Eli Stone: another swimmer in the TV dead pool

I was surprised to see that all of a sudden my DVR was recording Eli Stone in the middle of June, and that with them not promo-ing the next episode, something wasn't right. Sure enough, Wikipedia says the show was cancelled, and they're just showing the last four unaired episodes. ABC: You suck.

This is yet another good show banished for non-homerun ratings despite being good. Add it to the pool with Wonderfalls, Sports Night, That 80's Show, Girls Club, My So Called Life, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Boston Legal, Boston Public... the list goes on. That I watch so little TV (other than Discovery Channel) isn't surprising when they keep killing stuff I'm in to.

Hmmmmmmmmm ... it is called commercial television ..... unfortunately. it seems there are too few people like us that actually will watch a well produced program on a regular basis or is it that TV has simply swamped the airwaves with the endlesss reality shows and other non-sense it calls entertainment catering to apparently the masses that want that crap .... and left the rest of us to go elsewhere?
