Already after the first episode of «Manhattan» television series was broadcast, critics started to talk negatively about the future of the given TV-project.
The fact, that the premiere was being watched by 0,94 million viewers and during the broadcast the given number dropped to 0,34, couldn’t be considered positive for the show, as such a decrease of the interest always results in the closing of the television series. But not this time…
