Apparently viewers weren’t all that impressed with the first two hours of The Prisoner on AMC Sunday night…after gaining 2.2 million viewers that night, Monday night’s second two-hour set averaged only 948 thousand viewers – and I’m not surprised. The remake really didn’t have any of the things that made the original quirky or interesting (except Rover, and a few other nods to the original). I think Ian McKellan could have made an excellent Number 2, but it seemed like the whole point of his job, and of the Village itself, was muddled – although by the end of the second part it started to become obvious what was happening – it just wasn’t interesting, and very confusing. It seemed to be going for an abstract feel and a thought provoking ending, but it failed on both.
ABC has announced that Lost will move to Tuesday nights at 9PM, with its final season premiere on February 2nd. NBC has also revealed that Chuck will finally return on Sunday, January 10th, with a double episode starting at 9PM, and then will air on its normal night on Mondays the next night at 8PM.
