Fox Sets Mob Doctor End Date, Pushes Touch Season 2 Back Another Week

Fox is tweaking Touch‘s return date as well as scheduling the apparent series finale of The Mob Doctor.

Touch — which was originally set to launch Season 2 in late fall, and then was moved to Feb. 1 — will now return Feb. 8 with a two-hour premiere.

Also, the network has confirmed that final salvo of The Mob Doctor‘s 13- (and likely only 13-) episode freshman run will air Saturday, Dec. 29, Monday, Dec. 31, Saturday, Jan. 5 and Monday, Jan. 7 — all at 9/8c.

Officially, a Fox rep says no decision has been made about a second season for Mob Doc — but the writing is on the wall. After starting out soft and only getting softer, the freshman drama’s ratings have ticked up the past several weeks, though its total audience still barely broaches 4 million, while the demo rating hovers just above a 1.0.

  • Is it just me or does it seem like FOX is trying to get ‘Touch’ canceled? people are going to move on to other shows and/or won’t remember much of Season 1 by the time Season 2 finally starts.

      • i think the 4 millon people who watch mobdoctor should get a petition to get the show back. i guess they really dont care about what the people want just their ratings.i dont like that they are able to just cancel a show like that. maybe they should advertise that a show is just a trial.

        • I feel the same way because each I start getting into a show they cancel it. They should advertise that any new show is just a promo or trial so don’t bother getting into. Now the mob doctor is getting exciting the are canceling not fair!!!!!!!

        • I agree. The Mob Doctor is one of the best shows on TV right now. It is also only 1 of 2 shows I watch on fox. Maybe if nothing else a network with better connections and better promotions of their shows to take it over. I wouldn’t have even known about the show if I hadn’t seen an ad in a magazine.

          • That’s because it hasn’t been *officially* cancelled yet. But there’s zero chance it will survive. It’s got terrible ratings, and was banished to a burnoff. It’s not coming back.

        • I agree…while my husband and I think Fox News is the worst…lead people around by the nose…they have canceled the two shows we bother to watch and really enjoyed, “The Gifted Man” full of great messages and now the Mob Doctor that at least is interesting. The movie time is more ads than news and that alone has almost caused us to give up on the TV completely…now another movie worth watching is falling to the ax so the crappy Reality Shows and garbage comedies can go on.

          • Fox News is a completely separate channel. Although the Fox Broadcasting Company, which produces television shows, is owned by the same company “Fox Entertainment Group”, it is entirely different. Please keep this in mind next time you attempt to lump things together erroneously.

          • True I think They roll dice and if the show loses the roll it is out. How else could they make millons for bring so stupid. Not just fox all the tv stations. One station brought back a so called loser show and it became a hit. But they still dropped it. another cable station picked it up and it ran. I can no longer get that station, canceled by cable co. could not reach deal.That station used to pick up a lot of shows, would start with was already out and if it did good they would order more if possible. problem some of the actors had moved to other shows.

        • I agree with you 100000% this show was interesting I enjoyed it I hate that it got so good and now all of a sudden there is no more mob doctor shake my head they are lucky they at least had 4 million people who watched it it could of been a big fail from the get go and could of gotten a smaller number of viewers I vote bring back mob doctor !!!! Hello fox open your eyes think bout what the viewers want and there opinions on this not be selfish and only think about your ratings or anything else !!!!

        • I’ve been hoping that mob doctor would be returning soon. I agree, it doesn’t seem to matter about the millions who loved the MD. I felt that a few more episodes would have made a difference. I was so busy at work and too tired for tv in the evenings caused me a late start with a really good series. I’d love to see it return.

      • I completely agree. I go to work talking about the show everyone I’ve told about has watch and loved it even my sister a mother of 6 and still works 4 days a week makes time in her crazy schedule to watch mob doctor. They tease us with a glimpse of a really great show and then take it away from us. If there were more shows like mob doctor I’d always be tuned in instead of flicking through the guide for endless hours searching for something decent to watch.

