Things are not looking too good for new drama, Undercovers, starring Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.  The show's ratings have defiinitely taken a plunge.
Here is what The Hollywood Reporter is reporting:
Some mixed news for NBC on Wednesday: The network's latest "Law & Order" franchise entry "Los Angeles" had a solid series premiere, but ratings for the second week of spy series "Undercovers" slipped dangerously low.

"LOLA" (10.6 million viewers, 3.2 adults 18-49 rating) grew from its "Law & Order: SVU" (9.9 million, 2.8) lead-in and clearly won 10 p.m.

At 8 p.m., though, "Undercovers" (7.2 million, 1.6) dropped 24% for Week 2 to place fourth in its slot.

Though its fall was arguably the most dramatic, "Undercovers" wasn't without company. Most shows slipped this week, and one went even lower -- ABC's "The Whole Truth" (4.6 million, 1.2) is firmly an at-risk show, down 20%. source

I will admit that I've watched the first two episodes of the show and I'm not feeling it.  I was hoping it would grow on me, but it hasn't.  The writing and the acting is not up to par.  I enjoy watching the eye candy that is Boris Kodjoe, but I'm sorry that just isn't enough to keep me interested.  I'm going to continue to watch and pray that it gets better, but right now mama's not happy.  I've watched other J.J. Abrams' shows and I know he is capable of somuch better.
Have you watched 'Undercovers?'  What do you think of the show?

  1. As an african-american and an admirer of Alias and Lost I thought this was going to be an exceptional series.Instead what was presented was a scizophrenic comedy/drama. It does not work. Also the storyline that the "undercover's" partner is the wife's former lover doesn't work. I would recommend that they recast the series as a serious drama or else it will die.
