Again TV has cancelled the best shows and leave the stupid ones; Terriers cancelled? Monk ? Caprica ? And we are left with dumb down reality shows, game shows more CSI than are channels? Please network execs if a 2million viewer show is cancelled who in the public are making the "successful" viewer numbers? Idiots ? real people The Nielson ratings which is so outdated since the 70's ? I was a Nielson rating person and I never had the chance to watch what I was supposed to watch - so my one vote was never made. Who else on the Nielson ratings has done the same thing. ?? You cancel the best shows and keep the worst - are 4th graders making your choices?
Monk ended and Caprica was rightfully cancelled. I like Terriers and hoped that it would get a second season. Reality shows and game shows are on the decline for the major networks so that logic is a bit dated.
I don't really love the Nielsen system but it's only part of the equation and all shows have to deal with it. There's no point to keeping around a tv show that people love if it loses money.
