ABC Gives V Just 10 Episodes for Season Two

Victory may not be in the cards for the human race this time around.  This is the reason I haven’t started watching V yet.  I feared the worst for this series from the very beginning.  Let’s face it, Sci-Fi shows don’t do very well on network TV.

I hear the order of ABC’s sophomore sci-fi drama V is being reduced from 13 to 10 episodes. ABC last week announced that V will return January 4 and will air in Dancing with the Stars‘ result show slot at 9 PM on Tuesdays, following fellow sci-fi drama No Ordinary Family. That gives V a 12-episode window until the spring season premiere of Dancing on March 29, but I hear the period is expected to include 2 preemptions, leading to V’s order getting trimmed. Since the series is still filming, V producers will adjust the storyline for a proper season ending.
