The Television Critics Association meetings seem to have produced ‘Hopeful Press Quotes From The Stars of Low Rated Shows’ day. First Jennifer Finnigan of Better With You, and now Jerry O’Connell of CBS’s The Defenders:
“CBS tends to do very well with Friday nights,” The Defenders star told The Hollywood Reporter. “I know Blue Bloods has been there and done quite well.”
“CBS knows what they’re doing. I’m not going to tell them what to do. You know better than I do!”

Jerry doesn’t seem as optimistic as Jennifer, and he shouldn’t be. The Defenders is CBS’s lowest rated non-Friday drama, and there is virtually no chance that CBS doesn’t cancel its lowest rated dramas come May.
