    I read to day that VH-1 will start airing the three aired episodes in the second week or April and continue weekly until the original 8 episodes have aired. It will take place Tuesdays at 9pm, which was the original time period.

    It appears that at least one star has sign up for another pilot, so my guess is even with success this show is a done deal. The good news is you won't have to wait for DVD to complete the series.

    Great news!
    Thanks for the info monkey!
    I thought this show was great so of course it got canceled. Like you said, at least we can see the rest of the episodes now.

    Yeah! Great news. I found several articles confirming the news, some with nice photos. Here's a link to an MSNBC article:
    ‘Love Monkey’ finds new life on VH1: Cable channel will air all eight hourlong episodes of the show

    Glad you appreciated the scoop. I feel bad for TC. I loved Ed, and this show had the same vibe, but unfortunately it didn't catch on.

    The ultimate gift would be a two hour episode to tie the entire thing together.

    Thanks for the info! I wouldn't have expected a temporary-pick-up by VH-1 but I'm glad the channel decided to

    I just found this out (Courtesy of Teddy Geiger e-mail list) and think it's great news!

    Just wondering... Is there any chance that if the ratings do well (Even in terms of a basic cable channel) that Love Monkey maybe picked up for more episodes to air on VH1 in the future? I mean, have you seen some of the CRAP that they show on VH1? Clearly they could use a good, non-reality show.

    It's starting April 11 with the first 3 episodes and then on April 18 with 1 new episode.

    Love Monkey is getting more and more media attention; TheFutonCritic & Zap2It have also added articles:

    Apparently, VH1 is airing the episodes in a different order, well actually, in the right order. On April 11; Pilot, Nice Package and The One Who Got Away will air. While Confidence will air on April 18. The Window will air on April 25 (so that one's also back in its original way)

    I was happy to hear this news and see it. Why couldn't they pick up the series for new episodes??

    Yeah, and VH1 only did a burn-off of the shows episodes, because CBS had already cancelled it.

    So, this show is just airing in Southamerica and it is FANTASTIC. Of course, I knew it'd be cancelled. Too good for TV standars (King of Queens, anyone?).

    But just in case, aren't there any news about more episodes? One at least?

    No news so far. And I think it's very unlikely we'll get it since I think Love Monkey is too expensive for VH1 to produce. That said, I've never seen a official cancellation of the show by VH1 (ofcourse CBS did officially cancel it).

    I really like this show, but I think that it's the kind of show that should last just one season, before it becomes boring. But it should have 20 episodes, at least.
    BRING IT BACK, or just DON'T CANCEL IT.

    They've finished showing it here, in Argentina (I think we probably get it through Sony at the same time, right?), and it's very sad, because it was a nice thing to watch, different from all those empty-headed sitcoms! It also reminded me of Dead Like Me, and Love Monkey also seemed too good to last... I wish they'd give it a few extra episodes, as they did with DLM. We want more series like these!!
