WHEN MUSIC POPS, WE TURN IT UP

damn those TV cancellations!

damn those TV cancellations!
November 30, 2005 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


oh it’s all fun and games in the beginning of the fall when a bunch of new television shows try to grab our attention & viewership – the buzz is everywhere but then around this time of year – the cancellations start to flow in…shows lay slain in the gutter…i am very upset about two shows being cancelled (and soon there will be a very big third upset if FOX does indeed pull the plug on arrested development – which i know they will)



first up is reunion – okay i admit this show is a drop cheesy – but the storyline is so damn addictive – i don’t know if i can bear not finding how the whole thing wraps up – i’m a bit surprised with the big ‘OC’ lead-in that this show didn’t fare better in the ratings war – plus what a neat concept for a show (very quickly it’s about a group of high school student friends involved in a murder mystery – that spans 20 years from their graduation up until the present – each episode is one year – told via flashbacks from the present) – the music was also great as they went by each year – there will still be some more episodes airing on FOX (like tomorrow night) – i really hope they let this season play out its 20 episodes…we shall see – at least let them play out on DVD…i need to know what happens!



second up is the apprentice: martha stewart – personally i got so sick of watching donald trump do this show – so i found martha stewart to be refreshing and a nice switch up – i really think what killed it was the fact that donald also ran a new season in tandem with martha – so two nights of ‘the apprentice’ is simply too much – and i think martha just got slaughtered like a sacrificial lamb – but if you have been watching (it’s on tonight) – the tasks have been interesting – and honestly i just enjoy martha (i dig her daughter too) – i especially adore how martha writes goodbye letters to the person who leaves at the end of week – additionally the show theme song of eurythmics sweet dreams was just the icing on the cake – i will be sad to see this go…and trump can go screw himself – next season he will be doing his show from the west coast – a lame attempt to reinvigorate his show…oh my martha – you carry on girl!








i am also mildly peeved about ABC cancelling alias – but i think it’s five year run was enough – i think the 2nd & 3rd seasons best – especially any episodes with lena olin – she is so wickedly cool – i hope they bring her back for the big series finale – and damn jennifer garner is a house waiting to drop – she must have like 10 babies in her ‘affleck infected’ belly – i guess they all must arrive oh so soon…will be very interesting to see where garner’s career goes after this…up or down?!?



but there is still good tv people – besides my favorite show nip/tuck (which is just crazy at the moment – kimber is being held hostage by the carver – oh my!) – i really adore grey’s anatomy – i swear this show is totally tops – and patrick dempsey is so my boyfriend – he just doesn’t know it yet…



anyways yeah it is the end of november and i had my most unique visitors this month ever – it’s a good steady climb and i am in for the long haul (everyday my friend ckeveryday! i so thank you for that bit of inspiration – it so helps) – i can’t believe how the time is flying – i will be back tomorrow to ring in december – rock on – much love to all as always – xxoo



PS cancellations are the reason why i stick with shows like days of our lives…40 years later and still on!
