it right away, your fears can go away. With huge ratings for the premiere of The Event, it's unlikely the show will be going anywhere anytime soon, so catch on while you still can.

lol.  [raises hand]

So Lonestar premiered with terrible ratings, and the show's creator wrote a blog post about it that sounds almost strohdawgian.

Do you like to root for the underdog? Because I've got an underdog of epic proportions for you. We're talking long, long shot. Like a legless horse in the Kentucky Derby. A blind basketball team facing the 95 Bulls. If somehow Rudy and Rocky had a baby it still wouldn't be as big an underdog as our little show... Lone Star.

You may have heard about last Monday night when several heavily sequined, dancing celebrity, conspiracy laden, bowling shirted nuclear bombs landed directly on our heads. When everyone who watched your show is a paid critic or someone you went to high school with, that's less of a premiere than a slideshow.
...
...
Here's the thing: it really is a good show. Don't take it from me, take if from these guys here and here and lots of other places. Are these all just people in ivory towers with tweed jackets and glasses of scotch who hate America? Possibly! But my Mom also loved it and she LOVES America just like you.
...
...

So here's the plan. You go deep. All of you. You and millions of your friends. And Monday night, down by a lot with only seconds on the clock, we'll throw the ball up, an impossibly long arcing pass into a host of defenders who are taller and flashier and stronger and probably more well endowed than all of us, and maybe, just maybe, it's one of those moments where the thing everyone said COULD NOT HAPPEN actually just... does. And you my friend, you could say you were there, you and all your friends, just taking one big Gatorade bath with the millions of people who, like you, decided to say 'F you' to statistics and just settle in for a damn good hour of television.

So spread the word. Repost, retweet, re...faceboook or just put on your crazy pants and head down to the freeway exit and shout at cars like I'm going to.

Monday night.

STUNNING UPSET.

Mark it.

Wow! NBC ratings are about on par with Fox now. So much for "must see TV".

deuce, you, of all people, should check out the Event pilot (or at least the first few minutes).

I just finished watching it.  Interesting so far.  Better than I expected.

My hope is that NBC gives The Event a long leash since their hits are rare these days.

I didn't realise this was still on here.

I gave up after one and half episodes.

As we like to say here - "this has died in the arse!'
