    Pair of co-exec producers get pink slips on Sunday. Sounds like they were the hands-on pilots of the show, too. I knew the show was struggling this season (well... last season, too), but I didn't realize it was this dire. For myself, I admit to watching the first episode this season, and that's it. They lost me pretty quickly last year, too.

    Is anyone still watching?

    After last season, I quit watching.
    It was so uneven, and seemed full of itself.
    From what I've heard -- mostly here -- this season has been a further slippage into hell.

    I haven't watched it since about 3/4 of the way through the first season.

    Some of us still watch. This season is better than last year, but the damage has been done. Throw in the whole SureshFly thing, and it's not a shock many viewers are tired of it.

    As soon as it got popular, it lost its guts and creativity.

    This is a shame. I'm a fan of Loeb.

    Show has turned into complete garbage, so fuck them.

    Happily, Hayden Panettiere shows every sign of being able to step into the void created by the temporary retirements/abdications of Britney, Lindsay and Paris.

    God bless you Starman.

    God. Bless. You.

    She is smokin. Of course I feel a bit skeevy having remembred her from Ally McBeal AND Remember the Titans, but, you know, I'm over it! :D

    Starman just gave BYH eight seconds of sheer enjoyment.

    I'm OK with that feeling.

    Now there's a distasteful thought.

    I think that getting rid of Loeb makes it even less likely that things will get any better.

    I still like the show, but if it's going over budget like that, then NBC doing everything to kill the show by season's end, if that long.

    Like many shows like this (24 being the big exception), it's really hard to have a superb follow up year. Season 1 was good, and you follow the story. But I suddenly lost interest when at the end of the last episode of season 1, we see Hiro in what appeared to be medevial times.
    Easy to have a good serial concept and do a good first year on that concept but then then next season is a dissapointment because the initial concept is used.

    That and the fact that suddenly Season 2 started, seemed to pause forever and restarted again. And I never knew when it was on.
