Does any one other than me think Television executives are stark raving mad?

I am actually at a place now with television programming that I long for the days where you had the traditional “seasons” (fall through late spring) and then had to be subjected to mini-series, celebrities competing with each other in skimpy bathing suites, and the occasional screening of “Old Yeller” during the summer off season. Now we are at a point where networks will put anything and everything on air. I can only imagine the conversations that take place: “Hey Henry, how about a sitcom about a Love struck Gopher who dabbles as a Vampire hunter?” or “Wow look at this script Steve! A dysfunctional alien dad tries to bring up 10 down and out penguin’s who escaped from a cruel zoo keeper portrayed by a cartoon alligator”. I blame the reality show craze, and please don’t even get me started on that vein. Is anyone really watching “survivor” anymore? It should have been voted off the island a very, very long time ago.

So here is the current cancellation list of shows you may possibly care less about to shows that may cause you to write a hate filled letter. After all the networks pump up, push, market, and try to convince you when they originally air these shows that they are the greatest thing since Matlock.
