No Place In Time For You.

The desertification of the vast wasteland that is American television continues... Now it looks like The 4400 isn't going to be back. I know I've been a bit guilty of damning that show with faint praise in the past, but I was still watching it, and by the end of last season, I was starting to get really interested again and curious about where the story arc was going. I guess now I'll never know.

With that off the schedule, the only show on USA I'm still watching is Psych. And that's my light-weight, watch-when-my-brain-is-tired-and-I-want-a-laugh show, which isn't exactly something that's all that hard to come by.

Also getting the axe from USA is The Dead Zone, which I haven't been watching, but which I know at least one of my six loyal readers liked. My sympathies.

    Alas. Although, I love The Dead Zone. I found myself uninterested this season with the loss of major characters and the elimination of the armageddon story arc. So I think it had jumped the shark. But ahhhhh it could have made a come back.

    However,Jericho is coming back due to fan support.

  2. I never did watch Jericho, but it's one I am planning on checking out on DVD some time. Ditto for The Dead Zone, actually.

  6. I could never really get into either The 4400 or The Dead Zone, but the sudden cancellation of both strikes me as a little odd, since I thought both shows still did reasonably well in their respective ratings. This leaves some big plot points open and unanswered, from what I gather.

  7. I had the impression they got reasonably good ratings, too. They may be victims of the writers' strike, I dunno. Then again, it's, erm, not unheard of for a cable station to suddenly cancel a highly-rated show. :P

    And The 4400 at least, does have a lot of dangling threads.
