kk, i'm a geek, but i LOVED "parker lewis can't lose" on fox in the early 90's.

the reason i think it was cancelled too soon is, i had written an episode, and it was sitting on the producer's desk the day the show was cancelled.  true story.  (a friend of mine from my musician days had moved to LA and was appearing reguarly on "dance machine," and "married with children" would tape in another part of the same studio, so my friend became friends with david faustino and billy jayne, and the 3 of them used to go out on the town together.)  i sent my friend my script, he loved it, gave it to billy jayne, he loved it and passed it on to the producer.  then the show got cancelled and so ended my best shot at being an actual hollywood writer.   :-[

Not that I wanna promote piracy (at least where I live it's legal to download TV Shows as far as they show the source (TV Channel or whatever)) but the first 3 episodes of Jericho leaked at the same time (about 15 hours ago) to torrent websites, and apparently the show is gonna continue thanks to fans.

CBS doesn't let every country watch them, and these are leaked versions so they will only come out in February 12th (the first one).

What happened is that all the fans sent in packets of nuts to the chief of CBS and so she wrote a statement saying that she would allow a short second season of 7 episodes, airing from the 7th of february i think. But she did also state that this was it and it was now down to the ratings. If Jericho gets the ratings then it will continue. If it doesn't then it's going the way of the cancel!

Too bad, at least in other countries it's a really popular show but I dunno about the USA.

yeah i know, those WERE great, and so was cow & chicken.  (that red dude with the big butt used to crack my sh** up.)

from what i understand (and a friend of a friend of mine works for Nick)...they sign these animator folks to a 3-year deal, work them absolutely to death making up to 5 years' worth of episodes, then just don't renew the contract at the end.  unless it's some spiralling phenomenal cash cow like spongebob...

Yea, but I grieve for the shows loss. Especially the overused "SHIIIING" noise, which is used around nine thousand times an episode.
