    I went ot the “Lucifer” facebook page ,now gone btw, because they had on demand the trailer and it looks great the doctor fomr rush (a great show cancelled) plays Lucifer, there was sooo much rabble from the rabble rousers about god and how watching a fake show is making you go to He77 that facebook or more than likely FOX took the pagedown! so I’m very glad to see it is still airing, although i expect it wont for long,Fox cancels all the good shows!! Thank you for all the info!!

    Wow. we are turning into a society where religion is now the Player in what we watch as there are cultures that cannot allow everyone else to have any humour involved when it comes to any form of religion.

    What happened to the times when people had humour and things were taken far less seriously.

    Where did the average person disappear to. Why can’t we be permitted to laugh anymore at harmless things like the show “Lucifer”, its dark humour, harmless – yet it intrigues us all – what if Lucifer wanted time away – what would he do ?

    But as usual FOX has lost the plot like with all their good shows, they cancel them and move on to the next 4-8 eps of another show and cancel that, and then another and so on and so on.

    Maybe all at Fox should resign, they obviously do not watch TV.

      I like Lucifer too. I agree the best shows fox cancels. Dark Angel was a favorite of mine and they ended it on a clif hanger!

      I don’t think religion has anything to do with it – FOX has always been fast to cancel sci-fi, horror, and fantasy shows other than “The X-Files”, and “Lucifer” just hasn’t been pulling in much in the way of ratings. Unfortunately for us, FOX has always gotten more “bang” for its buck and more money for the ratings with reality TV. Genre fiction, film, and television has always tended to struggle in popular culture, in fact, with critics in particular turning noses up at it.

      I won’t blame religion for the struggles of genre television shows – I’ll blame the fact that popular culture has relatively little use for it, critics generally have no respect for it, and fans with pretensions toward armchair criticism tend to be really “finicky” about what they like.
