ABC Bringing Back Cavemen!

ABC has canceled all our favorite shows. If a show is doing well, they just take it off the air and then put it on when nobody notices. The one show they got right was "Cavemen", which was no better or worse then "In the Motherhood" or Bob Saget's laugh fest "Surviving Suburbia". Take "Samantha Who?" for instance. ABC buries it so it can't even be found and then starts a rumor that the remaining episodes will be scheduled sometime in the future. One of TV's best comedies with an all-star cast is treated like it was old reruns of "My Mother the Car". Which brings us back to "Cavemen", which is an example of ABC's brilliant comedy minds. One of the worst shows ever is now looking a lot better when stacked up against some of the other so-called comedies on ABC and elsewhere (did anybody laugh at "Parks and Recreation" on NBC...I thought "Southland" was funnier.) So what about the unseen episodes of "Cavemen". ABC can save some money and show them after "Dancing with the Stars" because people will watch anything after "Dancing With The Stars".

  1. Ain't that the truth! We need to organize a (virtual) posse and storm ABC corporate headquarters with (virtual) torches and pitchforks. And thanks for the shout-out to one of my all-time favorite comedies, "My Mother the Car", with Jerry Van Dyke as "My".

  2. It is amazing that an award winning show like Samantha Who? is on "the bubble". It won a People's Choice award for Favorite New Series. A Golden Globe for best actress for Christina Applegate and an Emmy for best supporting actress went to Jean Smart! I agree 100% with Paul Solomon's assesment of the situation.

  5. They're not stupid enough to cancel Samantha Who? Just give it enough time to find its audience.
