    I am sick that this show went off the air. I am not a tv watcher, but this show was the highlight of my week. I am terribly disappointed. I finally broke down and got TiVo just for this show. I disagree that this show was viewed by a primarily male audience.

    I dont like tv all that much but this show had a lot of stars and a good story line. It never had a dull moment if it would have been on any other tv station it would have made it. This was a show that a man and a woman could actually watch together and enjoy it. Bad choice on cancelling the show.
