John Cho as FBI agent Demetri Noh in FlashForward.
ABC has canceled FlashForward, the sci-fi show that starred John Cho in one of the most visible televison roles for an Asian American actor in recent years.
Cho played FBI agent Demetri Noh, who was part of a team that was investigating why everyone on the planet blacked out and saw visions of the future.
The high-concept show started with a bang and seemed to have promise. After a few bad episodes, I thought the show was starting to pick up. But it never caught on with many viewers, and a three-month hiatus didn't help, so ABC canceled it.
The show was also notable for having Noh in an Asian-black interracial relationship with a character portrayed by Gabrielle Union.
At least we'll see Cho in sequels to Harold and Kumar and Star Trek, but I'm disappointed ABC didn't give FlashForward a chance. Anybody else wish it was renewed?
ABC IS MADE UP OF IDIOTS this show had promise, but when you take it off for3 months , you are killing it,,,
I love this team...the actors are exceptional.I wish the show would go on...
And not only because of the John Cho hotness. :)
That's my favorite show I can't believe ABC is cancelling it it was soo good I am extremely dissapointed. It's a sad lost. It was a great show while it lasted.
every thursday night i look forward to one thing, flash forward. if this show gets cancelled, i don't know what i might do. i will definitely cry with tears of sadness and hatred towards ABC. they will be letting me down as well as all of you. i can't see the end of flash forward not now, not never. it is one of the best shows on television these days and has no reason to be stopped. keep flash forward alive.
Why did they have to cancel this show? It was really good!! Seriously, they gave Lost a heck of a lot more leeway. They should have given it another year. I am sure that it would have picked up. Especially with Lost going off the air. What idiots I tell ya, what idiots. Really, what show can last if you take it off of the air for three months? C'mon. ABC bring it back!!!!
I love John Cho, it's a shame ABC is cancelling the show. He's one of my favourite younger actors - I hope he continues to get more opportunities and bigger roles.
HOW COULD YOU CANCEL SUCH A GREAT SHOW. I LOOK FOWARD TO EVERY EPISODE PLEASE RENEW IT AND GIVE THE SHOW A CHANCE I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO PUT IN ITS TIME SLOT. YOU HAVE LOST ME AS A VIEWER TO ANY NEW SHOWS IF THIS IS HOW YOU TREAT THEM
when are they cancelling the show, are they going to at least let them play it out so we can find out what happens???
Especially with LOST ending at the end of the year, you'd think they'd get some viewers from the island.
Definitely one of the best shows on TV in a poor year for TV. Why are they canceling it, do you know?
If this show really gets cancelled then this will be one of the greatest losses we as americans will ever know. Never in the history of television has there been a more thrilling, suspensful, psychologically entertaining show! I will forever begrudge ABC for this blunder of a decision and moronic thoughts. Thanks for nothing jerks! BRING IT BACK!!
Dont cancel this show!!! Seems these days no network is willing to give a show a chance to build an audience. This really annoys me and I may have to boycott ABC if this is the kind of programming choices they plan to make
Its the best show on TV in years. pretty much the only tv i watch is when this show is on.
and I'm sad to se it go. Is there hope another network will pick it up?
Here's an effort on Facebook to get show renewed or onto another network:
I think it really sucks that this show is being canceled. It's one of my favorite shows and every week, i eagerly await to watch it. And with the season finale coming up, it's surely going to leave many viewers hanging since the season finales are done based on the hope that the show will renew and come back the next season. Surely there will be cliffhangers and we'll never know what could or would have happened. This is very frustrating and exactly why viewers are now apprehensive about watching new shows in fear of becoming involved with these characters and story lines, the the show gets canceled. What a big mistake ABC is making with canceling this show.
I can't believe they are cancelling Flash Forward! Are they crazy? My whole family and I look forward to watching this show every week, and we talk about it all the time. ABC is making a terrible decision. I am very disappointed. I hope another network with will pick up FF.
