"RIP: Rerun In Perpetuity"

2006

My contribution to the endless “Year in Review” features is up at MSNBC.com, as I did a run-down of TV series ended or canceled in 2006. The formatting forced the omission of an introduction I’d written for it, so, I’ll drop it here:

The Academy Awards always makes time in its interminably long ceremony to pay tribute to anyone even slightly associated with the movie business who had died in the past year. So it seems appropriate to recognize not the people, but the 50+ TV series that ended this year, either by natural causes or at the hands of murderous network executives. (Will their reign of terror never end?) Unfortunately, every director to whom I proposed a video montage of cancelled shows had me thrown out of his-or-her office, home or booth at Denny’s. So, instead, we offer a succinct review of the year’s most notable cancellations.

    Yes, Dear was still on?!? Amazing…
    (and good riddance, though I never bothered to watch past the first season and I’m not sure why I watched it then…)
