Reading the list, I realize that, aside from the NFL, I don't watch CBS. I know it's the most watched network or something, but I guess I've missed out.

My mom's going to be bummed that Joan of Arcadia is gone. We always joke that the shows she watch get cancelled first, and it looks like it's happened again.

It's too bad about Joan of Arcadia. I'd only seen a few episodes, but it was the only show my dad watched regularily, and I know he'll miss it.

As for everything else...eh. Except for the return of Amy Acker to Television~!

Too bad her show doesn't look any good.

Damn! My thread beaten by 9 minutes. That's what I get for trying to be all fancey.

I can't believe Yes, Dear is back again, after barely making it to THIS season. Listen Up's cancellation was a bit of a surprise, if only because that seems to be the type of comedy CBS likes.

JLH and Carla Gugino on Fridays? I wonder how CBS will market that block....

I'm surprised that CBS continues to let Numbers just kind of languish on Friday nights, one of the wastelands for show scheduling. It got so much hype going in, and then it was just dumped onto Friday.

You can call Joan's cancellation the REVENGE OF WONDERFALLS. Now there are zero shows on Friday night where young, attractive, slightly cynical girls are directed around by a higher power.

Yes, Dear's renewal upsets me. It's not that I dislike the show, but quite the opposite - it's absolute SHIT, but I can't tear myself away from the syndicated episodes (there's two on my local Fox O-and-O every. damn. night.) and now there will be more crack to feed the quite unwanted addiction. I don't just want a cancellation, I want someone to find and burn every copy of every tape of every episode, now.

Another show that I like a lot, but we just tape it and watch it at a later date. In fact, I haven't watched the last four episodes yet.

She's finally found the vehicle that matches her acting.

I'm sorry. Maybe I should write that in "Amy Acker."

    She's finally? Um? Found her? Like, vehicle? That, um? Matches her? Um? You know? Uhhh? Uh... acting?

The worst Texas accent in history is optional. But the I-am-cute-if-I-uptalk-and-seem-afraid-of-a-single-declarative-sentence-at-all is not. Neither is robotically pan-and-scanning the dramatic circumstance and only reacting when a camera(?) is (uh?) focused on (uh?) you (uhhh?).

I can't believe they gave Jenna Elfman a show. One of the most annoying, least funny, and totally insane.

I'm gonna have to check out "How I Met Your Mother" because Doogie was hilarious in Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle.

Surely if you watched what they did to her character towards the end of Angel, you'd amend those statements. Not to say that her acting was any better (or worse), but your comments cannot apply.

I have the last season on DVD, And your charge is fair. But I don't think substuting "uptalking" for "sounding like the Terminator" comes close to acting. It's like standing outside Acting's C4-wired ranch and whining at the gate. Points for pluckiness. No points for actual content. Neither would get close without a head exploding.

"Um? I would, um, like to get in?"
"ALLOW ME ENTRANCE OR I WILL SPILL BLOOD. LOOK AT THIS BLOOD SPILLER WHO HAS BLOOD IN HIM THAT CAN BE SPILLED. I WILL SPILL HIS BLOOD. WHAT IS THIS 'PING-PONG' OF WHICH YOU SPEAK? WHAT IS THIS 'LOVE'? CUT TO COMMERCIAL."

But how much of what you are charging has to do with her acting and how much has to do with the dialogue she was given? Fred was supposed to up-talk. Ilyaria was supposed to SPILL BLOOD. I don't think she necessarily had much room to work with there. At least we can see that she can handle poorly delivering two different types of characters. Maybe she could handle a third?


    WHAT IS THIS 'PING-PONG' OF WHICH YOU SPEAK?


Its funny because its true...

(For the record, I didn't find Acker's acting all that offensive, but I don't consider myself much of a judge of that. I do agree with you regarding the Texas accent, though.)

I think you all are missing the big Angel connection that Christian Kane looks to be coming back on TV! Hell, I'm a guy and even I'm more excited to hopefully see him back weekly than I am for Amy Acker!

I too will mourn the Loss of Joan....

Guys, you're missing the big picture here.....Amy Acker is hot.

Plus, any show co-written by Mamet and Shawn Ryan (and with Haysbert, King and Patrick in the cast) is looking very, very promising.
