CBS Resurrecting Unforgettable?

Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh

If you were a fan of the CBS police procedural Unforgettable, then you'll be quite pleased after you read the following. It seems that CBS is reconsidering its decision to axe the series, which starred Without A Trace's Poppy Montgomery and Nip/Tuck's Dylan Walsh in the two lead roles.

The show featured Montgomery as NYC detective Carrie Wells, who possesses the abnormal ability to visually remember everything that has ever happened to her. She works alongside a team led by her ex-partner (and boyfriend) Lt. Al Burns, played by Walsh. Unlike most canceled series, Unforgettable's ratings were quite impressive (albeit not as much with the desired 18-49 demos), and were actually the highest overall numbers of any show to be canceled this year.

CBS is in talks with producers about doing a short (by broadcast network standards) season of thirteen episodes, which would be filmed this year and aired next summer. This would make it one of the highest profile scripted series to air during the summer months in quite a while, as most networks just program a bunch of reality shows during the summer, and leave the scripted programming to cable.

While a big four network un-canceling a series isn't very common, this decision isn't entirely without foreshadowing. When reporters asked CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler in May for an explanation as to why a show with such a solid ratings foundation got canceled, Tassler said that the real question was not "what went wrong with Unforgettable but what went right with the new pilots". I guess the new pilots didn't go quite as right as she thought they would.

Do you think Unforgettable deserves another shot to succeed? Or does another canceled CBS series deserve to come back even more?

The right decision, it's a solid show....is there hope for "The Finder" or "Awake"? Maybe even "Lie to Me"?...baby steps.

I try not to get attached to any one show because they always seem to cancel them to make way for more "reality" garbage but I did see every episode of Unforgettable and have enjoyed the series.
