Is it worth it to continue with 'Alcatraz' and 'The River'?

I've had some bad luck with television shows in the past and it looks like I could be going down that same path again.

I got hooked on ABC's "V" and "Flash Forward" and Fox's "Human Target" not too long ago, only to have the shows end with cliffhangers and no conclusion.

I was a fan of TNT's comedy "Men of a Certain Age," only to learn it was canceled early. Same thing with the cop drama "Dark Blue."

I got a reprieve with AMC's "The Walking Dead," which might be my favorite right now.

But I waded into some new shows the last couple of weeks only to find out they could be canceled.

Yes, I'm one of the apparent few that watch "Alcatraz" and "The River."

And, you know what? I'm into 'em.

It just remains to be seen how much longer I'll have to enjoy them.

Maybe I should just bail before I get caught up in each show.

What do you think?

At least I can fall back on "The Mentalist" and "Leverage."

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
