    Hmm I tried to watch it but wasn't really impressed. Kinda a Sopranos meets The OC.

    Online petitions never work.

    To the OP:

    I don't want to break your heart, but I am pretty sure NBC already DID cancel it last week.

    They canceled Crossing Jordan for reality TV, doubt we can change that.

    But in the Black Donnellys case, I think a reality TV show might be an improvement -- even if it was a show about people passed out in an Irish Pub.

    You can catch the reaming episodes on Monday nights at 9pm and will be available for download on iTunes.

    Meh and I just bought the season pass 2 weeks ago :eek: I thought it was one of the stronger shows on Monday prime time television.

    Reality TV is never an improvement.

    No thanks. I have watched them all and now that I think about it, it tries too hard and isn't really very good.

    Put Studio 60 back on you NBC bastards.

    Since this thread is turning that way anyway..

    I think what burns me the most is the quasi-reality shows (mostly **** on MTV), that are really just soaps made to look like a reality show. And I'm not talking about Real World or whatnot. I'm talking about the The Hills. So dumb.

    I downloaded the free copy of the pilot off of iTunes... so is it not worth watching? :D

    I wanted to like this show but it's quite dull. I can't say I'd be upset to see it go.

    It tries to be serious but then it has that goofy guy narrating the story, annoying.

    I tried it too. I have to tell you, they made the right decision- not a good show.

    I watched the first episode... wasn't any good. Quite disappointing, actually. Too bad, but I think this one time the network is making the right choice.

    I tried to watch the first 2 minutes of the pilot and had to stop cause it was so bad.

    If you want to watch a great show about Irish-Americans watch Showtime's "Brotherhood". Awesome:)

    And if you want to see a much better show by the same creator try EZ Streets. It was short lived. Lasting only 9 episodes in 1996 before CBS canceled it because "the deep plot and character development made it hard to attract new viewers who missed the pilot episode." I haven't seen this show in over a decade, but to this day I still think of it as one of my favorite shows of all time. Just found this DVD, unfortunately it's only 3 out of the 9 episodes.
