Smallville Was Cancelled This Week…WTF??

29 Jan

This is my vent session.  I suppose it’s good that the only thing that I really want to vent about is the fact that my favorite show ever was pushed back one more week.  I’m sure it sounds silly, but I would rather vent about something that won’t really affect me in the long run as opposed to something that I probably will always be angry about, like our government.  But, I’m not going to go there.  I want to keep my vent somewhat light-hearted.

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, I love Smallville.  Addicted really.  The first season is on my TV now as background noise.  Quick synopsis: Smallville is about the early days of Clark Kent.  He is trying to discover who he is and what destiny has in store for him.  If you have never seen it, but love Superman, I suggest you watch it,  You won’t be disappointed.

Anyways, Smallville took a holiday hiatus and after six weeks of much anticipation the CW network decided to pull it at the last-minute and push it back one more week.  I was infurriated, as was the rest of my household (Paige and Layla).  This is the one show we all sit down and watch as a family.  We are so dedicated in fact that the rest of our friends and family know on Fridays from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. we are not to be bothered.  Unless in extreme cases of emergency.  Not kidding.

We still don’t know the reason CW cancelled Smallville  last night.  Some say it was because American Idol was on and they didn’t want Smallville to lose viewers because of it.  FYI: Smallville fans are completely dedicated to Smallville.  Most fans have watched since the show started 10 years ago.  Yes, ten years!  Just because some silly talent show (don’t get me wrong I love American Idol, but that’s a later post) is on TV doesn’t mean fans will just stop watching.  Especially after 6 weeks of previews and hype about the amazing new episode.

Fans were outraged.  I checked out discussion boards on Facebook and people were pissed.  I understand.  It was like a slap in the face and they only reported the cancellation about 15 hours before the show was supposed to air. I’m not so angry about it now.  One more week and my beloved show will be back, but my heart was crushed for a moment by CW’s lack of compassion.

    Shocking news, Chloe.
    The good thing is you have another week to look forward to the new episode. Yay!
    I know it doesn’t help, but it was worth a try!
    (I’m disappointed if it is put back half an hour…!)

      Yeah, I was utterly disappointed, but I’m over it now! I will just have to start a new count down to next week 😉
