    I'll be honest, never watched it and never planned to, however instead of being sarcastic let's just say that CBS with their mega hits and superior ratings has a lower threshold for holding onto poor performers than other networks. There's just too much at stake for CBS in losing ratings as they head into sweeps. The decision was probably for the best!

    It was doomed from the start because it was a goofy idea. Things like this may work in England - but in America? No way. Its just too silly. (see 1990 - COP ROCK)

    CBS usually dumps unaired episodes onto the CBS Innertube website.