          • Has a great real life story line…why would Fox fill in with so many goofy Kids type of shows when there are so many already give the adult viewing public a break!

            Comment by Mary – January 8, 2013 12:54 PM PDT  
        • I loved the Mob Doctor, too. Wasn’t too sure about another mobster show but it was good! I also happened to be a fan of Lie to Me (except sometimes with the accent couldn’t understand his lines which is true on a lot of network shows lately). BUT, it’s no different than the other networks like ABC and NBC who cancelled Harry’s Law and a few years back, Pushing Daisies. I guess if it’s not a “reality” show or contest show of some sort, or if there isn’t someone sleeping with another’s spouse – - – well, it’s not pulling enough interest? And, what about Made in Jersey, CBS? You pulled that; I heard it was still airing in Canada and now it was back with a number of episodes. Again, a wholesome show; let’s hope it holds on!! What a shame!

          • i loved the mob doctor also. i am finding that the tv company’s cancell everything except reality shows with washed up actors in it like that paris hilton crap that made a couple of seasons or what about that highly inteligent series the kerdashians and kloe and so and so take new york or some city like that. seriously people get a life. what is so interesting watching very rich people make fools of themselves? does it make you feel better about your self watching them get drunk and make a stupid scene so the media can catch it and make it news. watch AFV for that. if people would quit watching that crap they would keep decent tv shows for longer than one season.

        • I agree completely with everyones assessment, the show is definitely getting better and better. I really do hope they put on a 2nd season. The show started out with growing pains but with the great writing that they have you can see how more complicated and interesting the show is getting. Love it!

      • yes, Im with you. I Love the Mob Doctor . Its one of the best shows on TV. I think they should give it a chance and leave it on ONE night. Quit moving it around I think they want it to fail. Fox is not that good of a network anyway they need the mob doctor.

        • If Fox would leave it on a constant schedule, maybe it would have more viewers. But Fox is just like ABC, something good comes along and they cancel it, but you can bet your ass their going to keep The housewives of somewhere, mean girls or pregnant teens, which all are such good examples for women/girls!!! It still amazes me that in most industries, the one’s making the decisions, are the ones who don’t have enough sense to come in out of the rain!!!

      • i agree, i wish the tv company’s would quit cancelling shows after one season. it shows incompitence on their part.. Did they not research or put much thought into the show before they aired? Instead of cancelling the series why not spend those millions on upgrading the show. i am signing up for netflix and cancelling my tv listings on my dish as everytime there is a show i like it is cancelled even with 4-5 million viewers. then i have to invest my time into getting interested in another show even though it will more than likely be cancelled after one season. is there many shows that make it past one season. i bet it must be around 5 percent of new shows get another year. Hey newsflash tv mogoul maybe it was a crappy time slot!!!

      • I can’t believe that idiotic shows like Anger Management, Honey Boo Boo and all these reality tv shows (I know, different networks…nonetheless) are on and they’re cancelling a great show like The Mob Doctor. I love this show and looked forward to watching it every week. I don’t really blame Fox, they gotta go with the ratings, I blame the IDIOTS out there for watching brainless, asinine tv shows instead.

  • Save the Mob Doctor! The Mob Doctor is the new Fringe. I would like to see more episodes and would watch it on Friday evenings. What they should cancel is that Kitchen’s Nightmare show that is supposed to come back. Blech. Mob Doctor and Touch on Friday nights would be a good one-two punch.

    We need more scripted dramas! Enough with the reality shows and talent(?) competitions.

      • I agree 100% all the good shows are being taken off the air and more shows about killing people seem to be hitting the charts. Makes one wonder if these stations actually care about the effect they are having on the public. These shows have desensitised the nation.

