    That is what Fox does, it always moves shows and time slots etc, and eventually shows lost viewing figures.

    I completely agree! I was so upset when the cancelled it. I have a friend who barely watches TV and this was one show that she was REALLY into and man were we upset when a show that popular is cancelled . Seriously what went wrong?

    I think it is wrong that Fox have the right to just cancell stuff.

    Is all they care about is the number of viewers not the fans.

    Yeah, it's all about making a profit with them. Tru Calling would have been good if it wasn't up against Friends and Survivor, that was a bad call on fox's part.

    Like 13 or summin then that way, the network wouldn't have been so worried about raitings.

    Yeah, guess there's nothing we can do about it now. The cast has moved on. I'm glad Eliza's getting a new series, can't believe it's with fox, but I hope it works out, I'll definitely be watching. I still miss Tru Calling though.

    Well the CW isnt that concerned I guess, since Supernatural is always facing off against some top notch shows, not to mention One Tree Hill never gets as many viewers as the OC, although I like both.

    Ya, like people said, it's because of ratings stolen by survivor & friends. Thursday's always been a risky FOX night (Just imagine a hugely popular show like The OC, getting axed from the Thurs. lineup due to bad ratings. That says it all!). And I do remember Wonderfalls, but I consider it the weaker of the shows that I mentioned Fox cancelled, and plus .. Friday night airing! How deathly is that. It's like they wanted the show to go down.

    Yep, that's FOX, cancel the good shows, and keep the ones that go crappy (*cough* family guy as of late) Besides, when you've got a sure thing like Idol, why would fox ever care for new dramas?

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that the first season was not that well-liked by audiences. However, the second season was when the show really started to gather a fanbase, but unfortunately it was not given a fair chance. It's too bad really, since it was a great show.

    I think a lot of people got bored with the seemingly same-ness of all the episdoes. They follow the same formula every time.

    They were trying to change it up a bit, especially with Jensen, hell a lot of things were going to change but the show was never given a chance. In the first season it became repetitive, but they again tried to change it up. Like when 5 bodies needed her help and when also in 'The Longest Day' where the day kept repeating. That ep actually bores me though, kind of tired me out.

    I think I read somewhere that they took Tru Calling off just to put in Point Pleasant (a show that I do like) but it didn't last as long as TC did, it had 18 eps with the last 5 unaired! Big Mistake, don't you think? And I missed Tru Calling even more when I found out from one of the writers' (or producers' I don't remember) journals online about all thestorylines they were gonna put in in the future. These storylines would definitely boost up the ratings! And I do agree that FOX SUCKSSS!!!!!!! The only show I like on there is Bones.

    I just started watching the series last week on Sci Fi (though I've know about it before) but now I don't know if I wanna get "into" the show deeply since Fox cancelled the series too early (I also hate Fox for cancelling The O.C. & Point Pleasant)
