For those wondering whether NBC would be able to squeeze the remaining episodes of Revolution in without running into June, wonder no more!

During today's TCA session NBC chief Bob Grenblatt referred to the "the last 10 episodes" of Revolution remaining to air this season. An NBC spokesperson confirmed to The Futon Critic that indeed there will only be 10 more episodes to air this season, which brings it to  a total of 20 episodes for the first season. Additionally NBC also cut the order for Deception by two episodes, from 13 to 11.

    Why is it such a big deal that there’ll only be 20 episodes?

    It’s not, however, people like to be personally insulted whenever there is a perceived slight against their favorite show. ;)

    The surprise isn’t that NBC cut the order, it’s that it took them this long to look at a calendar and realize they needed to make that move.

    Why do you assume that because the decision was just announced that it was also just made?

    Well, they did cancel one of their highest rated shows last year in Harry’s Law. Maybe it didn’t draw the 18-49 crowd, but NBC was hardly in position to be picking and choosing when it came to TV ratings. So the precedence of making “good” decisions is there.

    You have absolutely no clue how the network television business model works.

    I suggest you follow the FAQ link at the top for starters, ask lots of questions and refrain from opining until you’re more familiar with the topic.

    How is it that this long-winded borefest is still on the air? I guess that NBC had to have something to fill the timeslot.

    The reason this makes NBC look like a bunch of idiots is because the calendar didn’t just get created this week.

    The return of Revolution has been ‘on the books’ for as long as the premiere of Deception has been ‘on the books’. Either NBC was going to change things and push Revolution’s return back and have it’s season finale on 24 June or they were going to reduce the number of episodes so that Revolution ends in May. What their explanation is for not being able to count to 13 i would love to know because anyone could lay out the broadcast of Deception and see that it clearly was going to overlap with the broadcast of Revolution, by TWO WEEKS. If one wants to argue that some mind-changing happened i would direct you to the one press release from 30 October which lays it all out. This is nothing more than a great big ‘o s#!+ we really screwed that up, how do we fix it’ move.

    To the delusional Chicago Fire fans: shut up. CF isn’t more popular and it doesn’t even come close to bringing in the ratings Revolution does. Get a reality check and wait for CF to drop below 2.0 again.

    Cutting 2 episodes! I’ll bet they don’t cut the price on the DVD release!
