Adios Laughlin

Well, despite Jeri's post on Viva Laughlin which made us all want to check out the show, CBS has given the boot to the series, effective immediately. Evidently the newest edition of The Amazing Race will premiere sooner than expected, taking VL's place, I believe not this coming week but in November.

Hey, maybe the show didn't work exactly, but you've gotta love and respect any kind of attempt to break out of the same old, same old on TV. And believe me, if the ultra-talented Hugh Jackman couldn't pull this one out of the fire, nobody could, I'm thinking.

At least we know the remaining episodes will turn up someplace for viewing; nothing much goes to waste these days.

Hey, they rolled the dice and crapped out. It happens.

I agree Lisa--try something new, get panned by the media and tank in the ratings and it's off you go as Simon Cowell often says to his contestants that cannot sing on that ever popular American Idol show. And so Viva L exited stage left and went out singing the blues. You takes your chances and roll the dice as they say in the gambling world and sorry to say the hand Viva L was dealt was just a house of cards that vanished in the wind.
But the Nose was there and the Nose knows. Whatever that means!
