New Wonder Woman TV series may not be aired at all

After all the controversies that came up previously, now it looks like NBC may not pick up the new WW series at all:
...the scuttlebutt on the street (via EW) says that Wonder Woman, after testing "mixed-to-negative" and receiving a public flogging for costume choice, is looking like a longshot to make the schedule.
All that controversy was for nothing?!? If they've already filmed a pilot episode, does that mean it'll only be viewable on YouTube in a few years, and even then might not be worth the effort? Good grief.

On the other hand, if there's something based on a comic that's actually been canceled, it's Human Target, based on the troubleshooting character of Christopher Chance (via Spoiler TV). As sad as that is, I think this recent take on the subject at Big Hollywood a few months ago could explain why it happened. I also wonder if the studio's jettisoning the official disguise gimmick Christopher Chance usually used in the comics was another contributing factor in the TV series' downfall. If one of the cleverest concepts is removed from the translation to live action, surely that doesn't take away the real potential for interest?

Update: Entertainment Weekly now confirms NBC has rejected the WW series altogether.

I know. "I got all outrangeous outraged for nothing!"

Actually, if nothing else, it awakened my now love for the character and the concept. While I'll never be a fan of Kelley or his politics, I'm grateful his project revived an appreciation (for the first time) of Wonder Woman. So, yeah, still relieved it isn't going to happen, as we all would havw wanked about it, anyway. But, at least, there was a pleasant side effect, personally speaking.
