The smoking wreckage of ABC's rookie dramas in 2011-12 is evident:
- My Generation, two epiosdes and cancelled.
- The Whole Truth, six episodes and cancelled.
- Detroit 1-8-7, eighteen episodes aired and certain to be cancelled.
- No Ordinary Family, nineteen episodes aired and certain to be cancelled.
- Off The Map, eleven episodes aired so far, and certain to be cancelled.
Body of Proof premieres tonight at 10pm, and it's ABC's last chance for a rookie drama survivor.
What will Body of Proof's premiere ratings be?
For reference, remember back to the heady days of October, 2010 when Detroit 1-8-7 premiered to a weak 2.3 adults 18-49 rating, and fell in two weeks to a 1.7 rating. It finished its run unable to top a 1.2 rating.
Update: You may wish to revise your guesses, there's going to be a Tweet-a-long.
