TV rant

Once upon a time when there was a show I liked on tv I could tune in week after week for the new episodes. Has anyone else noticed the time between the season premiere and the finale getting shorter and shorter? I watch this show on TNT, the Closer. I got a measly 10 episodes! Is that supposed to pass for a full season? But the absolute kicker was this new show I was watching on HGTV, All American Handyman. It was supposed to be a competition between 20 guys and girls for the title. If you didn't see it, don't worry, you didn't miss much. Four episodes!!!! That's all. Really???? They eliminated 10 people in the very first show. I don't understand, don't they want me to watch their shows on their network? It's enough to make me turn to network television. Luckily the television Gods have started me with new seasons of other shows. Bones, House, Modern Family, Dancing with the Stars... Personally I think the television producers have ADD. Or maybe they think we do...

I was wondering about the shorter seasons too! Seems like some just started and are already ending! Arent they supposed to go from September/October to like April?!

Yes, I have noticed that for a while. I think it started with the Sopranos and their "half" season...ugh. Dexter's seasons seem short to me too. I think the producers just want to cram more shows in in a year, so they can make more money,.

The other problem in Australia is just because it's on at one time one week, doesn't mean it'll be the same time next week.

Or even the same day.

Oh I love my tv! Modern Family is awesome!

Its annoying how the shows I hate are never ending, but the shows I love are gone too quickly!

I think they don't give the audience enough credit. They sometimes don't even give a show a whole season before they cancel it.

It's like the last season of lost...like 18 episodes or something. And that's really short, it used to be much longer. I think they thing we are ADD. Totally.
