SInce there's been a discussion of which channel ouside of NBC would best suit the show has come up for sometime, I've decided to create this poll thread to express which channel would get Constantine in the event of the big C and if Cerone and Goyer want to shop the show around to a new home.

 

 

HBO and Showtime are omitted from the polls due to their belief of comic adaptations being beneath them; especially HBO since their content in passing on Preacher and continue to adapt mediocre books into shows. Netflix is also omitted on the grounds of the Marvel deal (i.e. Daredevil, The Defenders).The CW is also omitted and with many reasons. One of which being they'd sooner have it be more in line with the New 52 as Arrow and The Flash in tone and storytelling. The other being it can't co-exist on a network with the very show it nicked bits and pieces from (i.e. Supernatural) and the network's unable to let it end since its creator wanted it to end after season five.

 

 

 

Annnd GO!

There's SyFy, FX, or TNT.

 

Syfy because it seems like a good home for Constantine. Plus SyFy was the station that replayed old episodes of Constantine while it was going to episode 5 premiere. So if NBC ever quit on Constantine, SyFy could pick them up for a season 2.

 

FX is more of a last resort.

 

TNT is a pretty good choice since it could easily play Constantine with its dark style and comic book atmosphere.

Especially since they've gotten away with their ratings juggernaut in the Librarians of late

I prefer British Broadcaster like Channel 4 and Sky.

 

But HBO also looks promising.

 

I said HBO's omitted. In a pre-Michael Lombardo era of the network, it would be right at home (much like how Spawn was back in the day) but now it'll get rejected just like Preacher. Not unless Time Warner (which owns them along side DC, Cinemax and New Line) strongarms Lombardo into taking the show though it might trigger potential resentment to where he may want to kill the show stone dead.

AMC. But it's so rare that a canceled show ever resurfaces on another network. I know they sometimes do, but it must be a real low percentage.

Longmire*

Arrested Development*

Get Smart (NBC kicked it to the curb at the end of the 1968-69 season but CBS picked it up for one more year)

Medium (see above)

Futurama

The Critic (canned by ABC one year, later revived and canned by FOX the following year)

Home Movies (UPN killed it only for a newly launched Adult Swim to resurrect it three years later)

American Dad (FOX axed it last spring and TBS immediately picked it up)

Community (once NBC's is now Yahoo's)

 

And that's just off the top of my head

 

 

*Special cases as they were Network2Stream Service transitions

Family Guy's still the posterchild for it

 

It's also the posterchild for why it can be a terrible thing, but that's ok

Except it came back to the same network. Adult Swim repeats and the DVD sales was what brought it back

Went straight trough giving a comment and did not see your comment, sorry.

 

But yeah, still stand on British Broadcaster such as Channel 4 or Sky since they can capture the Britain feel like in the comic, especially London. Then the show will feel right at home for comic readers.

 

BBC might be to risky.

I'd put $$ down on it being SyFy (still hate that name). It's under the NBC/Universal banner. Easier to shift there, that way they can say they are still supporting it..blah blah blah.

USA Network might be a strong second. But they don't really do this sort of programming, going more for safer material.

Not in the last 23 years since they had Swamp Thing, at least. But it wouldn't hurt them to try especially now to win back the viewers they may lose over the cancellations of Rush and Covert Affairs

Again, HBO is excluded unless the Time Warner strong arms the network into jumping on the comic book show bandwagon (and its unlikely to happen at this time)

if preacher gets to be adapted on AMC, ol' conjob would fit right in there.

And sadly, it had to be at the hands of Rogen and Goldberg of all people..... Fuck.

SyFy or BBC America seem the best bet.

 

Constantine is is right up Syfy's Alley and BBC America which recently had AMC buy a 20% stake of is looking to make more original content.

 

I don't see any of the other Networks going for it.

I can't see the BBC paying for any fancy american TV show.

Maybe if you pay more for Doctor Who.

 

We don't get SyFy so Netflix or Amazon for me.

It comes high up Amazon Prime's TV shows. Even topped Ripper Street now that's been out on the air for a couple of months.
