    Wouldn't that just be making a show that is trying to be serious and realistic more serious and realistic? I mean, I doubt there are too many people walking up to Senators and VP's saying, "Dude, you got a Dell!".

    This is another one on my list of incredibly stupid shows that is a bad soap opera at night. Someone is watching that crap, or it would not be on.

    Even my wife has lost interest in the Bachelor / Bachelorette series. It is so orchestrated. There will always be a guy or gal that is a complete idiot that will keep getting a rose until they are down to 5 or 6, just so women will have someone to tune in and hate every week.

    You mean having a Subway restaurant in every TV show isn't by accident? Or actors showing off all the gadgets in cars, or the latest and greatest in windows computers being on shows?

    I think Monk did start on network TV and got moved to USA, due to viewership issues.

I watched about the first 4 episodes, but it was SO stupid. I like science fiction and fantasy, and have a pretty strong ability for suspension of disbelief, but that show was just too much.

    The good TV sitcom is approaching extinction. While some shows are bad it's hard for a show to get a following when the first sign of bad ratings appear the network pulls the plug. I wonder what shows that had a long stint in 80's and 90's would have never made it in today's age of TV.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    Kind of sad that Intelligence got the axe, because that show had a lot of potential, but I'm not surprised by it - the writing and sometimes the acting never came close to the potential the show had.

    Meghan Ory can go back to playing Red on Once Upon A Time now.

    They failed with me then. I never would have known that Pepsi... whatever it is... was in that scene, and I've watched that movie dozens of times.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    Some of those shows looked so terrible before they even started airing...it makes you wonder what the pool of new TV shows is like if executives at those companies are signing off on airing these shows.

    Re: List of shows getting cancelled

    Growing up Fisher was pretty funny. The rest on that list I either hadn't heard of, or deserved getting canceled. If they could only cancel half of the police dramas on TV now. Most overrated genre ever.

    Edit: just noticed the X Factor was canceled. Ha ha! I hate simon cowell. Anything that's bad news for him makes me happy.

    Community was a good show, but has ran it's course. Shouldn't it have been over after two years anyway? Just sayin'.
