    Last week's episode was preempted by U.S. Open coverage but the change wasn't reflected in the schedule in time, so my TiVo, at least, thought it was recorded so wasn't going to record tomorrow nights episode.

    Yeah, :mad: we're 3 episodes behind Canada.

    This is a Great Series and NBC had to first ruin it and then cancel it.

    By with-holding the episodes for all sorts of other shows and of course throwing it on Saturday.... Thank goodness for TiVo.

    They actually did air the right episode, though.. I have usually been manually recording (i.e. turning it into a single-checkmark), to make sure it records..

    It's still entertaining, IMHO. So I guess they're going to just leave the "cheat on her husband" subplot un-finished?

    You're lucky they even bothered to keep it on the air, it was one of the worst rated shows on network television.

    I'm pretty sure they didn't move it to Saturday until they'd already made the decision to cancel it.

    You rarely see ratings so low from a mainstream network. Horrible, horrible show. Acting, writing, abysmal. Conceptually they basically recreated our legal and law enforcement systems as a bizarre fantasy world, without even any inherent, internal logic. Nobody with any intelligence, taste or self-respect watched this show.

    It is one of only three or four series this last season we consistently followed. Picked up the Canadian episodes so we could see it sooner.

    We need a network called the BAD network, for shows way beyond routine wretchedness, for people like me.

    Yea, me too... I liked it so much, I picked-up the Canadian episodes too.

    What a horrible show (tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek).

    I DID miss it on my TIVO. Saw this too late since we were on a long weekend for our anniversary. I recorded an hour of (mostly) golf instead.

    Luckily this show is one of the ones with full episodes available on NBC.com: :)

    Does anyone know when the rest of the Episodes will be shown, and how many are left?

    My Canadian source has dried-up...

    Both IMDB (not always accurate) and Garn's Guides have 22 total episodes. Probably correct as a full season these days is 21-24 episodes. So three more episodes to go in the U.S.

    I am not so sure of these dates, considering the Olympics start on NBC on July 12.

    Final episode tonight. Haven't watched it yet. We will miss it, though haven't figured out why. I wasn't being facetious: this is just a terrible series in all elements. I guess, for those dozens of us who make up the total audience, we see the whole as somehow greater than the sum of its parts. It does somehow move along (despite the endless banal dialog badly delivered), maybe its saving grace.
