Why?! Why?! Why?!

Internet junkie right here. Sometimes, I rather watch the newest episode of "Family Guy" on Hulu.com instead than view it on Cartoon Network or the Fox Channel. I feel that the Internet is the next TV screen. I can watch which shows I want whenever, wherever I want.

But do you know what gets on my freaking nerves? When certain cable networks feel like that its their duty to pull the plug on certain new and upcoming television shows. For example, all last month I was watching "Eastwick" on Hulu.com. For those who do not watch the show, you should have see the 1980s movie adaptation with Jack Nicholson, Susan Surandon, Cher, and Michelle Pfeffier. Awesome movie. But anyway, Hulu.com was promoting the new fall show on its website for a limited time.

Last Thursday, I anxiously waited for the new Eastwick episode, only to realize that Hulu.com removed the whole series from its website because ABC cancelled the show after seven episodes. I thought the show had a good storyline and character development. Now, I do not hate Hulu.com because the website is not the show's primary carrier. Hulu.com gets permission from TV networks to show movies and TV shows for free. ABC is the culprit. But do you hate that really good shows sometimes are let go yet stupid reality TV shows like The Hills are on for another season? Come on, I want my quality television back. Remember The Cosby Show and Firefly? Remember when shows used to entertain us? Now, we are surrounded by garbage. What do you think?

Oh, I couldn't agree more...haven't a clue where the networks get some of their crappy ideas...do they think the viewing public is stupid?
