Just about anything on TV that rubs their overly religious sensabilities the wrong way get painted with a big red bullseye. Pay their site a visit and you'll see they've also targetted the New Normal (for obvious reasons), The Soul Man because they feel it's blasphemous, Suits because Jesus is used as a curse word. They've even went after JC Penney for using Ellen Degeneres as their spokesperson. They're basically an uptight, ultra-conservative group of holier than thous who feel they know what's best for everyone else and apparently don't possess the ability to change a channel

one of my favorite shows Chuck came along when NBC was really struggling, and even though it was a great show, Chuck was always on the verge of being cancelled.

you have to be a little lucky if you're a low ratings show

NBC was struggling in many time slots, so there was always a few shows doing worse, and they couldn't turn over everything so Chuck always got another shot.

we Chuck fans also did some creative things like, all of us go to Subway (the main sponsor) one Monday at 8 PM (Chuck star, Zackary Levi got involved and brought a group of fans to a local Subway)

Chuck ended up getting 5 seasons. but we fans were sweating everyone of them

Chuck didn't get "cancelled" - it was "ended" (given a pre-announced final season), which is a dignified way for a show to go out.

Fringe got the same treatment.

I hadn't heard that. I loved that show. Great acting by Kelsey Grammer. What a shame something like that gets cancelled and that disgusting Honey Boo Boo has a huge following.

The ratings for Boss were abysmal. Not only was it Starz worst rated show, it was only getting about a quarter of the viewers other Starz shows were getting.

Now.....that doesnt explain why Honey Boo Boo is so highly rated, but it at least explains why Boss was cancelled.

If you look at some of the cable channels like TLC, Bio, Discovery Health, and others, they all show the same thing; wives who kill, kids who kill, deadly women, men, teens, ER disasters, disputed wills, and Honey Boo Boo. Kate and her 8 had a show, tiaras and toddlers, and other crap.... Either the viewing mentality is somewhere south of toothless, or no one cares about producing quality anymore...no wonder Honey Boo Boo and her family are laughing all the way to the bank...we're the ones making them rich.

I can agree with this to an extent but alot of those "wives who kill" shows are all on ID. Personally I think ID has done a fantastic job with airing documentary style shows with a bit of a twist. They basically took "Dateline/48Hrs" and segmented it. In my opinion it is just dramatizing what happened in real life. TLC on the other hand is trying to find every bottom feeder and make them a reality show. They have gotten so exploitive over the years.

Mine too! I hope that they at least somehow wrap it up instead of just leaving it with the cliff hanger...
