    Any fans of this show here?

    WAAHH!!! :( It's been cancelled. One of only three shows that I watch regularly.

    This sucks. How come quality shows get cancelled, and most of the mindless tripe gets renewed year after year?:mad:

    I know...I used to be a fan of CHiPS:)! Its all about the ratings my friend. Do you know any Nielsen families? I don't.:mad:
     
  3. Does "Whose Line is it Anyway?" still exist, I haven't seen that in ages.

    Family Guy gets cancelled, Men Behaving Badly gets cancelled, but Will and Grace survives :confused:. I wont even bother mentioning all the reality shows.

    I don't watch tv... but I have a couple shows capped for me. Witchblade, Andromeda and Birds of Prey.

    I'm still waiting to download the 2 BoP that aired last week.

    :cool: Huntress :cool:

    too bad they canned it.... at least Buffy is still on :rolleyes:
     
  6. Never saw the show, but if it's any consolation, it's a kickass song by Uriah Heep!
     
  7. Because most of the public has trouble understanding anything one inch beyond mindless tripe. I also feel that shows get renewed/cancelled behind closed doors, not just by ratings.

    Gimmie the History channel.

    Whose Line is on at 9:00 and 9:30 weekday nights, on ABC Family. I don't know if they're still doing the primetime thing.

    :) yup that's the one. I've got the movie and both seasons saved for future viewing. I've heard rumors it will be gone soon too :(

    Summer series' generally don't last.

    I got turned on to Witchblade from a Tomb Raider walk thru book (second one, I think)... I thought the movie was pretty ok, the first season was mostly great, the second was ok... but a let down.

    I can't wait till the season 3 premier in June :)
     
  12. But the acting and story line in BoP was horrible!! Now if they were to bring Animaniacs back to sydicated TV......:D

    Rock on

    I recently got into "The Shield" on FX. My roommates are really into Buffy, so I've also seen my fair share of episodes. That's about all I watch anymore, especially since this season of The Simpsons is easily the worst one yet. It's just getting harder and harder to watch.
     
  14. Ok, so it is just the dumbass local station that decided not to show it anymore. Sometimes they would cancel Whose Line and Scrubs to show a one hour program about male models, either that or figure skating. I guess they figured they weren't getting enough female viewers.

    So does ANYONE out there know a Nielsen?? I can think of one (Leslie) who by the way had one very funny show by the name of Police Squad!:) How often does a t.v. show spin off onto the big screen (Naked Gun)?;)

    I was asked to be a Nielsen at one time, and didn't follow up on it before the opportunity passed me by.:(

    I love Buffy,(love my little redhaired witchbabe).
    I liked BoP.
    I REALLY liked Family Guy, Duckman, Futurama, Married With Children, and any number of mostly-animated shows that were aimed at older kids and grownups.
    Police Squad was actually cancelled because the audience had to pay attention.
