White House drama The West Wing will end its seven-year run on US TV network NBC in May. The political saga has suffered a ratings slump since it was moved to Sunday nights. NBC entertainment president Kevin Reilly said the decision to cancel it was made before actor John Spencer died of a heart attack in December. He said: “There’s a point where you look at the ratings and you just say, ‘it’s time.'”
This is one of those times that I really hate the way TV works. If ratings slump, advertisers wont pay and the show is removed. It’s so damn capitalist that it replaces quality with dribble. In a few years they might as well just put pornography on all the networks.
I am very dissapointed to say the least.
I suppose all good things must come to an end and I frankly would miss Martin Sheen playing President Bartlet next season anyway.
But there’s no way I’m watching Commander in Chief.
Do you have something against the woman being president or what? Go a head and watch commander and chief, the stories are basically the same the only difference is that in the latter the president is a woman instead of a man. Big deal!.
hatem, it’s not about gender, it just dosnt feel the same. the story lines are pale in comparison
