    I kinda figured it would be cancelled. At least hopefully we will get a little closure instead of them just pulling the plug like they have a lot of shows! CW has cancelled so many good shows over the past couple years!

    Though its highly unlikely, heres a theory as to why they are ending it earlier:

    The CW hasn't had an original scripted drama series that actually survived since they created the station. They cancelled Runaway.

    Well, with the cancellation of Veronica Mars and Gilmore Girls ending. Maybe they are showing back-to-back episodes as a way to try and get more interest in the show. The idea might be to give the fans more to get them hooked on the show faster. If the ratings stay in the 1.6 nielsen area during the back-to-back episodes, its possible that the CW could bring the show back in the fall. Though unlikely, its possible this could be there reasoning behind speeding the showing of episodes up.

    Just a thought.

    I thought Hidden Palms was originally for UPN? I could be wrong, just what I thought I heard. Anyway, there is absolutely no way that they would put Hidden Palms in the fall. The only way it could survive is in the summer.

    I would be pissed if they renewed HP and not Veronica Mars which has a lot more viewers.

    Last night ratings werent any better than last week.

    http://www.thefutoncritic.com/ratings.aspx

    1.0 / 0.5 (18-49) #14 - dead last for the night- Stick a fork in it,Hidden Palms is done after they air the last episode this summer - if not sooner. At least it should beat Wild Palms 5 episodes. If they axed Veronic Mars with 2.5 million viewers, no way 1.4 million for HP will get a full season order.

    well, did you actually ever expect it NOT to get cancelled? The CW sux, and this is what they do. But it still has smallville on, so I'm good.

    WHAT THE HELL DO THEY DO THIS FOR I LOVE SOME OF THEIR SHOWS, RUNAWAY WAS FUN AND IT WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT BUT I BELIEVE THE REASON THEY ARE GETTING CANCELLED IS BCUZ AFTER THE MISTERY IS SOLVED THERE IS NO NEED FOR ANOTHER SEASON, WHISTLER IS AN EXAMPLE IT WAS A GREAT SHOW (IN THE N) BUT AFTER THE MISTERY IS SOLVED ITS BETTER TO END THEN TO GET DRAGGED ON JUST LIKE RUNAWAY THINK ABOUT IT, AFTER THE ENDING THEY AINT GONNA BE RUNAWAY ANYMORE. AND IF YOU THINK DRAGGING A MISTERY SEASON AFTER SEASON IS FUN LOOK AT LOST HOW CAN PEOPLE BE LOST THAT LONG WITHOUT GETTING FOUND ITS JUST DUMB.

    CW have really shot themselves in the foot canceling so much stuff at once. The FBI makeover of Veronica Mars sounded really promising particularly. They must be praying that one of their pick-ups will do something. Personally, I think only Reaper has the potential to do that. Down to one show on CW now, Supernatural, and only because it occasionally reminds me of X-Files.

    Keep digging CW. That grave is really starting to take shape.

    This does suck, but anyone who didn't see it coming was in denial. The ratings are bad- that's the reality. I personally think it could have done better if it had been aired earlier in the season, after One Tree Hill, or something.



    As for all the shows the CW has canceled- well, they didn't cancel many last season so I can see why they would this year. But I only think Reaper and maybe gossip girl will make it next season. But I guess I'm ok- I still have OTH and Smallville.

    They could have made Veronica Mars: FBI into an X-Files type show. David Duchovny could be her supervisor playingAssistant Director Fox Mulder- he isnt doing much of significance these days. Though I never actually watched Veronica Mars I would give a show like that a try.
