Okay, NOW I'm pissed. The only half decent comedy on network TV is being pulled: http://edition.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/TV/11/11/television.shows.reut/index.html
I guess people need to be told when it's okay to laugh (cue laugh track), or the jokes need to be so obvious that you can see them coming a mile away. Arrested Development did neither, and is now deemed unfit for the average viewer.
What does this tell us? Well, it seems that much like the obesity epidemic, the "TV idiot" epidemic is sweeping North America. While it's "okay" if you didn't like AD, I have to question the fact that people don't like AD but enjoy the other moronic shit available.
I mean seriously, is there anything on TV (or in the movies for that matter) that isn't so redundant, a 5 year old can predict what will happen?
