Fans of the series V are continuing to find that it's going to be a really hard haul for the show on a couple of fronts. With the second season getting underway and being just half a season, not getting a full commitment up front with only ten episodes starting in the doldrums of January, it didn't inspire a whole lot of faith. The second episode of the season, "Serpent's Tooth," has also given the series its second lowest ratings overall since it began in the first season. This episode got just a 3.3/5 rating which matched "No ORdinary Family" which itself hit it's all time low, deservedly so with what many consider its worst episode yet. V had an 18 percent loss from its season premiere last week and overall is now averaging a 40 percent smaller audience than ABC averaged in the timeslot a year ago.
Want to see how things could be worse for V fans? With a growing number of people looking to online episodes as they cut the TV cord, or just hoping to catch an episode they missed because of, you know, massive storms across the country that cut power or delayed travel, ABC is no longer providing episode only on its site or via Hulu. The company has produced only a single statement regarding it:
Fellow V fans,
It is with much regret that we must inform you that full episodes of V will not be available on ABC.com or Hulu for Season 2. Just like you, we truly wish full episodes were playing here. But we also hope our detailed recaps will keep you informed and entertained should you ever miss an episode.
