<Sigh> It's getting so aggravating to witness great television shows being axed while more and more of these so-called 'reality' shows flood the airwaves. I just found out that yet another show I liked was canceled after one season. "A Gifted Man," which followed the life of a world-renowned neurosurgeon, who was frequently visited by the presence of his dead ex-wife. The show had humor, life lessons, and entertainment value. I can't say the same for these reality shows that serve to dumb-down our society.
Unfortunately, someone out there must be watching them, or they wouldn't keep making them. That's my concern and fear. Every season, my husband and I hesitate to get drawn into new shows that seem interesting, because they wind up canceled soon after. It's a disappointing circle for us...do we take the chance it might be great and get renewed? Or invest our time in it and later see it thrown into the fire again?
