Why Do They Do This To Us...

I have to share my point of view right now about how disappointed I am with NBC for canceling one of the only mildly entertaining comedies on television right now, Samantha Who?. Not that I have much time to watch television lately anyway, but finding out that this cute little show with a cute little actress, Christina Applegate, and an even cuter leading man, Barry Watson, will not be gracing us with a third season put a frown on my face and made me think of all the other cute little shows that didn't last but should have including the series Pushing Daisies and even a little known series called Love Monkey that showed a whole 8 episodes in the later winter of '06. But it's my belief that CBS had too high of hopes putting a new series on against the Winter Olympics! I mean, I know not everyone has a tiny little crush on Tom Cavanaugh like I do(also known as the star from the series Ed) but the music of Teddy Geiger should have made it last more than 8 episodes.
Wouldn't it be great to turn the channel from the many reality television shows that are pointless and rediculous and just get back to watching a great sitcom again? Maybe in the future they can cancel some of the terrible shows that are on television now that make me wonder who in the world could be watching this crap! Don't get me wrong, I love reality tv (I'm a shameless watcher of America's Next Top Model, American Idol and The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but sometimes enough is enough.)

I LOVE pushing daisies! When Taylor said it was canceled I went out of my mind!

I'm sad about Samantha Who too but I'm even more upset by Chuck. Supposedly it has 13 more episodes but I think that's it after that!
