I always get a little excited when I hear some new TV network exec has dropped the axe on a host of lousy shows.

There were reports yesterday of a number of fatalities, including the unwatchable “Castle” and “Agent Carter.” “Supergirl” goes to CW where it can rejoice in the mediocrity of that networks other offerings (The Flash and Arrow). It probably won’t look as bad in that company. There were a other cancelations of shows whose names I can’t remember, they were so forgettable.

I get a little excited but it doesn’t last because before you know it the execs will be announcing the replacements for these shows, which are guaranteed to be as bad if not worse. The only cure is to pull the plug on TV. The vast wasteland of the sixties has become The Dismal Swamp of the 20-teens.
