    There was somebody on twp who claimed to work on the show who said that even if it came back a bunch of the cast would be gone (most notably GOB). It really may just be time to say goodbye.

    How can an Emmy-winning show bite it like this? I believe this is the funniest show on television...how they get all THAT in a 30-minute window always amazes me....all the Happy Days alum showing up...Maeby and Shirley...Jeez...It's TV gold!
    And didn't TV Guide or Entertainment Weekly just post it as #1 on their list of best TV shows on the air?

    'Burn in hell Fox' is right. What would be good is for CBS (the EYE network) to pick it up. They run stuff forever.

    It's like Fox didn't vet the episode...then aired it...then went "um, no" and shut 'em down. The show is probably worth more as a DVD set now.

    Unbelievable. Strike that...no it's not. Fox has a successful business model, using their broadcasting as a way to drum up interest in their other ventures...wonder if it will alienate viewers?

    A pop quiz...do you remember...
    Reunion? Fastlane? Significant Others? Wonderfalls? Keen Eddie? The American Embassy? Millenium? Lone Gunmen? The Tick? Pasadena? Freakylinks? Firefly? Family Guy? Skin? Dark Angel? Tru Calling? Futurama? Forever Eden? Playing It Straight? Girls' Club? Wanda at Large? Oliver Beene? North Shore? Jonny Zero? Point Pleasant?

    Don't forget Andy Richter Controls the Universe. We can't forget Andy, especially after learning all about his siblings and all last week.

    There was also his short lived show, Quintuplets. Which him being quintuplets on AD might have been a reference too or I could just be seeing things. :D

    I am sure Fox has a great reason for this...

    Everyone seems to have taken this as gospel but where and when did they say this? I know since Sports Night its not generally their policy to take sloppy seconds, but I know Carolyn Strauss and Chris Albrecht are too smart to not even consider such a great show.

    the grand poohbah at fox wanted a two hour special about the ice rink freezing over, while dave flippin' coulier shows us clips about dogs walking on their front legs and big breasted women smashing beer cans.
