that other one with Michael Rappaport...so good I can't even remember their names off the top of my head).
Prison Break?
Nah this was before he turned up on that (I think, I didn't watch Prison Break but I thought he showed up on it a couple of seasons in).

The show was called The War at Home and oh god was it shite.

I had never seen the British version, but the ABC version of Life on Mars has grown on me. I'm glad they are allowing for the show to have a true conclusion... and it's probably for the best... As others have said, I think it's a premise that really wasn't going to lend itself to a 3 to 5 season run anyways.

I'm still sorta bummed about Eli Stone as well, Although I was never a regular viewer, it was another one that grew on me the more I watched it. Pushing Daises was just always a bit off for me...  It struck me as something I knew I should be enjoying more than I was,  but gave up on trying after four or five shows.

I said it a few months ago, but doesn't it seem like a boat-load of shows are being cancelled this season? Well, I suppose we can always take heat in the fact that Smallville got renewed, for it's NINTH season...

Isn't that Cable? It seems to me that cable television shows are much more secure than network stuff.

Oh yes but I was sure it'd still get canceled.

Yeah, when they truncated Season 2 because of the writers' strike, FX decided to leave it off for good.

Psych rules. We have the 2nd season DVD and watch an ep. every friday night. :)

Looking forward to the release of the 3rd season. 

30 Rock and The Office are a "go" for next year, aren't they?

Yeah, in fact, I believe The Office might've been renewed for 2 years. 

Psych is awesome, though cable's weird schedule is a bit mystifying: showing half of a season and then taking a break for a couple of months until the next half.  Seasons 3 has some superb homages to 80s movies in it.  Especially the Friday the 13th one.