    • I agree Renee. I really like this show. I think The Mob Doctor has tremendous potential. I also feel that if it gets a second chance, it will boost Fox’s ratings. The problem is that there are too many young people who don’t get the premise of the show and would rather watch Glee or some other trash. It’s the same problem we have with our politics. Young, uninmormed, tempermental young people who don’t realize good things when they see them.

  • Fox should have kept Chicago Code and Lie to Me, because right now they have NOTHING but an aging Bones and a “die a slow death” Glee.

    • Bones desperately needs more ACTION, as well as some “believable” affection between Booth and Brennan! I have loved this show over the years, especially David Boreanaz. However, I see it dying, right before our eyes. The writers are killing Bones.

    • Absofreakinglutely. I should have seen the writing on the wall though—’Lie to Me’ was actually doing well in the ratings, even as they shuffled it all over the schedule, and Fox STILL canned it. Should’ve realized Mob Doc would be given no chance at all after that. ‘Lie to Me’ was a fantastic show…also wouldnt mind seeing Chicago Code and even the criminally underrated popcornish “The Good Guys” back. Damn you Fox, stop cancelling all of these great shows!!!!! ARGH!!! =)

      • The Good Guys was awesome, but the ratings were awful. Right now my big beef with Fox is that they don’t release many of these one season shows on DVD. Where is The Good Guys? Where is The Finder?

    • That’s right! I’m not a big fan of Touch and don’t watch Mob Doctor (the whole series premise sounded horrible to me), I didn’t even realize that Touch hadn’t even started season 2 yet. Fox doesn’t know how to give scripted dramas a chance. After this season I’ll only be watching the network for Bones and Raising Hope, although I too am hoping that good things come from The Following (I’m really looking forward to it).

  • I enjoy watching The Mob Doctor! I really wish they DON’T cancel. I was SO upset they cancelled Alcatraz last season! I think it was a Fox show. I like Dr. Grace’s story… how she tells stories from her childhood then are relevant to her current situations. PLEASE Fox DON’T cancel.

    Comment by Erica Cruz – November 28, 2012 11:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Its no surprise that FOX keeps pushing back the premiere of Touch. Honestly I can’t see this show doing much for FOX when it does return. Hopefully The Following hits because that show actually looks pretty good.

  • Wasn’t sure about the Mob Doc in the beginning, but each episode has gotten better and the last 2-3 episodes have been great. Hope they give it a chance for another season. It is growing, just not fast enough.

    • I love mob doctor. Each episode has gotten better than the last. I hope they don’t cancel it. I would to see it moved to Friday night also. Friday nights have nothing good on. I liked chicago code also. Wow I am surprised more people don’t like it. And tonight they hinted that Constantine is her father, what a great twist.

    • I agree with all who said it took til’ the 3rd episode or so and I agree Friday’s are a good night. And, now, after reading a lot of these comments, I wish I’d have seen Chicago Code.

  • It’s clear the Mob Doctor is getting cancelled. The deadline to announce a back nine was before Thanksgiving. At least it’s airing all the episodes. The Following may have a following. Touch getting pushed back is not a good sign.

  • Sigh, sometimes I wonder why I bother with new serial dramas anymore. They all seem to get cancelled before they take off, leaving me bitter, LOL. Also never understood the hate directed at “Mob Doctor”…even if you dont like Spiro (who I thought was at the very least COMPETENT at the role, hell, I even liked ), you have Forsythe and Ivanek (sp?), two fantastic actors, in the cast.

    • I feel the same way about new shows. I loved GBC and they cancelled it. Body of Proof is barely hanging on and they are getting rid of that, Last Resort is getting the axe…. it all sucks

        • I didn’t say it was getting cancelled did I — I said it was barely holding on. They got rid of half of the original cast and held it off until it became a winter filler. That is a huge step down from a season regular show

  • I liked Mob Doctor —- I think with the new reveal about Franco they opened up some amazing avenues for storylines. But I think Monday night is not a good night for it. It has too much competition against Castle and Hawaii 5-0

    • The Mob Doctor is not up against Hawaii Five-0 and Castle.