Please don't take Flash Forward off. I am a Lost viewer also and I know this show will pick up the Lost Viewers...Please Please give it a chance
In my FLASH FOWARD I SAW THE SHOW BEING RENEW OR PICKED UP BY ANOTHER NETWORK
I watched FF religiously and ABC cancels it? What a shame and a bad choice for them. Now that LOST is over, I will not watch anymore ABC shows. You lost out ABC on a great show, your loss. So please, any other network out there, pick up this wonderful show. FF has fans-lots of them. What is this world coming to...tsk tsk.
I DON'T BELIEVE IT!! THEY SUCK YOU INTO A DECENT "SITTING ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT" EVERY WEEK SHOW, THEN THEY CANCEL IT??? ARE THEY NUTS?? OR JUST PLAIN STUPID (I'LL PICK THE LATTER)
You're deleting GREAT SHOWS and adding OTHER CRAP SHoots. Stop rolling the dice and give this GREAT TV a chance. YOU are directing everyone to chose NON NETWORK Products.
My fiance and I watched the show without fail and it's aggravating that just as a good show starts to gain momentum, they pull it. Happened last year with The Unusuals -- another show we really enjoyed...
Oh well. I neeed to cut down on my TV time anyway...guess we'll have to rely on premium cable channels to provide quality television.
I am not a big tv person, but I watch Flashforward religiously. How can they keep crap on tv like the bachelor/rette, survivor and or some of the other crappy ass reality tv shows, but axe flashforward? If anyone knows a website where we can email the ABC eggheads, let me know. If this show is not renewed, I will probably go into tv hiatus again (unless it is a sporting event).
First it was Journeyman, then Life on Mars now Flash Forward.
Cancel 'V"instead that show is terrible.
Flash Forward is the only show that we all look forward to watching.
I know reality TV is much cheaper to produce, but it is just a shame to take off this great show with great scripts and a stellar cast (i love you Olivia!)
Oh well, at least I still have TARA and DEXTER
This is really a shame....Flash Forward has been very exciting and I have caught myself after several episodes saying, "I love this show!, I think it could be even better than LOST!" And mind you, I am a die-hard LOST fan as well!!! I think the 2 mistakes were one, the 3 month hiatus...and two, that they shouldve atleast waited until LOST was done! There was so much hype on LOST's Final season, and if Flash Forward were to have it's season premier say like the day after the final episode of LOST, GUARENTEE all the lost fans would've made a very smooth transition over to Flash Forward. At some times it was hard to keep up with watching Lost and Flash Forward at the same time.....and I know for a fact that the ratings dont really do the show justice. For one, there's people that DVR it, and 2nd, there's people that can't tune in, so they just download and watch all the episodes online! I am one of them! I have not once watched it live on tv...every single episode I watch online because that's when I have time to get to it and catch up to the episodes ive missed. And I am a VERY VERY huge fan of Flash Forward. I just wish there was something we could do to try and save it or bring it back.
I refuse to watch anymore of your shows ABC!!! FlashForward was my FAVORITE show and I am blocking that station from my tv. Find ratings elsewhere!!!!!!!!!!!
I am like everyone else that has posted...I can't believe Flash Forward has been canceled. I DVR it everyweek and after I get my 4 yr old to bed, me and my wife watch it...now what? First it was 4400, then Journeyman and now Flash Forward. I can't take anymore. At least V is coming back.
CAN'T BELIEVE THEY CANCELLED FLASH FORWARD. LOVE THIS SHOW! FINALE WAS AWESOME! WISH THEY WOULD CHANGE THEIR MINDS ABOUT CANCELLING IT.
I just watched the season finale and went on line to look for spoilers for season 2. Only to find that this fantastic show has been cancelled! Major bummer!!! What is wrong with ABC?!?!?!
I'm among the group of people who will no longer watch "NEW" tv shows. Especially if the program is a high-concept show where each new episode builds on previous shows and heads toward some inevitable conclusion (i.e. Lost, Flash Forward, V, Fringe, etc...). If a show like that truly makes an impact, I'll watch it on video once it's reached a COMPLETE and SUCCESSFUL conclusion. The networks might keep me, though, if they would at least commit to a 2 or 3 show finale once they've decided to cancel a program. At least then, viewers could receive a little closure on the countless hours of their lives they've apparently wasted/lost.
