...whether journalists are being ironic:
When it introduced its slate of fall programs, the WB Network had a clear-cut mission to broaden its audience beyond teenage girls. But executives weren't really looking for 50-year-old women.
That, however, turned out to be the audience tuning in to see the veteran actor Don Johnson in the show "Just Legal." The program was canceled after three episodes.
Gee, nobody could have figured out who was going to tune in to watch Don Johnson???
The show also starred 23 year old Jay Baruchel.
Just Legal was a horrible fit for the post-7th Heaven slot. The WB has never figured out something that entirely worked in that slot, though Everwood did better than most there.
I think they realized it was simply a bad show.
Just Legal? Sounds like one of the websites spammers keep trying to get me to visit.
Send it over here. All the UK's TV drama is for 50-year-old women.
