I wish I could say that I didn't see this coming. I had a feeling ABC would cancel "Men in Trees," and sure enough, reported Monday that the network has done so.

re: Men In Trees
If someone bought a pet and treated it the way ABC has
treated Men In Trees, they would be jailed for a felony crime.
This is not a case of "whoops we killed the show". This is a
case of deliberate intent ( premeditation---murder in the first
degree ). Warner Brothers should file suit or find another net-
work or both.

ABC has a history of contempt regarding its viewers and their loyalty to its shows. Moving shows abruptly, sliding in old footage tarted up as a "new" rerun with more information (it doesn't fool us it is still the same old repeat or recut to appease our desire for another show) or by playing hide and seek with the time slot - this aggravates people that would otherwise stay with a show ... if they could find it. I call it attention deficit marketing.
I agree it is like "Men in Trees" seemed to be set up for an cancellation by terminal movement. We keep looking for it and can't find where they hide it. Then when we find it again, they stop it. Yikes. Makes me want to read.
