Spike cancels The Kill Point
I know, I know: 69% of you are saying, "what the heck is The Kill Point?" (50% of you might even be saying, "what the heck is Spike?" I call those people "women.")
Spike has canceled the Donnie Wahlberg drama after only one season. The show actually got decent ratings, especially among guys of a certain age, but the network has decided to go crazy on reality shows instead of investing in original, scripted programming. A spokesman for the network gave this quote: "We are out of the serialized one-hour business. We need programming that we can repeat." Oh, I'm sure TV fans are gritting their teeth over that one.
I never watched The Kill Point (the plot description makes it sound a little like CBS' Smith), so I have no idea if it was worth renewing or not, but I do cringe every time a show is pushed aside to make way for more unscripted shows. I love it when Spike runs James Bond movie marathons, but I can do without more reality shows and ultimate fighting.