  • Wow… I guess I’m the only person anywhere who really loved Touch, huh? I never really thought it would make it to a season 2 because its subject matter is so spiritual and television these days seems to be a much more visceral experience… people want to see blood and gore mixed in with their drama. I’m really rooting for Touch to make it, but as Fox doesn’t seem to be interested in supporting it (surprise, surprise), I’m trying not to get my hopes up.

  • I think I’m going to stop watching these new series because these networks seem to cancel them far too early: 666 Park Avenue & The Mob Doctor were (are) finally starting to get interesting. I’m fed up with the early cancellations and it seems to get worse every year!

  • It was a terrible low quailty show to begin with, only watched the first episode. They had been filming in my neighborhood since September (NIGHTMARE!) and it totally surpised me when the notices went around that they are filming scenes again this weekend, totally don’t get why. Well, glad to hear it’s finally going to be gone for good.

    • Wait, you only watched the Pilot, and that means the rest of the show is terrible? Lots of shows that ended being legendary had terrible Pilots…some even had 2nd episodes that were completely different from the Pilot, since they often get filmed months afterwards. Now, I’m not saying MD was going to be legendary, but to say it was always AWFUL, I’m sorry, I just dont get it.

  • Glad at least some other people liked it! I find the Mob doctors to be intriguing. And after last nights show I am really curious where they wanted to go with the story line. Spiro is great and I loved her in my boys. Fox is really holding on by a thread though…

  • Loved Mob Doctor but agree it needs to be on Friday nights! Fox needs to redo their line up and give the show a second chance. The last three episodes have really unfolded a good storyline.

  • It just astounds me as to where these ratings come from…..The two best shows which have aired on Fox the past year were “Chicago Code” and the “Mob Doctor” and both of those are (or were) cancelled and they are bringing back “Touch”???? Keifer Sutherland must be one of Foxes major shareholders. “24″ was dynamite but “Touch”????? Give me a break!

  • I would love to see the Mob Doctor on Friday nights. But what I would like see the fox network do is buy the Knight Rider franchise and team it & The Mob Doctor shows together. 1 on at 9 and the other at 10.

I’m sick of networks canceling shows after one season and then the next season they come out with some even worse! The mob doctor is pretty good and that Franco and Matt characters are way gorgeous…

  • Chicago Code was awesome and just started watching Mob Doctor and it sucks as usual that good shows always get the shaft. Maybe we can hope for another Reality Show? LOL

    Oh and I thought The Finder was boring so I was glad to see that go. It was a good concept but the horrible acting made it hard to watch.

  • Really miss Chicago Code and now Mob Dr. leaving too? It makes me sick. They are both great shows. Why do the good shows leave and the ridiculously stupid shows remain? I don’t get it. Maybe they should pick a different time to air. Whatever it takes. Please bring back Chicago Code and Mob Dr.!!! :(

    They do what they want.

  • i am with most of you – tired of watching anything new the moment you get into the show – watch it and look forward to it – they get cancelled! tv now really sucks – they seem to keep the crappy shows (ok some good) but the bad out weight the good shows – they cancell fringe, the finder, good guys, the mob doctor, last report – and this is to only name a few that do have followers – what they do not include in the internet viewership which is alot – some like myself when a new show that is good comes out but is only on days/times that you are already watching somethng else – we either PVR or watch on the net – i think i am just going to give up TV shows all together and stick with movies – at least you know when the are done – no expectations – sad that TV has come to this :(

  • Another reason why I try not watch anything on Fox. Mob Doctor has the potential to be really great and it will never the chance. If the X-Files debuted today it would have been cancelled by the third episode.😢

The mob doctor & 666 park avenue isn’t full of idiots screaming their heads off or wann-a-bees howling up on a stage but both sure held the attention of their audiences. Thank you, FOX, for getting the attention of a lot of people & then dropping the ball – I think FOX will now be on my parental controls!!
