Michael J. Fox Breaks Silence on the Fate of The Michael J. Fox Show

Posted by monique On March - 12 - 2014 0 Comment

“The Michael J. Fox Show” was an NBC show that seemed to be a little dead on arrival, to be honest. It had the best of intentions–it’s based on Fox’s own life, juggling family life while living with Parkinson’s Disease. But the show itself was both saccharine and dry. It was also odd–the tone was such that it made many viewers–including this writer–feel odd to laugh at a person who was suffering from such a debilitating disease.

In any case, it goes without saying that “The Michael J. Fox Show” was pulled with the rest of the episodes awaiting an airdate. But Fox isn’t bitter about the show’s stalled life.

“When we got our initial time slot [Thursdays at 9:30 p.m.], we got nervous,” he said. “We thought, ‘Hopefully, they have a plan for bringing people here.’ But we were up against CBS, [which had] that ‘Big Bang Theory’ juggernaut, and there as no remedy for it. So you just plow ahead and continue to make the show better. Was I disappointed by the ratings? It probably has to do with what I deal with on a day-do-day basis, but I don’t process things that way. I don’t feel bad. I don’t feel angry. I don’t feel like I need to point fingers about time slots and things like that.”

There’s more of Fox’s thoughts on his series at The Hollywood Reporter. What did you think about “The Michael J. Fox Show”? Give your opinions in the comments section below.
