The Votes Are All In...

So I bet you thought this post was going to be about American Idol? Well you are wrong.

All the major television networks have announced their fall 2008-2009 lineup and I must say that all in all, I am sad as I lost 3 shows I like (Las Vegas, Back to You, & Canterbury's Law) but overall, it could have been much worse. I think next year will be much worse for me with some big name shows (Boston Legal & ER) having 2008-2009 as their final season.

What really pisses me off is that they leave these shows with cliffhangers and then do just that, leave us hanging. I wish that they would come back and air at least one episode (maybe two) and wrap crap up for us. I mean, is it really that hard before they strike the sets? Maybe a new rule, that they must film at least one episode for the next season right after they film the season ender?

Anyway, enough of my bitching and pity-party I got going here. Life will go on and there will be other shows (unless they are all that crappy reality TV).

Speaking of reality tv, one show that I am glad to see canceled is Kid Nation. It was not picked up for a second season and I am really not surprised in any way, shape, or form of that. Now if it was canceled due to lack of rating or just cus they could not find a legal place to shoot the show now that New Mexico closed the legal loop holes in our labor laws? That is a question we will probably never know the answers to.

Anyway, below the cut is a list of shows that are coming back, shows that got the ax, and new shows for the 2008-2009 season. See which of your favorite shows made it and which ones did not. Then come bitch commiserate with me in the comments where I will be waitting.
