ABC Cuts Three Episodes of ‘V’

Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva reports ABC has trimmed the episode order for V from 13 episodes down to 10. Originally expected to return for its second season in late November, ABC announced last week that V would return on Tuesdays at 9pm on January 4.

According to Ms. Andreeva, there was room for 12 episodes of V to air Tuesdays at 9pm before Dancing with the Stars returned for its spring edition, but ABC is expecting a couple of preemptions resulting in the need for fewer episodes. With the series still filming, the producers have time to adjust for fewer episodes.

This might be a blessing in disguise, at least now there will be little filler and they can get on with just giving us the best bits,
I found season 1 had to much filler.

I agree, I rather have 10 awesome episodes than a few episodes I find boring.

That's too bad - hopefully the ratings will be strong for the 10 we do get so that there are more next year. Doesn't sound positive though does it?

What's that going to follow? I haven't watched anything on abc this year I don't think so I don't know if 9 pm Tuesdays is a good or a bad spot now that Lost is gone.

Better 10 good episodes than 13 boring ones.

Aww man...I hope this isn't forboding news. :(

I had a hard time getting into the show initially (found some of the characters much too stiff and disinteresting...particularly the huge focus on the teenage love storyline :roll: ) but I'd like to see what S2 will have to offer in the way of more streamlined storylines and a focus now on the danger that the V's pose.

Like you guys said already, I just hope this will encourage the writers to produce strong stories for the episodes that will be aired. :unsure:

Seems to me like the network suits are going to 'Flashforward' this show to death... :x

I have been much better at following this show than I was FF, but I have to admit that it has taken a very devoted effort to stay with it.

If it succumbs to the mindless dribble that is corporate mentality, I at least hope TPTB allow it to have decent closure, and not leave those of us who have stuck with it to be completely screwed...

Darn :(

Hopefully the 10 episodes they do make will rate very high, and that it will warrant the continuation for more seasons to come.
