This show is going to be very interesting to follow. In years past, I’d say these reviews were good enough, and the family-friendliness of it all could carry it through. Plus it cost $24 million dollars; no one is going to want to close anytime soon. But this year is this year, and things are closing where they might have waited it out before. The Disney shows aren’t going anywhere, and there are all these Christmas-themed entertainment options for the next month or so, and are kids really that into Shrek anymore anyway? If not, and if the show just doesn’t sell, what happens then?
And if a big old family show like this one can’t withstand shaky reviews (and they’re not bad at all, really), what’s going to happen to everything else?
