TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES: Cancelled…. or is it?

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2 Cast

TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES cancelled? There is a rumor in the blogosphere that Fox is thinking of doing just that.

SyFy Portal reports the following:

The network has been disappointed by “Sarah Connor’s” numbers so far this season, and some executives feel that the show is dragging down numbers for “Prison Break,” which airs as a lead-out.

“Audiences just aren’t responding to the show,” a Fox source tells SyFy Portal. “Our biggest surprise are the 18-to-49s [a key advertising demographic], those numbers are in the toilet.”

If this is true, I have to say that FOX has no one to blame but themselves. The fact is that the demo that they are going for is extremely demanding in terms of quality and innovation. This means that they will not stand for average story telling (except in the Season 2 Premiere episode “Samson and Delilah“) or average special effects.

Personally, I feel Terminator needs some more time before it is cancelled. There is a lot that can be explored here, like seeing John fall in love with Cameron (Oh come on,am I the only one who is curious to see that?). I think that it could be interesting to watch. If all else fails, I am sure that FX could be a good home for the show (Not SciFi which has the nasty habit of cancelling great shows like Stargate Atlantis). Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles would do well with an FX makeover that would make as gritty and as raw as The Shield or Sons of Anarchy.

What do you think of the possibility of FOX cancelling Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles?
