    I would wager that it's not a problem with viewer retainment so much as viewer not-bothering-in-the-first-place-ment.

    Also, I don't recall seeing a promo for the show in pretty much ever.

    [While watching popcorn in the microwave]
    Maddie: "Look Riley, the bag's as big as your head now!"
    Riley: "Hahaha, yeah!"
    Maddie: "Look, now it's as big as your butt!"
    Riley: "Omigosh, it looks just like my butt!"

    Maybe it can be Family Guy'd, and after it outsells Avatar in DVD sales, they'll bring it back.

    And, while I'm wishing, I want a pony.

    I know that I had no interest in the show until five weeks into last season when I saw the BoT thread was full of "OMG SO AWESOME".

    They'd have done better to just run the Veridian Dynamics ads, with a tag at the end with the time/channel.
    Case in point:

    vs:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpUPW4FL6Mo

    I'm going to do something I hate now, because this quote from youtube is pure fucking gold in my opinion.
    It's spoilered for two reasons: 1)It's a quote from youtube (from the second video), and thus brainmelting and 2) if the illuminati know that I know...

    If BoT really was an illuminati plot, why is the show failing?[/spoiler]

    Their plot failing is all part of their plot.

    Yeah, this shows promos made it look terrible.

    Then I accidentally watched an episode on Hulu (The one where Ted goes LARPing and ends up running things) and found it hilarious.

    As a student working towards a marketing degree these kinds of promo's fill me with hope. If people this shit at their jobs can land work for major networks then practically anybody with a degree and a suit should be able to land a solid job.

    I think the trick with a writing career is that you've got to be willing to consistantly dumb down your work and assume that your audience are utter morons.

    Dunno. They don't have any plans to reschedule them right now.

    Worst case is we'll have to wait for the 2nd Season DVD's, but hopefully they'll find a free hour at some point during the summer to burn them off before then.

    Just as an aside, not to talk anyone out of it, I picked up Season 1 on DVD on release day.

    It is easily the WORST DVD set Ive ever seen. Easily. Im glad I supported the show, but my god it's awful.

    No special features whatsoever. No commentary whatsoever. Same exact pictures and menus on both discs. Only options are PLAY ALL and EPISODES.

    No insert in the DVD case. Nothing at all.

    It is the absolute definition of bare bones. I was very sad.

    The worst part is Netflix streams it in HD, so the DVDs are totally obsolete for now, because Netflix looks way nicer.

    Still better than, say, Burn notice or chuck, where you have the same lack of features, but they charge you $60 for it

    Oh hey, the entire 2nd season (episodes 12 and 13 included) are up on Netflix streaming right now.

    They're not Jabberwocky great (the golden standard to which I hold every BoT episode), but they're still pretty good.

    Plus it ended on a happy note, which was nice.
