Quality television where are thee?

First the Family Guy and now word that Arrested Development may get cancelled. The cancellation would occur despite five Emmys, including one for TV's best comedy. The show recently had its order shortened from 22 to 18 episodes and is very much in danger of the axe.

Admittedly, the ratings have barely moved from their dismal year-ago numbers. Arrested Development ranks 118th this season to date in the U.S., behind such shows as The Swan 2 (they made a sequel?) and America's Funniest Home Videos (does Bob Saget still host?).

If it does go off the air, I will purchase the 2nd season on DVD and enjoy it as much as the first. However, here is hoping the desperate HBO picks it up and runs it with Curb Your Enthusiasm.

This is very interesting site...
