I hope they go to another network. I hate cliff-hangers, I can't wait to find out what was up with that tampon.

They had better get the writing back on track. This season had some real bad Earl shows. Gross out comedy is only OK to a point. Maybe Randy could actually kill somebody.

I think the illegal stripper is hot. The shows not bad either.

It's really not that good of a show.

During a conference call with reporters Tuesday, Ben Silverman, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios, said the network opted to cancel "Earl" and "Medium" because neither the fans nor the advertisers had waged a campaign to save them the way viewers and the Subway restaurant chain did for " Chuck."

Seriously? That's how NBC is making decisions? How do they explain the cesspool that was "Kath and Kim" or why we need two hours of crying overweight people every week? And an hour of Jay Lame-o in prime time every weeknight? How far you have fallen, Peacock. "Seinfeld" or "Cheers" would never have a chance today.

If NBC only renews at-risk shows when there's a massive fan response, they should have made the announcement about Earl early enough so that there can BE a fan response. They didn't give the fans a chance. I didn't watch the show (I prefer to get the DVDs), but shows where someone tries to do the right thing because it's the right thing need to be kept. We don't need more cut throat reality garbage out there.
