If we don't get an 8th season, I would settle for this.  Especially if AS-P wrote and directed it.

As of 12:30 Central, the comment line is still open.  I told them that I was very insulted by D.O.'s comments about their viewers.  I told them that when the networks merged, I (as well as thousands of other viewers) were really hoping that they would keep their programs to a higher standard-which they have not.  I also said that in addition to losing Gilmore Girls, we now have to be insulted by D.O.'s comments! Huh Angry

5  Gilmore Girls / Show and Cast Member News / Finale Ratings-according to Media Life on: May 16, 2007, 12:42:46 pm
A first: Fox's 'House'
outpulls hit 'Idol'

Medical drama averages a 9.2 rating in adults 18-49s

By Toni Fitzgerald
May 16, 2007

For the first time ever, “House” topped its “American Idol” lead-in last night, by the thinnest of margins. It was the first time any “Idol” lead-out has ever built on the reality singing competition, and it comes after weeks of declining ratings for “Idol.”

“House” averaged a 9.2 rating among adults 18-49 last night, according to Nielsen overnights, 0.3 ahead of “Idol.”

Those represent early numbers based on timeslot and not program data, and it’s possible that “House” could fall back a bit, as “Idol” usually runs a few minutes past its 9 p.m. end time.

But it comes a week after “House” scored the highest retention ever out of “Idol,” 96 percent. And “House” actually rose a bit in its second half hour, from a 9.1 to a 9.3, suggesting that its rating may hold for final numbers.

While it’s a promising sign for “House,” it’s not so promising for “Idol,” which lost more than a million viewers compared with the previous week and averaged a season-low 23 million last night heading into next week’s season finale. The show also tied last week’s season-low 8.9 18-49 rating, though that did rise when final ratings were released.

Also last night, the series finale of “Gilmore Girls” on the CW drew a very solid audience. Roughly 4.75 million total viewers tuned in, 1 million more than its season average and 750,000 more than watched last week’s penultimate episode. That was the show’s best viewership since December.

The show also jumped among 18-49s and 18-34s, placing second in the timeslot in each behind Fox’s “Idol.” “Girls” had its best 18-34s rating this season, a 2.8, and best since January 2006 overall.

Fox was first last night among 18-49s with a 9.1 average rating and a 24 share. ABC followed at 3.2/9, with CBS third at 2.7/7, NBC fourth at 2.6/7, Univision fifth at 1.9/5 and CW sixth at 1.6/4.
At 8 p.m. Fox led with an 8.9 rating for “American Idol,” followed by CW with a 2.2 for “Gilmore Girls.” CBS and ABC tied for third that hour at 2.1, CBS for the first of three hours of “The Academy of Country Music Awards” and ABC for a repeat of “Dancing with the Stars,” with Univision fifth with a 1.9 for “La Fea Mas Bella” and NBC sixth with a 1.5 for “Dateline.”
Fox led again at 9 p.m., this time with a 9.2 for “House,” with ABC moving to second with a 4.7 for its “Dancing with the Stars” results show. CBS was third with a 2.8 for the second hour of the CMAs, while NBC and Univision tied for fourth at 2.2, NBC for a repeat of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and Univision for “Destilando Amor.” CW slipped to sixth that hour with a 1.0 for “Veronica Mars.”
NBC led at 10 p.m. with a 4.3 for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” CBS was second with a 3.2 for the final hour of the CMAs, ABC third with a 2.8 for “Boston Legal” and Univision fourth with a 1.7 for “Nuestra Belleza Latina.”
Among households, Fox led the night with a 13.2 average rating and a 21 share. ABC was second at 8.4/13, CBS third at 6.1/10, NBC fourth at 5.8/9, Univision fifth at 2.4/4 and CW sixth at 2.2/3.

The cast sounds very upset (almost bitter) about the abrupt ending.  If they (we) are able to bring it back, I think they would be on board.

Wonderful tribute to Scott and Lauren/ Luke and Lorelai.

If you have any doubts about the chemistry between Scott and Lauren, this should take care of it...

Maybe this should be on an appreciation thread, but I wanted to share.

I believe that it was a little bit of both, as well.  However, my question is if Lauren and Alexis just wanted out and were firm on not doing the show anymore, then why start "the talks" in the first place?  They just simply would have not resigned.  Why was Lauren surprised that the network threw in the towel?  It was obvious on Ellen, that she was still a little bit in shock.  There is something not being said, and I don't know if we ever will know what really happened. 

I believe both sides should have tried a little harder.  With only 13 epis, they could have stretched it out.  Maybe a new epi every other week to stretch out filming.  Sounds lame, but there are ways of working these things out.

Gilmore Girls Cancellation Speculations
By Arieanna

There are a lot of speculations about how Gilmore Girls ultimately came to be cancelled.

