So few viewers are watching that this vote is probably for a lost cause: big mistake, America.
8 PROFIT (Fox) In the year’s stupidest programming move, Fox canceled this strikingly original series after a scant four episodes.
In thieving attitude and atmosphere from The Larry Sanders Show, Arli$$ renders its unfunniness not merely sad but infuriating. RHODES (NBC) Even if this show about a hep-cat teacher didn’t star the charmless, barber-deprived Tom Rhodes, its ceaseless procession of ignorant yet cool students makes the show’s ”education is good” message merely depressing.
