Loving/The City Discussion Thread

In it's second week on air Loving dropped from a 4.9/18 share to a 3.9/10.

So there was initial interest but then ratings dropped.

That was probably expected.

 

As I recall it was very slow start from a plotline perspective.

 

Of course, Geraldine Page and Lloyd Bridges' characters were never seen or heard from again after the pilot.  So the fun and promise of the melodrama from the first episode didn't translate into the first weeks/months.

 

And Lily and Jack storyline with her abusive father didn't start until closer to the summer months.  So, there was a lot of introductions and exposition to get through in the first few weeks.

That  4.9/18 was great!  To bad the bottom dropped right out of it. Was Mimi Rogers in it?

In hindsight, it seems like a mistake to burn through a TV-movie's worth of storylines. That could have carried the show for a good couple of months. Also, Roger comes across as a total horndog, reuniting with Ann and then ending up with Merrill in less than two hours.

I loved The City and I loved PC ... I even loved A Daytime to Remember. I just missed out on Loving except for the last 3 weeks of it - the murder.
