TV’s Newest Smash Hit or Not


Fall brings many things: shorter days, cooler nights, colorful leaves, and a new television season.  Some of the new shows have been on for a week or two now and are already being proclaimed as “TV’s newest smash hit!”  Call me a skeptic, but really??? How do they know after one or two weeks that a show is a hit?  How do they even define “a hit”??How do they know after one or two weeks if a show will even survive to live for a second season?

The TV Guide schedule is littered with shows that were “destined” to be the next big hit like Flash Forward, The Event, Bosom Buddies, BJ and the Bear, Supertrain, Cavemen, and Listen Up.  Yes those were all television shows and the I bet some of them you have never heard of.

There are few shows that really do stand the test of time and continue to be watched year after year and these are shows that I bet you have watched:  The Andy Griffith Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, I Love Lucy are among those that actually were destined to be great TV shows.
