Say Goodbye to Susan Floyd

Say so long to Susan Floyd and "Runaway." The CW had canceled the new fall drama featuring the 1986 Oak Hills High School graduate as the real estate agent for a couple (Donnie Wahlberg, Leslie Hope) on the run fropm the law. It was dead last in the Nielsen ratings this fall, No. 104, with only 1.9 million viewers. Reruns of "America’s Next Top Models" will fill the 9 p.m. Sunday slot starting this weekend.
Which show will be the next to go? Or should be the next to go? Fox’s "Happy Hour?" Fox’s "War At Home?" You tell me.

Springer spared
I can’t say I’m surprised that nobody went home on "Dancing with the Stars." "Survivor" and other reality shows have skipped weekly eliminations with a contestant drops out. But things still don’t look good for Jerry Springer, the weakest of the five – with his awful score (18 of 30) this week, and having to perform two dances next week. Judges scores and viewer votes from this week and next will be combined to determine who leaves next Wednesday. I still say Jerry’s time is up.

Radio note
Chis O’Brien and Janeen Coyle interview former "Bionic Woman" Lindsay Wagner on Friday morning on WGRR-FM (103.5), and Peter Falk of "Columbo" fame on Monday.

I hope that the CW is surprised that Runaway failed. When the UPN/WB merger occurred, its biggest victim was Everwood, one of my all-time favorite TV series. CW management decided that Everwood "skewed too old" and wanted a show for a younger audience. I still miss Everwood and still feel a bit of a hole in my heart because it's not there on Mondays. I'm sorry, but I just have to gloat a little that CW so obviously made a bad choice of what to replace Everwood with.

w w w . b r o a d c a s t i n g c a b l e . c o m Lifetime Sees Dead People
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 10/13/2006 7:47:00 AM
Just think of it as Deathtime television.
Cable net Lifetime will debut eerie reality show, Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead, the day before Halloween.
The limited series, which features the "clairvoyant" Brit, will run for six weeks starting Oct. 30 at 8-9 p.m.
The show follows a day in the life of Williams as she gives readings in her L.A. office, makes house calls, or gives "impromptu" messages from the dead to relatives she runs into on the street.
Sounding eerily like the NBC show, Medium, the series also looks at Williams' home life with husband and child, who "they think already shows an interest in natural healing and talking with spirits."
The show is from Merv Griffin Entertainment and Kimo Jagger Productions, with Griffin, Andrew Yani, Raymond Brune, and Yann Debonne executive producers.
