Changing The Game

As most people with a tv, radio, or internet access know, last season the CW decided to call timeout on The Game. I know legions of viewers who watched religiously. All of whom were pissed to the highest of pisstivity when they heard the news. Petitions were signed...hissy fits were thrown...and accusations were made. But when it was all said and done, the CW had the final word - after all money talks. Despite speculations of foul play from conspiracy theorists and die hard fans alike, the channel cited slipping ratings as "one of the reasons" they were letting The Game go. So, they tossed it aside and introduced a whole slew of new shows for their Fall lineup. One of which is called The Beautiful Life. Or shall I saw was. That's right folks, after only TWO measly episodes, the CW has cancelled the show. Produced by Ashton Kutcher and starring a few heavy hitters like Mischa Barton and Elle Macpherson, The Beautiful Life was supposed to be the next big thing. Guess things weren't so pretty after all. Frick! It just chaps my hide that they axed The Game and one of their new shows failed so miserably. The Beautiful Life only got 1 million viewers in its second week. That must have been the exact moment the CW decided The Beautiful Life was dying an ugly death. It is the first show of the season to be cancelled. And I can't help but think the CW really screwed the pooch on this one. Pooch Hall to be exact...along with Tia Mowry and the rest of the cast of The Game. Only time will tell how the CWs other shows do. I hear the vampire one is doing well. But I ask you, what vampire show wouldn't do well on the heels of the MANIA known as Twilight? It's a no brainer. Their also betting on 90210 and Melrose Place (which has also had low ratings thus far) to keep them afloat in the land of television relevancy. Wait? Did I really just say that? 90210 and Melrose Place. *scratches head* Hey CW...1994 called...they want their lineup back! *rolls eyes*
