Lauren Graham not sorry to see Gilmore Girls go
In fact, she told Newsweek as much in this week's issue. "I think it's the best decision for the show," she told the magazine. "One of the things Alexis and I wished could be different was the schedule, and it really can't be." (Update: Graham also spoke to TVGuide.com's Mike Ausiello about the show's end.)
Both stars are looking to do more movies, with Graham getting a little further along (Bad Santa, Because I Said So, Evan Almighty) than her young co-star. And she's been pretty forthright in the past about her discomfort with certain events that surrounded the show, from creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's departure to the season six storyline that kept her and Bledel apart for the first half of the season.
This leads me to believe that getting an eighth season was going to be nearly impossible from the start; Graham especially seemed like she was done with the grind and wanted to do something different. So, for those blaming the CW for not bringing the show back (I'm not one of them; I think the show ran one season too long), you really should send your complaints to Graham and Bledel.
