What happened to THAT'S MY BUSH!?

I wonder if they pulled the show so that people didnt look down on George Bush, but the show was great and actually made me like him more.

I was wondering that the other day, and I'm sure it got canned due to ratings

I know it wasn't the success they were hoping it would be

While ratings weren't huge, it was cancelled because production costs were not proportional to the ratings. It was a Glick vs. Bush thing. Glick had lower ratings but was significantly cheaper to produce, so they went with it and dropped Bush.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out there were preasures from higher up the food chain to cancel it do to the content. I loved the show and thought it was hysterical. I couldn't even be bothered with Glick.

It was cancelled, however they were talking about doing a feature film in the near future.

That's my Bush was hilarious. I loved it when Dick Cheney took over and it became That's my Dick!

This show was brilliant and very funny on many levels. I'm sorry they let it go. I feel it was a huge mistake on their part.

I don't miss it that much. What I'm interested is what happened to Welcome to New York?

Good description. What some people thought was not funny I found to be brilliant. The That's My Dick episode was one of the most unique things I'd ever seen.

At first I didn't watch it because usually shows that try to parody a certain genre (i.e. sitcoms) get old rather quick. It ends up being too much like the genre that's being parodied. But I heard good things about it, caught an episode and I was hooked. While they did parody sitcoms, that wasn't the main focus for the comedy which kept it fresh to me.

(and That's My Dick had me )
