the cancellation of the west wing
NBC has made offical what many people thought would happen: they've canceled The West Wing. Actually, they canceled it before John Spencer passed away on December 16. They're just now announcing it.
They also announced that creator Aaron Sorkin and director/producer Tommy Schlamme will not be involved in the finale. Damn.
The series will end with a two hour episode on May 14. A one hour retrospective will air just before the finale. (Personally, I'm happy the show is ending. The quality has dropped off the past couple of years, and like NBC says, it's time.)
So tell us West Wing fans: how would you like the show to end?
