    Looks like Boston Public is droping cast members again. From Zap2it.com:

    This looks pretty good - Ms. Shavers being dropped is basically an admission that there's not enough material for her to be a regular, and they never did find anything for McIntyre to do.

    A less severe situation than the beginning of this season - which I think actually improved the show - but a pretty useful streamlining.

    Boy... is Mr. Kelly installing exit doors on all his series? [​IMG]

    Seriously, though, no big loss here. The cast was too large. This trimming seems about right.

    The Practice, on the other hand, lost me when they changed nights... and they won't get me back with the cast cuts they made.

    Lemme get this straight...

    McIntyre & Abrahams played the two "boy" teachers, right? Good riddence.

    Shavers was Harper's daughter?? Well, she graduated, so this makes sense. At least they didn't come up with some contrived way to keep her on the show.

    And DiLizia was the pregnant office assistant?? No big loss here either. Her storyline was played out. They can bring back Rashida Jones and I'd be happy... [​IMG]

    As long as they're keeping Anthony Heald (BP's MVP, as far as I'm concerned), Chi McBride, & Michael Rappaport I guess the BP Season Pass will stay on my TiVo for another year.

    Well, Brooke is going to Harvard, so why would she be featured (prominantly) in BP even as a cast regular, unless they were going with more focus on Stephen's home life.

    Youngling #1 and #2 never did much to warrant a second season.

    At least its realistic. Teachers usually last two years before burning out on the low pay and high stress.

    Shavers wasn't bad, but she didn't have that much to do. As for the other three, good riddance. I wish Jeri Ryan would go, but as long as Steven, Scott, Danny, Marla, and Harvey stick around they'll be in good shape. What they really need is new writers.

    I just realized it's kind of ironic how Harper gave the whole speech about not getting rid of any teacher's because of budget cuts. I guess that's before he had to worry about Kelley's annual cuts, which make much more sense this year than last.

    Yeah, no one's gonna care about McIntyre and Abrahams. They were boring and looked too much alike. They were never good replacements for Jessalyn Gilsig and Rashida Jones.

    Brooke and Marcy are graduating, so I guess it makes sense for them to leave, though I think I'll miss Marcy.

    As long as Michael Rapaport's still there, I think these changes are fine. The most worrying change though is moving to Fridays. Who watches tv on Friday nights. Think about the shows that were on Fox Friday nights the last couple years; Pasadena, Dark Angel, Firefly, John Doe, Fastlane....you see where I'm going with this?

    No kidding. Any musical guest or number in David Kelly's shows tends to be really annoying. Like when he tried to shove Vonda Shepard's mediocre music down our throats in Ally McBeal.

    Did Kelley ever throw in any musical numbers in The Practice?

    Actually he did a couple times begining of this season. Remember when Lindsay had the case about the woman that kept singing and disturbing her neighbor?
