It's useful inflamatery remarks like that I'd usually edit off of boards like these as flames. But I guess moderating a moderator is probably not the thing to do.

I haven't actually seen any of the episodes, but this does seem like an odd decision. Do you know if there's a big drop in ratings between this and "Soul Food" (which I've never heard of)? I suppose there's a case of absolute vs relative here - if you have a fly-on-the-wall documentary, it may only need 10,000 viewers to pay for itself, whereas an SF series may need 100,000 (pulling numbers out of the air). Shame though, since there are obviously a lot of people who enjoyed watching it.

Well having seen some of the series - It looked okay, but really I didn't think it had the IT which meant that I had to set the video recorder to watch it.

It does seem strange that their 2nd rated program is being pulled. Considering unlike a fly-on-the-wall documentory (for example), most good SF makes most of it's money due to syndication - you would think that they would have learnt that after ST:TOS.

Why do the US Networks place so much faith in some magic 'ratings' rather than actually going out and asking real people ? Answers on a postcard to the usual address !
