I think that's it, sadly

I never watched Joan Of Arcadia other than small portions of it, but from what I hear it was a good show for teenagers/kids. I remember one episode dealing w/ her friend's Judaism that was quite good. I think it was her friend whose Mother was an alcoholic, I'm not sure.

I like Amber Tamblyn, I probably shouldn't admit this but I remember her from General Hospital.

I think Amber's much cuter than Jennifer. I'd much rather watch her.

Boobs and ghosts, huh? Let's hope the ghosts don't have boobs. That'd be scary.

Awards mean nothing, ultimately. If audiences don't watch the award-winning show, then it will get cancelled. It has happened more than once.

These shows probably had mediocre ratings, but since CBS skews "older," they killed them just so they could try to appeal to younger people. It's business, after all.

Last I heard the show was doing well ratings-wise. That's my point. I'll admit I don't know the exact ratings, but as I understood things, it was doing well. Who knows though.

Maybe things have changed, but I always thought CBS programming was targeted at an older segment (compared to NBC or Fox)

i think CBS is trying to change. they're doing well right now, especially with the CSI franchise, so i wonder if they're not trying to move in for the kill and reinvent themselves as younger and hipper. heck, i'm still mad about the cancellation of "my so-called life." but, actually, that was more Claire Danes' fault.

the network i work for is trying to do that, and it kind of pisses me off -- they've so gotten away from what made them unique.

but it's all about competition. and this is why we've seen the decline of CNN and the ascent of Fox -- competition is bad for news, and it's bad for quality television.

watch more PBS. listen to more NPR.

Doesn't it stand for Centenarian Broadcasting System?

I agree with you Irvine —*we need to watch more PBS — I love PBS. NPR rocks too.

And yes, "My So-Called Life," was a great show.

Can you believe Pamela Anderson has a show devoted to, and named for, her breasts?
