So few viewers are watching that this vote is probably for a lost cause: big mistake, America.
8 PROFIT (Fox) In the year’s stupidest programming move, Fox canceled this strikingly original series after a scant four episodes.
This season, Anthony La Paglia replaced Benzali and offered a hero who was prickly and arrogant in a more engaging way.
The Waltons’ Ralph Waite has been a marvelous skunk of a baddie, and Missy Crider’s work as a hapless murder defendant who also happened to be, as one character puts it, ”a major hottie,” gave One a fresh jolt of energy.
And I can’t think of another sitcom that repays taping and repeated viewing as well.
So far, the David-less new season has been uneven but agreeably wacky.
High point thus far: Michael Richards’ Kramer accidentally entering the corporate world and having his entire business career rise and fall in the space of 30 minutes.
You probably don’t remember, but Profit was a wittily bleak show about corporate shark and high-functioning sociopath Jim Profit (the magnificently oily Adrian Pasdar), who’d been raised in a cardboard box and parented by an always-turned-on TV set.
Less a dig at big business than a fulmination against all media culture, Profit was the funniest scary drama of the year.
