The 1974-1975 Kolchak: The Night Stalker ran for 20 episodes, and when all is said and done, the re-imagination will have produced a paltry nine shows. So when people think of Kolchak years from now, guess which version people will still recall with fondness?
Yet I was trying to give the new show a chance - a fair hearing - and I think it's a shame it's been cancelled so quickly. Especially because Supernatural is still on.
And more trouble for sci-fi TV shows looms ahead: CBS aired Close to Home on Friday night in Threshold's usual time slot. The crime-drama earned some strong numbers there, so figure that Threshold may be homeless soon too...or at least moved to another time-slot.
