Summer TV's First Casualty: "Creature Comforts"

Summer TV's First Casualty: "Creature Comforts"

Remember how when I was first writing about "Creature Comforts," I mentioned that I was already mourning its premature cancellation? Well, this is the kind of thing I hate to be right about, but CBS quietly announced today that "Creature Comforts" is gone, to be replaced by repeats of "The New Adventures of Old Christine."

Sigh.

I'm baffled on this one because CBS already spent the money to make the show, and, according to the ratings reports I've seen, it was getting the same number of viewers as the "Old Christine" reruns it was paired with. Plus, it was only supposed to run for a few more weeks anyway.

There's no word yet on whether the unaired episodes will surface online eventually, but I certainly hope so. After all, I've gotten rather attached to these guys over the past few weeks (especially my favorites, the mother owl and her grumpy teenage son), and I'd like to hear the rest of what they have to say, even if most of America doesn't.

I love the parakeets! I'll miss all of them, but it does seem as though this was going to happen sooner rather than later. How sad.
