September 14, 2005 – Which fall TV show will be cancelled first? Hedge your bet, as the bodoglife.com Sportsbook has listed a betting line to “kick off” the fall television season.
This year’s fall TV line-up features over 30 new shows. With the onslaught of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror programs, viewers will have no shortage of potential thrillers to critique. This year’s newcomers include: Commander in Chief, starring Geena Davis (ABC), The Apprentice: Martha Stewart (NBC), and Everyone Hates Chris, a comedy show narrated by Chris Rock ( UPN ).
“Each year, come early fall, millions of Americans tune in to watch their favorite television shows,” says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of bodoglife.com. “The newcomer shows face an uphill battle as they compete for ratings against the familiar favorites of the past.”
CBS’ Ghost Whisperer, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt has a storyline that revolves around a woman who deals with troubled spirits. bodoglife.com bookmakers show 3/1 odds that this drama will be the first fall television show cancelled. Other top contenders for the “axe” include: UPN’s Love, Inc. and WB’s Just Legal, both showing at 4/1 odds.
Love, Inc. is about some New York City women who run a matchmaking agency but have trouble finding their own mates. The Just Legal plot involves two lawyers attempting to take on the legal system.
“With the large volume of new and returning shows, viewers will certainly be afforded an entertaining fall television season,” says Ayre. “Our TV proposition wagers are yet another way that we can offer a complete and interactive entertainment experience.”
