Scoop: Desperate Housewives To End This Season
http://www.tvline.com/2011/08/scoop-desperate-housewives-to-end-this-season/

It’s a sad day for the smart and sassy suburban women on Wisteria Lane: Sources confirm that ABC will announce on Sunday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that this 2011-2012 season will be the last for long-running Desperate Housewives.

Key castmembers are starting to be told, and we hear that Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Eva Longoria are shocked and saddened since the ABC Studios series created by Marc Cherry was expected to continue until 2013 after the longtime showrunner said that he wanted the show to go for nine seasons.

When this season’s premiere episode is broadcast on Sunday, September 25th, it will be the first without Cherry at the helm. He stepped down at the end of last season as executive producer/showrunner and is expected to be a consultant on Season 8 while focusing on development of other series. Cherry also was slapped by former castmate Nicolette Sheridan with an embarrassing lawsuit which is still winding its way through the Los Angeles courts. Since the provocative and profitable dramedy’s premiere on October 3, 2004, the show has been a hit with viewers and critics alike: a solid Nielsen performer as well as a multiple Emmy and Screen Actors Guild award winner. The series premiere drew 21.6 million viewers and the show’s first season finale attracted over 30 million viewers. Since 2006 and continuing into 2010, it was the most-watched comedy series internationally, with an average viewership of 51.6 million viewers across 68 territories. Moreover, it was the third-highest revenue earning show for 2010, with $2.74 million per half hour.

It's too bad it took 7 seasons for Marc Cherry to finally step down. Hopefully this season is vastly different ... in a good way.

I'm glad they'll know they are ending. It's a shame the show went so off-track. It was really such a fun, different show in Season 1 and even Season 2. Last season was better than the past few, IMO, but still not great.

Nah....this is the right time. I am glad they are ending it this year because it was starting to get really bad. Season 1 was fantastic. Season 2-3 sucked. Season 4 was wonderful and after that it was crud.
