    Not to bum you guys out but it IS possible that they might NOT re air it. So we should definitely write.

    I am also wondering if they are going to take this opportunity to do some re-editing.

    Ugh, frustrating. I don't want to have to wait until July, though as others have pointed out, at least they are still going to show the remaining episodes. It just seems that in the intervening months it will be easy for spoilers to leak out re: who is gay and who is not.

    I know, but as John pointed out they are still under contract not to reveal, we will probably know for sure who is gay/straigt but, not who she picks.

    e-mail fox

    go to Fox TV website and e-mail askfox...airing your complaints. 3 million viewers is 3 million viewers and the more that e-mail their frustrations may bring ti back sooner for those of us that have been watching.

    I'm in Winnipeg and just checked my local listings for tomorrow night on Global and it shows Playing It Straight and then Wonderfalls. I know FOX had moved Wonderfalls to Thursday but on Thursdays Global will air Survivor and then The Apprentice here. Guess I will have to wait and see. I'm still outraged about it being reaired or whatever. You can't show us four episodes and then cancel or whatever the hell you are doing.

    Oh really? Halleluah, there's hope!! Go Canada!!

    Poot, you make a good point that it'll be a good thing if more people were to tune in to this show, but I think Fox should have done that promotional ground work, schedule details, etc before airing the show. And if that meant that the show didn't air until July, that's fine. What sucks is to get roped in to the whole show and then have it abruptly canned. It's great that they think there's potential for this show to do better. Although I think Fox is waiting until summer purely from a profit stand point and not a social good standpoint.
