LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The journey is coming to an end for NBC's freshman series "Journeyman."<br><br>
NBC had until Tuesday to give a full-season pickup to the time-travel drama starring Kevin McKidd. The network let that option lapse, practically canceling the series, which posted its lowest adults 18-49 rating (1.7 rating/8 share) on Monday without a "Heroes" lead-in. The network already tried out fellow rookie "Life" in "Journeyman"'s Monday 10 p.m. slot last week.<br><br>
Despite the Hollywood writers strike, "Journeyman" was able to complete its 13-episode order.<br><br>
The remaining two original segments will air as scheduled, an NBC spokeswoman said.<br><br>
NBC recently handed out full-season pickups to two of its four rookie scripted series, "Life" and "Chuck."<br><br>
Since the production of most scripted series has been suspended because of the strike, such orders are considered a vote of confidence to the shows and a potential renewal for next season if the additional episodes can't be produced by the end of this season.

I have all of Journeyman on DVR - haven't had the chance to watch it yet. Ah well, I'll try not to get too attached...

You're in for a great treat!! I hope they release it on DVD, too! I was deleting my eps as I went along.... The best new show really. I don't get how it's getting canned. No wonder NBC is in last place among the networks. They are idiots.

Saving them all for future reference - <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
On the plus side - They are airing it over here, and I have the last few episodes to watch over and over again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

At least BBCA are showing Life on Mars series 2 now!! I already have seen it, as I bought the DVD this summer, but it will be nice to see it again! It's as close to Journeyman as we can get I guess. *sigh*

Somewhat similar to Quantum Leap - except he always returns home back to his present after each "mission" (actually several times during the same mission because he'll follow a person in the past through multiple years.)
