Life on Mars Officially Canceled? It seems so.

Is ABC turning into the new NBC? You know NBC, the joke of the networks. Most good shows are canceled, or deteriorate in quality while the execs sit by and watch and wonder what's happening while they go and schedule stupid reality shows (remember that dance thing show a couple months back? I barely do.)

Well, ABC, after canceling Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money (while keeping Private Practice, which is a joke) has canceled Life on Mars.

I never watched Life on Mars, but my understanding is that it was a really decent show with a good following. Many people considered it quality. And it's gone.

So what stupid reality show is ABC going to put in its place?

And what about Castle, the new show about a writer teaming up with a detective? Doesn't that just look awful?

Someone should really create a network with quality cast-off shows. It'll work, really.

i agree totally, canceling those 2 shows was a terrible idea. I liked both of them, esp. pushing daisies. i hope some other smaller network picks it up in the future.

This post is about the ABC version, not the BBC version. Ugh.

I feel your pain. It is so common for the networks to canel shows that are actually enjoyable to replace them with stupid reality television for stupid people. The networks have found a much larger audience in viewers who watch tv for 8 hours a day. That's why they choose to put that kind of crap on.
