West Wing gets canned

I can fortunately count on two fingers the number of shows I watch religiously, and the show with the longest tenure in our household is The West Wing.

I'm disappointed yet not surprised to learn that it's been cancelled. I think the show was really killed nearly 3 years ago when Aaron Sorkin left the show, but last year the writing improved which gave me hope that NBC might be trying to keep it alive. Of course declining ratings driven by NBC's moving the show from Wednesday to Sunday nights was the deathblow, but for the reasons behind NBC's moves, Russell Shaw has authored a great explanation on why the show was really cancelled.

I can thank Staci for the other show we now watch... Lost.
