Wanda at Large....CANCELLED

I could never get into this show. But at the same time, doesnt this follow fox's general pattern that if it doesnt thrive initially it wont be around for long?

I don't think there'll be too much sorrow for its passing on this forum. I, however, found it to be a funny, sarcastic, mean spirited show. Which is why I liked it.

Although, I really don't blame FOX too much...they did promote the hell outta it. Perhaps they have a new Average Simple Joe Who Wants To Marry My Millionaire show waiting in the wings..

Fox killed it by moving it to Fridays. Which begs the question-- how long does Boston Public have?

Not good enough. She needs to be driven from the business.

Honk!

Well, she wasn't on Inside the NFL this week. Maybe the process of purging her from the airways is underway.

I find Wanda Hillarious and really enjoyed her show. Another Fox disappointment for me.

I found her funny, but not everybody likes her. It's too bad that she was on such a crappy time slot, I'm not surprised. I stopped caring once it moved to Friday nights.

I wanted to like it, but it just didn't do it for me.

I used to find her funny when she was doing her one-minute intros as host of that Comedy Central stand-up show. But her act ceases to be amusing in larger doses.
