    How True Is Cable TV's Dual-Revenue Stream Argument These Days?

    Fox Television Studios, producer of "Saving Grace," would tell you a different story -- that while "Saving Grace" scored well domestically, there were other issues: weak DVD sales, and little interest in the all-important overseas markets.

    TNT wants "Grace" to come back. So far, Fox hasn't complained that a low license fee is another possible reason for the show's
    just-announced cancellation.

    :mad: Well that just plain sucks!! I really like this show. But at least they will get to write an ending to the series.

    I think that the problem with Saving Grace was also the cost side of the equation.

    I must be considered overseas, because I never watch it. ;)

    I have enjoyed the program. A Skoal dipping angel with a spit bottle. What's not to like? :lol:
    And The last 30 seconds or so of this weeks episode had me thinking it was canceled this season. When Grace and Neely were in mid-flight I thought 'damn, this can't be good'. I mean even Earl had a worried look on his face.

    One of my favorite shows... As stated, at least they should be able to wrap it up somewhat...

    Love the show. But I have no problems with "Series will end its run after nine episodes scheduled for next summer." And I respect this statement by Fox Television Studios: "We thought an appropriate ending after three extremely successful seasons was the best outcome for all parties involved.”

    It is a peculiarly American show. And it has a peculiarly limited appeal. That they are wrapping it up this way deserves favorable consideration.

    But I will miss it two summers from now if TNT doesn't replace it with something cool.
