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.
