Voyagers! is an American science fiction television series created by James D. Parriott for NBC.

Premise Edit

The show follows Phineas Bogg, one of a society of time travelers called Voyagers who, with the help of a young boy named Jeffrey Jones from 1982, uses a hand-held device called an Omni (which looks very much like a large pocket watch) to travel in time and ensure that history unfolds as we know it.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

The show was broadcast opposite the top-rated 60 Minutes, averaging a 17 share, and seemed likely to be renewed for a second season; however, controversies in 60 Minutes reporting led executives to believe that 60 Minutes might be successfully challenged by a competing news program instead. NBC cancelled Voyagers! and replaced it with the news magazine program Monitor, which averaged only a 7 share.
