I thought it was a Canadian production that was aired on Canadian Television that NBC just picked up, because I watched it several months ago before it aired in the states.
Just found this:
"Americans have stopped listening to The Listener, but Canadians still can eavesdrop for now.
NBC has decided it will not air new episodes of the Canadian and Toronto-set drama The Listener after next week, leaving five episodes on the shelf, due to low ratings in the United States.
In Canada, however, The Listener is a modest summertime hit and CTV will continue to air new episodes until the full 13-episode first season is complete.
What NBC's bailing means to the prospects of a second season for The Listener remains to be seen (or heard, as the case may be). "
I hope there is a second season. I thought it was better than most ABC entire lineup!!!
