iZombie is better than I figured it would be. The Flash makes for a compatible enough lead-in. iZombie’s a niche show, but it’s on the right network, with showrunners who know how The CW works. Unless iZombie’s numbers drop, which is unlikely as it’s The CW’s fourth-highest-watched show so far this season, I think iZombie’s renewal is imminent. Hart of Dixie isn’t formally cancelled, but the sets are allegedly dismantled. Hart of Dixie already hit its syndication number; it’s not coming back.
Unless The Messengers becomes a freak hit for The CW – and when it airs Friday at 9:00 PM ET/PT, it has to be – iZombie is safe. It’s Rob Thomas trying to Buffy-ize Veronica Mars under DC Entertainment’s aegis, but that somehow works – and I hate the continuous elbowing of tropes that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Also, The Flash is still the best thing going for The CW in 2014-15. In other news, food turns to fecal matter in one’s digestive system.
