Ding, ding ding!

We in televisionland have a winner! Not the contest you want to win, but someone has to be first on the chopping block. With that in mind, FOX proudly presents the first casualty of the new season: Head Cases! Two broadcasts and buh-bye! Now that's a surprise. Because my vote for first cancellation would have gone to Night Stalker. Poor update/adaptation. A pilot in which the best part was something about a hat on a hatstand (according to a guy I talked to a few weeks ago who had seen the pilot). A charisma-free lead according to a review in one of the trades. Oh, and also scheduled Thursday nights at 9pm, territory patrolled by "CSI: Vegas, Baby, Vegas" and some inexplicably high rated piece-o-crap starring de Trumpster, he of the frightening rug. But swami says that soon, very soon, "Night Stalker" will join the cancellation hit parade. Like, really soon. In island news, Young Lust 2005 apparently continues unabated and Lisa's emails are rapidly becoming incoherent. Something about hickies and Lisa wanting to puke. Stuff like that. On the other hand, mom returns tomorrow night, followed by dad in a couple weeks and why do I have the horrible feeling that soon, very soon, Lisa will have her revenge on my "better you than me" heartlessness...
