    Has Just shoot me been canceled? I wonder because it has been weeks since I have seen it on NBC and their website lists no new shows in the immediate future.

    I've been wondering the same thing, and was actually going to post the same question here today, but you beat me to it. [​IMG]

    I did a search on Zap2it, and that didn't give much, except a brief mention that the show's ratings have slipped.

    I hope it's not cancelled, I still enjoy it a lot.

    This has got to be the least promoted show on NBC. It's been months since I've seen a commercial for a new episode of JSM. I checked to see if it was still going a few months ago because I thought it had been cancelled, but nope, still on the NBC site.

    Looks like it's been pre-empted for sweeps month, which is never a good sign. I suspect this will be the last year for JSM.

    Its ratings have been awful for the last season or so. I think they even pulled the plug on the new female character.

    Ratings are awful because I never knew exactly when it was on. Now that I have a Tivo, It's absent. [​IMG]

    Yeah, NBC seemed to have dropped their support for JSM this season. I'm guessing it won't be back next season. I hope they give it a decent send-off this season at least.

    Bite the bullet and give brother Donny (David Cross) his own spinoff. I would watch that every night if they showed it.

    David Spade was on "The Tonight Show" yesterday, and Jay asked him about what's going on with JSM and why it's not on the air anymore. David said he didn't know when it'd be back or what was going on, but that they're still filming new episodes. He joked that they'll probably go straight to video.

    So at least we'll hopefully get a real final episode if they decide to cancel it.

    There is a short interview with Wendie Malick (Nina Van Horn) in next week's "TV Guide". It's mainly about her role in the first episode of Fox's new "Oliver Beene", but she also talks about the rapid decline of JSM. She said something about hoping they would get the cancellation notice early enough so that they could film a proper finale.

    Stick a fork in JSM - it's done.

    I don't understand why the networks are constantly preempting their shows for reality programming. I understand that the reality shows often bring big ratings but these shows have a short shelf life whereas a good sitcom or drama can be a hit for many years. By preempting scripted programming constantly they guarantee those shows won't build an audience and will lose the one they have.

    Sure Dog Eat Dog might bring reliable ratings now, but a year from now no one will even remember what the show was. Just Shoot Me on the other hand was a minor hit for NBC with a regular audience and probably still had another couple years in it.

    That's why people are saying that we will soon witness a boom in cable programming. As the big networks finance and then pass on lots of pilots, the cable networks will step in to pickup the good ones that got passed over b/c of this reality nonsense.

    So who missed the new episode of "Just Shoot Me" last night? I think I had seen a promo for it, but it had completely slipped my mind, I accidentally checked the Tivo guide just after 7:30 and saw that it was on, but there was actually TWO episodes back to back, starting at 7:00, so I missed the first one.

    Good episode (as usual, IMO), I'm glad they'll at least show the ones they have in the can already, even if the show will get cancelled after this season.

    Not that it appears to matter anymore, but did they get rid of Rena Sofer's character?

    According to imdb.com, the show has been canceled after Tuesday's abysmal ratings.

    The producer of the show was told by NBC that the show would have run uninterrupted until May's series finale.

    Well, no wonder it didn't get good ratings - who the hell knew that it was on, much less that it was 2 new episodes?

    It would be like Fox complaining about Futurama's ratings...
