“John From Cincinnati” airs tonight after “The Sopranos” and it’s gotten very few good reviews. The consensus is “HBO and David Milch gave up on ‘Deadwood’ for this?” Exactly. Apparently the show is confusing and filled with vague references; not very grounded in reality like, a western; and John, the title character, is simply annoying and not very engaging or charismatic.

The series is so bad that critics expect HBO subscriber defections after the series finale of “The Sopranos” tonight, since only “Big Love” and “John” are the only dramas supposed to keep people watching. Of course, there’s also “Entourage,” it’s entertaining but may not be enough to save the network from attrition. Stay tuned.
