From Bill Brioux with the Canadian Press (who isn’t saying Michael has been cancelled – it hasn’t – just that it’s ratings put it in danger):
- ‘Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays’: hailed by critics, snubbed by viewers
Why do good TV shows get cancelled? … The question comes up again as CBC’s “Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays” comes to the end of its first and possibly final season. The season-ender airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. Hailed by critics as the best new comedy of the year, it has struggled in the ratings, falling below 200,000 viewers in recent weeks. Read more.

I was an avid fan and thought this was a quality program. I am puzzled that it was taken off the air and replaced with Mr. D which doesn’t come close to it in any way. It seems most TV shows are dumbed down – that goes for radio too. What a sad world.
It seems for quality TV my only hope is PBS and Knowledge network.
It wasn’t really replaced with Mr. D – its season was over before Christmas and we’re now waiting to hear about a season 2 (though given the ratings, I’m not holding my breath.)
