    This is not good news but it seems as if WTTC has been pulled by CBS after episode 5. If you go to http://www.tvguide.com/Listings/default.aspx and search for Monday March 10th, you'll see that CBS has this line up:

    8:00 How I Met Your Mother (r)

    8:30 Old Christine

    9:00 Two & A Half Men

    9:30 Old Christine

    I guess this means that we'll never see episode 6. Damn.

    Not neccessarily.. I have seen things like this happen almost weekly on NBC's Thursday schedule.

    They will play a double episode of one show and none of the other and then switch it around the following week. It gives them a chance to see if it's the show or the time slot that is either doing well or poorly.

    This show still may not be renewed, but I'm sure we'll see the sixth (if it's been filmed, and I think it has) and if CBS follows my implicit instructions about having a 3-hour, 6-show comedy block on Monday nights. I have warned them that I will stop watching 2.5Men unless they do as I tell them.

    Well, the week after the schedule for Monday 10th goes:

    8:00 - The Big Bang Theory
    8:30 - How I Met Your Mother
    9:00 - Two & A Half Men
    9:30 - Old Christine

    Not good...

    Hmm, not good at all. I was looking forward to seeing what they would do with the Heather character. And she wasn't even in last night's episode!! Now, maybe she (and the show) aint coming back at all!

    It is extremley unlikley that CBS will return the show for just a "one off" episode. Last night's ep only gained 5.5 million viewers again.

    That's kind of sad!... Oh well there will be other shows! But I kind of liked this show and I think it was just starting to build it's characters and story line, I think it could have been really good!

    Oh well, what can you do?

    Ahhh! But 'it' didn't say 'series' Finale (he said, grasping at the last straw in the stack).

    Yeah right. For some reason CSI: Miami is apparently doing really well (American Idolitis? Survivorrhea? Las Vegasosis?) That horrible show is not going anywhere.

    I've never seen CSI: Miami, but I like CSI and CSI: NY. If a show does well in a slot it won't move: why fix something if it isn't broken?
