Some ranting and raving on a very inconsequential matter -
So I think that I've been pretty honest and straightforward about my TV issues. Yes, I'm a bit of a TVaholic. Tonight one of the new shows we've been watching is already airing it's season finale. Last week (or maybe the week before) Prison Break had it's season finale. But beyond all that I just want to know if any of you are as fed up with the "big wigs" of the major TV networks, like I am? I feel like over the past year or so they've have started canceling shows left and right before even giving them a chance. I think one of my biggest pet peeves (after all my driving pet peeves) is a show that I've invested multiple hours of my time and energy watching - getting canceled and them not even having a chance to "wrap it up". It's like reading hundreds of pages of a book and then there not being any conclusion. I will be completely honest and admit that I have a very hard time every new year not trying to watch every new show. I can't help it. I'm very, very nosy. And I want to be in the know at all times. Now if I don't enjoy a show, I certainly won't continue to watch it but if a show is interesting with different twists and concepts than other shows on the air, I like to give them a chance. Unfortunately as of lately, I don't think that ABC, NBC, CBS, CW or FOX agree with my way of thinking. What is wrong with these people. They can't possibly be TV watchers themselves or they would realize what type of anguish they are putting us through. Wouldn'tcha think? If you don't agree, please be kind when you "put me in my place".
My list of woes is as follows and these do reach back to last year:
The CW canceled both Veronica Mars and The Gilmore Girls and now OTH is in danger of being canceled.
NBC has canceled Daybreak, Journeyman, Las Vegas, Bionic Woman and Friday Night Lights is in danger of being canceled.
FOX canceled K-Ville and both Prison Break and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles are possibly going to be cancelled.
ABC and CBS have been the kindest so far and are only threatening to cancel a show a piece that I watch. Women's Murder Club (which is a GREAT show) and The Unit (which is also a GREAT show), respectively.
I realize this is very non-significant in the scheme of things but it so annoys me that I decided to vent a little on this subject. Thanks for reading.

And I bet ya'all didn't think I knew any Nirvana songs!

The Teen Spirit Title is cool. :-) I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to have those shows canceled. The book analogy seems very appropriate. Is it unfathomable that I have never watched any of the shows you mentioned?

They are making room for Knight Rider and Indiana Jones.
Some great shows, it's too bad!

You obviously know my take on this horrific situation. Let me solve your problems. TV on TV is SO two years ago. TV on DVD is the ONLY way to go. I have enough shows to keep you busy at least a year or two.
