I’m the Wrong Demographic

I’m mourning the cancellation of two of my favorite shows from this TV season.

forever  battle creek










I know—the Black Rhinos are nearly extinct and the human race as a species seems to be eating its young, but if I think about that stuff I’ll never get out of bed.  So I focus on something inconsequential.  Like how My Shows always get cancelled.  I have a history of being the wrong demographic.


Alphas (2011-2012)


Dollhouse (2009-2010)

Men of a Certain Age (2009-2011)


United States of Tara (2009-2011)


Moonlight (2007-2008)


Pushing Daisies (2007-2009)

Joan of Arcadia (2003-2005)


Carnivále (2003-2005)


Firefly (2002-2003)


Millennium (1996-1999)


Beauty and the Beast (1987-1990)


Well, you know… (1966-1969)

I hate when interesting, well-acted, well-scripted shows go belly-up.  I hate when fake dating, fake celebrities and humiliation get all the air time.  Because that audience buys more stuff.  Economics sucks.

Geeks can sometimes make a difference.  Star Trek resurrected nicely.  And Firefly got a feature movie.  But mostly we have to grab these sweet berries before the corporate crows pluck them for good.  Yes, I whine and howl, but I also sorta like holding this end of the spectrum.  It’s my lot in life to be weird.  Shiny.

    Pushing Daisies is one of my favorite TV shows to date! It’s such a shame it had such a short run time–especially since the first season was so short already as a result of Writers’ Strike.

    Both Forever and Battle Creek are being cancelled? I love them both!

    Star Trek is the only one of your lineup I’ve ever seen. I did love it, but it seems I didn’t do my part to preserve the other shows for you. Sorry.

    Pegoleg is one better than me… I didn’t even watch Star Trek. Well, maybe I tried but I just didn’t dig it. Maybe, just maybe I am the weird one. Regardless who is weird, we do pretty well together! And… weird is GOOD! 🙂

      Weird, no matter what flavor, is always good in my mind, Lori. I’d never try to convert anyone to The Dark Side, just drop little bread crumbs in case anyone’s hungry.
