Fox’s Winter Schedule 2008

Well, at least Fox decided to cut back on the reality shows, or should we say show?

“When Women Ruled the World” has been shelved for the time being. The reality series would have plunked down some men on a primitive location where the women build a society where they are the power players.
In order to win, the men must accede to the women’s every demand, 24/7. Over the series’ duration, the men will be eliminated by the women until one last man is standing.

On Mondays, Fox will double pump the dramas with the derivative “New Amsterdam,” a stale tale about an immortal and the downbeat “Canterbury’s Law” about a couple dealing with the abduction of their child by leading messy lives.

And the troubled comedy by “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, “The Return of Jezebel James,” gets a shot on the schedule in March following a sneak preview after “American Idol” on March 12.

“Encore” episodes – better known as repeats to you and me – of “Bones” and “House” return to the schedule as well.

Goodbye Girls

It’s official: The Gilmore Girls are no more.

Which means our beloved “Veronica Mars” probably won’t be around next season either, since “VM” consistantly falls below “GG” in the ratings.

FAREWELL TO THE GIRLS IN THE SERIES FINALE

In a joint statement from The CW and Warner Bros. Television, which produces the show, they write:

“Announcing the final season of ‘Gilmore Girls’ is truly a sad moment for everyone at The CW and Warner Bros. Television. This series helped define a network and created a fantastic, storybook world featuring some of television’s most memorable, lovable characters. We thank Amy Sherman-Palladino, Dan Palladino, Dave Rosenthal, the amazing cast led by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, as well as the producers, writers and crew for giving us this delightful gem for the past seven years. We would also like to thank the critics and ‘Gilmore’ fans for their passionate support and promise to give this series the send-off it deserves.”

The series finale airs at 8 p.m. May 15 on the CW. We’re betting Luke and Lorelai get back together and Rory moves to San Francisco with Logan (have you noticed all the L people in this show?).

Of course, Rory will get a job at the Oakland Tribune...OK, she’ll probably opt for that other Bay Area newspaper. But wouldn’t it be sweet?

Actually, judging by the photo for an upcoming episode, she’s going to work at CNN.