WHY IS THIS SHOW CANCELED?!!!
WHAT IS ABC THINKING?!
FLASHFOWARD IS MY FAVORITE SHOW!!!!
IF ABC JUST WANT TO CANCEL SHOWS
THEN IM NOT GOING TO WATCH ABC EVER AGAIN
AND I WONT EVEN TELL PEOPLE TO WATCH ABC SHOWS
BECAUSE AFTER FINDING A GREAT SHOW
THE NEXT THING WE KNOW IS THAT IT IS CANCELED!!!!
SO WHY WATCH ABC? TO BE DISAPPOINTED OVER AND OVER AGAIN?
IF YOU GUYS REALLY WANT TO MAKE MONEY
CANCELLING GREAT SHOWS IS NOT THE WAY
PEOPLE WILL HATE YOU (ABC)!!!!
YOU JUST BRING DISAPPOINTMENT!!!! WHO WILL THEN WANT TO CONTINUE WATCHING?! REALITY SHOWS?!!!! WHAT THE !!!!!!!!!!!!
If the show doesn't come back, we're left hanging. What did people think of the final show last night?
I guess people will never wake up, except the woman from the X-Files.
It was so intelligent, well played and written.
I'm totally blown with this.
I agree about the closure. It's just not fair for us viewers.
ABC had the chance to create the biggest T.V show since Twin Peaks but they missed it.
I thought the show was weak. The finale was just too ridiculous. From the Japanese mom creating the diversion to the worst shoot out ever in the office building. The acting is terrible too except for dude that was in BSG.
V sucks too.
Canceling Flash Forward is a big mistake. It was just taking off and never given a fair chance. We followed it for a year and now it is just being jerked away with no satisfying resolution. This is going to make a lot of viewers think twice before investing in another series! Another station might be wise for picking up this series!
This is the link to contacting ABC about complaints about cancelling Flash Foward:
FF was an AWESOME show and I'm very very very disappointed in ABC for cancelling it. But everyone with a brain knows what that means...they need room for the new brain-dead shows that will be coming out.
LET THEM HEAR WHAT YOU THINK!!
Please join my facebook petition http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=111907415521155&ref=ts
Please add urselves and lets get those numbers rolling in..........................we can show abc that they have made a drastic mistake.
The more people join the heavier pressure we put on the network to change their minds.
They cant just leave the series hanging like that its a travesty.
There are staged blackouts planned across the globe on June 3rd at different locations and times please check out the link on my page for such events and if u are able to attend then thats fab........................the staged blackouts are going to be at different television networks who show the show across the globe, they will take place for 2 mins and 17 seconds.
Claire FlashForwards no1 fan
Here is a plausable ending for FF. The physicist got back the ring from Agent Noh. He wsas trying to stop the next FF by messing with the machine. He did something to the machine, did not stop the FF, but pushed up "THE END" which was predicted on the date chart. Everyone passes out except those wearing that ring - and then the world ends.
THAT is an ending. Sure, it stinks, but it's an ending. ABC could have given us an ending - at least that much. SYFY always gives us an ENDING when they make series. The major stations suck.
What are the executives thinking about? You keep giving us crappy shows like the bachelor and bachelorette but keep camcelling shows that have plots. Leave us hanging again......it is just another big network doing the same......Hill Street Blues anyone? If you can remember two main cops got shot in a shootout in the finale and then the show was cancelled.........keep giving us stupid pet tricks and reruns of Americas funniest videos...that will work. Here's a plan...stick with a show for more than one year and I don't mean year and a couple of shows..i.e. Eli Stone..... and let the rest of the world get in touch in a second season and go back and rent the first season or buy it...more money....duh! Lost didn't do well at first but you kept it and I hear people tell me that they have bought or rented the all the preceding seasons and now are watching the final season.
