CBS cancels Joan of Arcadia

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 6:52 pm

I just want to send a quick thanks to CBS for giving me absolutely no reasons to watch their pathetic network anymore: Joan of Arcadia has been cancelled. But thank god Yes, Dear is returning . . . whew, I was really worried about that one. (Yes, that’s sarcasm, people.)

Joan and Judging Amy, also cancelled, were among the lowest rated on the network in the “younger viewers” demographic that CBS wants to target. These people, of course, are the fickle, attention-span-of-a-gnat trend-hoppers who are also most likely to not be at home during Joan‘s Friday 8pm timeslot – but when a lot of families and older viewers are home. Whatever CBS puts in that Friday timeslot is likely to suffer the same fate – why not stick with something that already had a dedicated core audience?

The only thing I can say is thank God for Fox renewing Arrested Development and NBC for renewing The Office. Without these two, I’d only have two other reasons to watch TV: ABC’s Lost and WB’s Gilmore Girls. I would add NBC’s Scrubs, but the show’s been put on hiatus until NBC feels like putting it back on, you know, whenever.
