    It's a remake apocalypse! So many series with second hand names getting culled all of a sudden. Makes me glad that the Babylon 5 reimagining hasn't been put into production yet.

    I liked Magnum. Were the ratings bad? What about the S.W.A.T. reboot?

    Upset at Magnum. I liked Hawaii 50 and that bit of continuity attracted me, but I ended up preferring it.

    Maybe NCIS Hawaii will fill the gap.

    SWAT I believe has been renewed.
    Shame about Magnum though.

    I hear the CW canceled Charmed, Dynasty, 4400 and Roswell, New Mexico so they could make room for their new shows Dark Shadows, Falcon Crest, Alcatraz and V.

    I kind of wonder with all these reboot cancellations, if we're starting to see the nostalgia trend peak. Though one of my favourite shows this year has been the new Wonder Years. I've been fairly impressed with this one, and there's even an unobtrusive callback to the original that feels like it makes sense.

    Ratings were actually pretty decent, an average of seven million IIRC. It's apparently the show with the highest ratings to be cancelled on any network this year.

    CBS found success remaking one Tom Selleck series, maybe they'll remake Blue Bloods while Blue Bloods is still on the air.

    CW shows all have awful ratings under the traditional method, so they can't be making that much off commercials. I just assumed they did well via alternative methods. Is every show filmed in Vancouver?

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    The CW broadcasts to less houses, so it costs less to broadcast their media, and they need less ad revenue to get by, and their audience is so specific, that if you're trying to sell something rad, spending less money on the CW to get the smaller audience who want your product is better than spending more money at CBS to waste the time of 15 million old foggies who just don't get your rad product.

    I tried googling "v" and got 4,250,000,000 results.

    V for vendetta, V for victory or something else?
