Originally posted by B.A.hist Damn, that sucks. I still like the show a lot, but it definitely peaked after its first two seasons, imo. Those first two years were classic television.
how did it go from so very good to so very mediocre? i think with all that nbc is losing and all the crap they have come up with, that there is still a place for an Ed next season, but if it was really high quality i'd feel a lot worse, but it's not. only mike and nancy stories are consistantly worth watching for.

Yeah, I feel pretty much the same. I'm scared Mike and Nancy might have trouble finding other decent acting jobs. I can't get enough of Mike and his boss is great too.
As someone who has watched Ed from the beginning, all I can say is damn. This show, with all it's faults and Carol's annoyingness has consistently been among my favorites and always on my to-watch list. I will miss the great writing of this show.
On a brighter note: The sooner Ed is off the air...the sooner the dvd's come out. Who knows...we might even end up with dvds by the february of next year!
Location: The Quad-city area of Melonville, Meckling, the Boro of Melon, and Party Town
Then they are shooting right up until the last minute.
They've been shooting principal EXTs all week around here. Monday there was a BIG set-up in Tappan, and early on Wednesday I saw the whole caravan of DRs/offices heading thru Norwood/HP.
At least I assumed it was Ed; unless there's another big production around here.
Stuckeyville.com is referring to the show in the past tense. This must have been out of the blue, as they are as completely surprised as anyone.
EDIT: Forgot to mention: there are a coupla guys at our swim club that are pretty high up in the ED office on the prod. staff. Last summer, I chatted one up (since our kids were playing together) and he CASUALLY mentioned that the show was working under the assumption that since NBC renewed ED for a fourth season they would also renew it for a fifth season. He never said if this had to do with network support, or economics of syndication (as I believe was the case with Profiler and Pretender), or whatever........
"Mademoiselle, beer me dos Long Island ice teas, si vous plais."
Wow, do you think the NBC suits must be sweating about now? No Ed. No Boomtown (or any other new, promising show). No Friends. No Frasier. ER getting *very* long in the tooth. West Wing is a pale shell of its former self.
What is the game plan for next season? Reality TV 24/7, with occasional breaks for Law & Order?
I haven't even seen it in weeks....has it even been on in the last three weeks? Every wed. night i've tuned it there's been some reality bullshit on...
Pavel Datsyuk on his coach saying he gives teammates extra room on the ice: "I think he meant that I am really small," Datsyuk explained. "So when I, a small slim person, am on the ice, there is more room for bigger guys. Maybe he said that to cheer me up that I look skinny!"

Ditto. I wonder will NBC actually bring Miss Match back like they said or will they just cancel that show too. It's aggrivating when suits declare there's nothing good on TV but then they cancel the quality shows already out there.
