Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Final season of West Wing?

Tim Cuprisin's column in the local daily indicates the following:

The move of NBC's "The West Wing" to Sunday nights hasn't brought in new viewers, with only 9 million folks tuning in, a couple million less than last season's average.

The move to 7:00 CST Sundays means the show competes directly with the Simpsons. Certainly, not all Simpsons viewers are also West Wing viewers. However, I'm sure I'm not alone in being a fan of both shows, and I'm speaking as someone who doesn't watch a lot of televison. The departure of Aaron Sorkin combined with this time change may seal the fate of the West Wing, one of the few shows I've watched religiously for over five years.

Also note that starting in 2006, NBC is carrying Sunday Night NFL Football--meaning "The West Wing," if it continued, would be pre-empted all the time anyway. Sarah and I figured that the move was kind of like putting Grandma in the home . . .
