quarterlife = FAIL

NewTeeVee, among plenty of others, has noted that last night’s network TV premier (yes, it had already aired on MTV and MySpace) of perhaps the most over-hyped, under-loved web series so far, quarterlife.

“In a development that could kill the network dreams of other fledgling web series, quarterlife’s premiere on NBC last night bombed. TV by the Numbers paints the not-so-pretty picture: quarterlife came in last place in its time slot, with a mere 3.86 million viewers. An ABC Primetime news special won the hour with 7.64 million viewers, and even the wait-wasn’t-that-canceled Jericho did way better, attracting 6.9 million people.”

Many will say this shows that webisodes are not quite ready for primetime.  My feeling is that bad programming will fail on any platform and there is simply not a single reputable critic out there that has a positive review of quarterlife.  The show stinks.  It stunk on MySpace, too.

    the show didnt stink. It was good. Try to state in an intellectual manner why you didnt prefer to watch the show. Many people will find it hard to connect to this show, do to the fact that people lack the ability to look past trashy reality tv and poorly composed shows (such as desperate house wives) and look backwards, to a time where tv was art, actors portrayed differing styles, and where light was used to convey something deeper.. its about style, taste… not bad or good..
