Happy New Year, Good News, You're Canceled!

You know, I was going to quit this blog to join Sammy Davis Jr. on his tour of Vietnam. Ah, maybe next year. In the meantime look what's canceled!

The Nate Berkus Show- While you were out being a conscientious shopper and ringing in holiday cheer, your favorite show was being snuffed out. "The Nate Berkus Show" was relieved of its duties late last year. Isn't that something? I bet he didn't say a peep about it when you bumped into him. This program was a joint production vehicle for Sony and Harpo. And you know what? This show was always hellacious. Here's what's going to happen. They're going to let this wreck stagger on for the rest of the season and that's it. Finished.

The Nate Berkus Show-2010-2012 and a half.

The Martha Stewart Show- This is a goner too. Believe it or not, I thought it was gone already. This snoozer debuted in 1959 2005 and escaped to the Hallmark Channel where it proved to be even more irrelevant. Really, how do you get canceled on the Hallmark Channel? That's a feat right there. During her Hallmark Channel run Stewart had no problems with the normal syndication woes of awful times and production value deficits. Martha did have one big issue though: No one cared about her show! GoOdBye!!!

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition- Uh oh. I bet you didn't know this was off the schedule did you? I'm the bearer of bad news. Well if you ask me, it's good news! ABC lowered the boom on Ty Pennington and the Gang a few days 'fore Christmas. Ain't that something. But to be honest this show had lost it's way years ago. I think the saddest show was when Ty put a couple of kids in a cannon, pulled the rope and said, "We're going to Sears!"

Through the years, Pennington's over caffeinated and corny demeanor had grated let's face it, some of those houses were ridiculous. The design teams were also annoying as well as the picks. In the shows later years rapper Xzibit joined the show as a last ditch effort to get viewers. It didn't work. Xzbit hadn't had a hit in 50 years, they might as well have had Lloyd Price driving in nails.

Part 2: The show ran for 5,000 years. We'll miss it.
