I watched "Vanished." I didn't think it was that great, but it was good enough to follow up "Prison Break." But Fox totally fucked the show over.

1. Kill off main character.
2. Put show on 3 week hiatus during MLB playoffs.
3. Change show to new night. FRIDAY, of all nights.

I never bothered to watch the one episode that aired after the baseball break, because I felt sure it would get the axe.

Kind of reminded me of Fox's "John Doe," actually. That was a good show that got canned way too soon.
