I hate it when they cancel my favorite TV shows:
Bad guys no longer have to fear the "L.A. Dragnet" crimebusters. ABC on Thursday canceled the show starring Ed O'Neill as police Sgt. Joe Friday. The series, based on the classic Jack Webb "Dragnet" series, had low ratings despite a second-season makeover.
I could see this coming -- they had moved the show to the Dead Zone of network programming, Saturday nights -- but had hoped that the quality of the show and Dick Wolf's influence would keep it on the air a bit longer while it found its niche. I liked the original line-up but thought the second-season improvements were very good. I loved Ed O'Neill as Joe Friday, too. What a bummer. I'd call for a viewer protest, but three out of the five of us are out of town this weekend.Sphere It View blog reactions
