Jane By Design Deserves a Second Chance

It took me weeks, but I finally sat down and watched the season finale of Jane By Design. Or maybe I should say series finale? Rather abruptly — after just one season — ABC Family decided to cancel the show, which only garnered a 0.4 rating for its finale [source].

While Jane By Design may not have been on par with the supernova ratings for Pretty Little Liars or Switched at Birth, it was a highly popular show with a fan base that’s now angry to boot. And rightfully so. Cancelling Jane By Design was premature and I want it back! Continue reading

5 Reasons To Watch The L.A. Complex

The L.A. Complex may have set a record as the lowest-rated in-season broadcast drama debut ever, but that doesn’t mean The CW’s new Canadian export is a bad show. In fact, it’s a wonderful guilty pleasure.

Poll: Should Gossip Girl Be Cancelled?

Once upon a time Gossip Girl was the hottest show on TV. But the times have changed. Now Gossip Girl shares the dishonor of being the least watched show on the CW with Nikita.

GG nabbed a series low 0.6 adults 18-49 earlier this season. And it’s only nabbed 0.7 twice since then. The storylines are crappier than ever. Blair’s pregnant, she’s not pregnant. She loves Dan, she loves Chuck. Serena gets a job in PR. Serena gets a job in Hollywood. And Nate is…around.

Aren’t we all tired of this show? Don’t we wish it would just die already and retain some of its dignity? Or should we hope that it gets renewed (and those chances look slim) and become great once more? You decide! Continue reading

Gossip Girl In Danger of Cancellation

Gossip Girl has been on a downward spiral and now poor ratings are putting the show in cancellation territory.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the former “crown jewel” of the CW is barely outperforming the heinous Nikita, which happens to be the least watched-show on the network. That makes GG the second-least-watched show on the CW. Continue reading
