'Legend of the Seeker' Canceled

legend of the seekerSorry, 'Legend of the Seeker' fans. The syndicated fantasy show couldn't cast a spell over enough viewers to earn a third season, as the Ausiello Files is reporting that Sam Raimi's swashbuckling series has been canceled.

'Seeker' was having a tough time pulling in decent numbers for local stations associated with its distributor, Tribune Stations Group. Apparently, not even a steamy girl-on-girl kiss between 'Buffy' alum Charisma Carpenter and hottie Tabrett Bethell could generate enough interest to keep the show alive. A number of Tribune stations dropped 'Seeker' last month, and the networks have shown no interest in picking it up, leading to its cancellation.

Now is not a great time for action-oriented cult TV shows. With 'Seeker' on the chopping block and last year's cancellation of 'Stargate Atlantis,' it seems like the tube is being scrubbed clean of light, fun, geek-friendly series. It's definitely not the '90s anymore, when shows like Raimi and Robert Tapert's 'Hercules' and 'Xena' could go for six seasons. Let's hope one of the better action-packed shows to debut this year, Fox's 'Human Target,' can beat the current trend.

The Bonnie Hunt Show is coming to an end

bonnie_hunt_show_WBAfter a two year stint in syndication, The Bonnie Hunt Show is coming to an end. In a syndicated world where the gossip-mongering of TMZ, The Insider and Extra thrive, a sweet talk show like Bonnie's just didn't cut the mustard. Apparently, there's only room for one show like that and it's called The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Warner Brothers, which syndicates The Bonnie Hunt Show, announced its decision to take it off the air at the end of this season. Bonnie addressed her staff immediately. I'm sure Bonnie Hunt's agent is busy lining up new projects for her. She's too funny, too talented and too good to be out of work for long. I hope the employees on her show do as well.

It's official: Guiding Light is canceled

guiding light cast at 70
The die was cast today. CBS canceled Guiding Light, the longest running TV program still on the air. The soap opera will cease broadcasting on Friday, September 18, 2009.

As I wrote the other day, the prospects looked grim for Guiding Light, and apparently my idea of letting the show continue until it reached its 75th anniversary (three years from now) was only popular with fans. I heard from many the past couple of days. They, like me, are sorry to see Guiding Light come to an end.
