There are a lot of shows that have gotten canceled that I think would have done good if they just moved them to a different time or day. Just this past Saturday I was noticing there was not one thing on during prime time I wanted to watch. And I have satellite TV. Why is that? What happens on Saturday that makes them not schedule anything?

that, and there are so many options for watching.  i am usually in bed no later than 9.  anything after 8 i DVR.  there are sometimes two shows on at the same time and i watch one and DVR the other.  if they are not counting the recorded shows or the ones watched on line, they have no idea how many people are watching.  they end up thinking that those stupid reality shows are what everyone wants and the shows that require a little intellect and imagination, get canceled.  Kings getting canceled after one season still ticks me off.  it was a great multi-layered show with great casting.  they didn't even give it a chance.

Well frak.    I just thought I was falling asleep to early.  At least they are showing SGU at 9:00 for me (special request).

I thought the idea was brilliant. We always wanted to know how it all started.  We were just getting into the story.

I guess 13 episodes was enough.

It looks on imdb site that it is still on the air in Canada, but the last 4 episodes will come out on dvd Dec 21 here in the US.  Why?  So much for me waiting it anytime soon.

The last five episodes are showing tomorrow starting at 6pm eastern time, 5pm central.

Perhaps if millions of people tune in they will bring it back  :idunno:

Thank you so much to letting me know that.   I was going to go work out tomorrow, but now I will be on the couch.   

At least they are showing it and not just throwing the episodes in the trash.

Well I stayed up to catch it all.   Just how could they can that show?  I think these 5 episodes are much better than the rest of the season.
