    Yes, I know that I'm a girlie-man for loving this show, but I do. Apparently, Alexis Bledel wouldn't sign for a full season and they pulled the plug. Two more episodes left.

    An excellent (and occasionally brilliant) show with three standout actresses -- Lauren Graham, Kelly Bishop and Liza Weil. I hope that Emmy voters get their collective act and give Lauren Graham a nomination. This past Tuesday's episode wouldn't be a bad one to submit.

    I love the show because everything is so fast paced. :D

    P.S. It's really funny too.

    Girlie man here, too then. Mrs. Clarkington will be sad to see it go, too. So they're finishing this season and then ending it huh? Booo.
    And speaking of Lauren Graham, did anyone see "Because I said so" .... great scene with her and Mandy Moore and girl from Coyote Ugly in their undies. Very nice.

    Well, if anything's going to bring BYH back to the board, this will do it.

    That said, I've never watched the show.

    I never knew there were plots; I just thought it was about Lauren Graham.

    The rapid-fire banter of TV's `Gilmore Girls' to end after seven years
    Eds: UPDATES throughout
    AP Television Writer

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - "Gilmore Girls," the saga of an independent mother and daughter that helped strengthen the young WB network, will end its run after seven seasons.

    The show, which last year moved to the CW network created by the merger of WB and UPN, will air its final episode on May 15, CW and producer Warner Bros. Television announced Thursday.

    "Gilmore Girls," starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel and created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, "helped define a network and created a fantastic storybook world featuring some of television's most memorable, lovable characters," CW and the studio said in a joint statement.

    They thanked fans for their "passionate support" and promised to give the show "the send-off it deserves."

    Ratings had dipped this season for the series, which lost Sherman-Palladino as its guiding hand because of a contract dispute.

    The drama with comic overtones followed the lives of single mom Lorelai Gilmore (Graham) and her equally bright and beautiful daughter as they grew up together, struggled through romances and tried to find their place in the world.

    Rapid-fire patter, the series' hallmark, delighted fans but took a toll on its cast.

    "Getting the language perfect requires a number of takes that you might not have on another show," Graham told The Associated Press in January 2006.

    "It's just a lot of work _ 13, 14 hours door to door. I've missed weddings, I've missed babies being born. I'm not complaining, because of what it has brought me, but I would be ready for a different balance."

    Sherman-Palladino and her husband and fellow executive producer, Daniel Palladino, left after failing to come to terms with the studio on a new deal, and the series struggled creatively and in the ratings this season.

    The April 24 episode drew fewer than 4 million viewers, down about 25 percent compared to the same time last year.

    As production on the show got under way last fall, its future then uncertain, Graham speculated about the final chapter.

    "I care very much how the story ends," Graham said told the AP. "... It would be my worst nightmare if we end the show with a wedding. To me, the premise of the show was, `What if your parent was your best friend?'"

    "That's the thing you leave people with, the strength of this family and this relationship," she said.

    So now two shows on the CW are being canned?

    I've always thought Rory was kinda cute...:D

    Aw, this makes me sad. Hate to see the train wreck as they try to wrap it up in two shows.

    If next year's Secret Santa is listening, I'd like the entire GG set on DVD... :D
