Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
Bummed about "Monday Mornings" (I guess I'll have to re-read the book).
REALLY bummed about "The New Normal."

I heard they may make a two hour movie of Southland to wrap things up -- I hope not in the movie theaters I don't think it would do very good -- fingers crossed they do I don't like when they leave us hanging like that.
On another note, I was just looking at the ratings for Boston's Finest I called that a sleeper hit and they started with high numbers but man they have fallen in the ratings the lowest rating they got was like a .60 I cannot believe that show was renewed but Southland which actually grew in the ratings did not...my husband keeps saying betcha it had to do with the ole mighty green....I tend to agree.

On the CW - I am surprised "The Carrie Diaries" is getting another season. I haven't seen it on the TV in a while (unless it's not on Mondays like it said it was) so I wasn't sure. I like it for Freema Agyeman mind you, because a. she's funny and b. she's getting a good role to act, unlike how they treated her as Martha in "Doctor Who."
And love Gary Sinise, but I'm not surprised "CSI: NY" is canceled. It did however survive at least two (to my knowledge) threats of cancellation before it finally took the bullet, so that says something about the cast - they could pull it out.
"Monday Mornings" - yes I know it's cable, but it hurt because of "Castle" I think.
As I said in the show thread, I am NOT happy about Body of Proof being cancelled.
These network execs have no idea how to program for the 10-11 hour IMO. Especially on Tuesdays apparently. Body of Proof, Vegas and Golden Boy all occupied that slot and all are getting cancelled. I think they're overestimating the demographic for that hour as well as what the actual numbers (viewership) should be.

And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...usually on a broomstick.
We are flexible like that.

Believe nothing that you hear and only half of what you see. :nono
The only show I'm really sad about getting cancelled in "Go On" as I was enjoying it. Oh well.
And then we have Fox pushing Bones to Friday nights come late fall. I don't like this one bit.
