The Nine Lives of Seventh Heaven

You have got to be kidding me. The new CW has released its fall schedule, and as previously reported here, "Veronica Mars" has been picked up for another season. So has Bailey favorite "America's Next Top Model." Not so lucky are fans of "Everwood," although apparently the show has filmed a season ender that provides some closure.

The most shocking show in the lineup? "Seventh Heaven." How is this show still around?! I used to watch an episode here or there in the early seasons, but it just got so preachy (I know this is a show about a preacher, but come on!), the writing is so stilted, the storylines are just ridiculous. And it's coming back again? Who watches this show? I mean, Barry Watson and Jessica Biel aren't even on anymore to provide some eye candy (although I never thought Biel was all that attractive).

I hadn't posted on this because I'm just too upset, for multiple reasons. First: 7th Heaven was cancelled. Yay! Later: It's been resurrected. Boo! They've toyed with my emotions too much.

And the cancellation of Everwood . . . dude. This is one of the best shows on television. It really is. It's heart wrenching. They actually STOPPED recapping it on Television Without Pity because it was too good to snark at. It is just so frustrating that it never got the audience it deserved.

The one bright spot is that Veronica Mars is being paired with Gilmore Girls. It finally has the lead-in that makes sense. Fingers crossed that helps the ratings and Dawn Ostroff doesn't exercise her right to downgrade the episode order from 22 to 13.
