As anyone who got hooked on the new shows of this season knows, television executives act very quickly these days. One minute the show is on the schedule and being touted as the next best thing — and the next minute it’s gone and never to be heard from again.
The Megan Mullally Show is the first new syndicated show of the 2006 -2007 season to be struck down. The talk show’s ratings were good initially but, despite the musical Mullally’s best efforts, viewership fell off in the past few months.
Megan recently posted a message to her fans on the show’s website:
I want to thank all of you guys for supporting us. Everyone here had an amazing experience and we’re all very proud of the show we created. It was a fantastic experience for me personally. I’d do it all again in a minute! For those of you who loved the show like we did, thank you, thank you, thank you. From me personally and from everyone on the staff and crew who put their hearts and souls into creating good hearted entertainment.
I’ll see you soon, but in the mean time, be yourself, take a chance, be creative. Your uniqueness is what makes you special, so let it come out. And remember: Anything is possible!
Lots of love, Megan
Though the show was flawed and never quite caught on, the series did have some several funny and memorable moments. If you (like most people apparently) missed the show, sit back and relax (in your uncomfortable office chair) and take a look at some of what you missed.
