What were they thinking????!!!!
8 June 2009 | by (Charlotte, NC, United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show. What were they thinking canceling it? I swear I don't understand how they decide which shows to keep! Do they throw darts at a dartboard?! Seriously, the demographics of the people who watch this have to be housewives who do most of the shopping in their households. Why would a studio not want to appeal to that demographic? Not to mention, the show had a great cast and the stories were hilarious. It's been a sad few months for me, not being able to see what happens next. I would say my only negative comment about the entire show was that they replaced Kenny with an actor that was too good-looking for the part! Debra Messing is amazing. Judy Davis is a fantastic actress. I loved the dynamic that Danielle Nicolet brought to the show, such great energy! The relationship between Rodney and Felix was really well-played out and didn't make me uncomfortable as a heterosexual female either!
