All I could figure was maybe NBC was purposely having the show go out ruined so it would be less attractive to ABC or CBS or anyone else who might want to pick it up and run it against DOOL's time slot. Of course, that involves a lot of fantasy on my part that DOOL is actually sought by other nets.

Am I the only one almost wishing the show was cancelled? If the result of renewal means trimming the budget by several actors, losing sets and still continued bad ass writing, then I wished everyone could have gotten a happy ending and be done with it.
No you aren't. I think that would have been right thing to do. If the show is in such a financial mess that it had to let the star of the show go, what exactly is their reason for continuing? What show continues once they've done that?! Sure, the remaining cast/crew will get a (smaller) pay check for the next 18 months, but is continuing this charade really worth it?! DAYS was just barely making it as it was. Now with more cuts, it will no doubt only get worse.
I'm just glad that once Deidre and Drake exit, I can finally wash my hands of this show!
