well, it is official. What had started as a nasty rumour has become reality. my favourite TV show, ALIAS, is coming to a close.Apparently, viewership is declining since ALIAS was moved this season to Thursday nights opposite CBS giant Survivor.
Here's what I don't understand: "Alias is not going to wind down as it comes to an end, it's going to rev up, and we're going to make it the event it deserves to be," Stephen McPherson, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. If this is true, then why haven't they pulled out all the stops now, BEFORE the show went in the toilet and disappointed millions of faithful fans? Why didn't they wait until Jennifer Garner had her stupid baby with dumbass Jen-addict Ben Affleck? She's due soon – they could have worked from April to June or July when she wouldn't have been able to do much ass-kicking, then waited until January to put the show on – like they did last year – and then had Jennifer back in ass-kicking shape to finish out the season's shows by February and start shooting the final episodes! I think the folks over at ABC are IDIOTS for dropping the ball on scheduling the show properly. It just isn't as interesting this season without my love, Agent Michael Vaughn (the delicious Michael Vartan) and without Sydney's ass-kicking and awesome costume changes! The show was largely built on her physical appeal: guys wanted to be with her, girls wanted to be her. Despite what Dave may say (holla!), pregnant women are NOT sexy – at least not enough to keep viewers hanging around, in this case!
I must admit, when I found out this terrible news last night, I was so upset that I said, "I hope this baby ruins her career! It's ruined my life!" While now, in the light of day, things don't quite look so terribly melancholy, I am still highly upset over my favourite show being cancelled. I was loyal. I have been sticking it out, through the death of AMV, just in case things turn around. Now, I'm very sad that my show is going to TV heaven. There will never be another ALIAS.
