Quite enjoying The Player . The action sequences are terrific . Unfortunately the ratings are quite poor so i doubt that it will hang around very long . At least one of the Strike Back duo will probably survive (Blindspot)

That's too bad . While i enjoy both The Player and Blindspot i thought Philip Winchester was more dynamic Than Sullivan Stapleton .Strike three for the Player and a home run for the Blindspot .

'Truth Be Told' cut to 10 episodes at NBC | TVbytheNumbers.Zap2it.com
It seems cutting episode orders is the new cancellation this fall.

The latest dead show walking is NBC's comedy "Truth Be Told," which was reduced from 13 episodes to 10 on Tuesday...The show is in production on its 10th episode and will shut down after that. It was already extremely unlikely to get more episodes with its early ratings, and this pretty well cements that.

'Chicago Med' gets 5 more episodes on NBC

NBC has ordered five more episodes of the freshman show, which brings its total to 18 for the season. That’s short of the standard 22, but that likely reflects “Chicago Med’s” late start.

It will also likely be pre-empted a couple of times in February and March when “The Voice” kicks off its new cycle. That show typically runs two-hour episodes on both Mondays and Tuesdays for the first couple of weeks.

“Chicago Med” is off next week for “The Voice” finale and will be in repeats the last two weeks of December. It returns with new episodes on Jan. 5.

The article explains the "limited series" ploy - "Had the ratings stayed up, however, it seems pretty likely that Kring and NBC could have figured out another story."

Other "limited series" have proven to be popular and come back for more seasons.
