OK, it’s a slow Thursday afternoon and I’m in the mood for some fun. I want to create a “fan excuse” bingo card (hat tip to commenter Holly for the final push to motivate me) for posting on the site, but I want to get folks suggestions.

Here are some initial suggestions just to prime the pump, but let me hear yours. Depending on how many good ones there are I may make a series of cards.

Sample excuses for failed shows:

It wasn’t promoted enough.

It was on the wrong day  / time.

Network XYZ is run by morons.

It did better than [the show that previously failed] in that timeslot.

It has good reviews.

It needs time to grow.

It’s a niche show.

It has great average viewership.

It beat Leno.