It was not a surprise to Alexis Bledel or Lauren Graham, both of whom felt it was time to move on. Each felt the production schedule to be too demanding, and the plot satisfactorily tied up at the end of the season.

However, if you listen to Lauren Graham’s Ellen interview, it did sound like the ultimate decision was not hers.

The network had negotiated for Gilmore Girls to return for a shortened Season 8 - just 13 episodes. Along with a hefty pay hike, things seemed all ready to go. But, in the end, they broke apart. Here are some speculations as to why:

The girls had agreed to a 13 week season with a very generous pay increase. All that was needed was the signatures. Then, after the contacts had been drawn up and approved by everyone’s legal team, the girls came back and told the network that they wanted to change the number of episodes down to 8. That was the deal breaker. It wasn’t worth it to the network. - SassyPaws at twop

In the end, perhaps time was simply against us. The negotiations were prolonged and I personally think everyone just gave up. And it does sound like Lauren Graham was sad about it:

Apparently the girls were under the impression that the advertisers had threatened the CW with withdrawing all network ad money if they did not deliver Gilmore’s coveted females teen audience. That led the girls to believe that they had the backing of the advertisers and could force the network do anything they wanted. They greatly miscalculated since apparently the advertisers are really pleased with the crop of new pilots and, though they like GG, they aren’t that concern with its demise.

Despite the public persona that has been presented by Lauren, according to my sources, she was totally shocked when the network ended negotiations and is not happy at all with the fallout that is rippling through Hollywood. - SassyPaws at twop

I really do understand how Lauren and Alexis could get tired. It was not just the number of episodes, but how long it took to film each one. Such extremely long days, back to back. I think the negotiations should have revolved around spreading that out, personally.

After reading this, I believe even more that the network can make this happen!

Wow, this has to have been one of the hardest nights in my house EVER.  My little girl is devastated.  However, I can't help but thank all of the cast of Gilmore Girls, because they made such an amazing show.  I have watched every episode to date with my daughter.  She was only 19 months old when the pilot aired.  I have been hooked since.  And, every Tuesday night, my daughter and I have watched Lorelai and Rory, and felt like we were part of a wonderful world in Stars Hollow, CT.  There have been ups, downs, sideways, and backwards every week.  Lauren Graham played Lorelai with a lot of class and for someone who isn't a single mother, she played her role to perfection. There are lots of hats to wear, and usually, most single mom's are "Livin' on a prayer, baby."  i would love to be able to tell her how much it meant for me, as a single mother, to see a single mother on the tv that was actually someone like me.  And for Alexis Bledel, I stand in heartfelt tribute, with humility and a great deal of thanks, for giving my daughter a hero on TV that makes me feel proud to be a Mom.  My daughter wants to be just llike Rory, smart, funny, determined, a bookaholic, and a Yale graduate.  Granted, the thought of the tution bill is terrifying because there aren't any Richard and Emily's in our family.  Most people don't have them (at least not the income) but then again, we all do have them.  Its a real family, nothing hidden.  That  is something to be proud of.  This show should make all of the cast proud.

I loved reading this.  I think that the character of Rory was so wonderfully created to be a role model for girls. 
It was great to see a teenage character written as a smart, funny, beautiful, bookworm instead of a snotty teenager.  I think it is great that your daughter wants to be like Rory instead of Britney Spears or some other airhead.  Sounds like you are a great mom and the two of you have a close relationship. 
Gilmore Girls is one of those rare shows that you can watch with your kids and both enjoy it.  I will really miss it.

I got the impression from Lauren's interviews (Ellen, TV Guide, etc) that there was a way to get them to stay and the network couldn't make it happen.  If she were definatly out (as well as Alexis), then there would have been no negotiations in the first place.  I think it is very possible to convince the network to do something more than they have.  They gave up too early with ASP and they just did the same with the actors.  Anything is possible.  
12  Gilmore Girls / Show and Cast Member News / Re: It's Here: Lauren Graham's Final Gilmore Girls Interview - 05.06.07 on: May 07, 2007, 08:23:31 pm
I'm really gonna miss those girls.. and I'm soo happy that for the final shot they are going to repeat something from the Pilot.. but I really wished they would have done the shot in the beginning of the pilot... you know the look of the town.. her begging for coffee.. rory coming in and getting hit on by a guy..

I think that is what they did, or tried to.
13  Gilmore Girls / Show and Cast Member News / Re: It's Here: Lauren Graham's Final Gilmore Girls Interview - 05.06.07 on: May 07, 2007, 08:16:23 pm
Wow, this really answered a lot of questions.  I hope he does an interview with ASP soon after the finale.  I really want to know how she would have done it and what the last four words would have been.  I am glad they tried to mimic the opening scene from the pilot.  That is how it should end.
14  Gilmore Girls / Spoilers / Re: Ending Question... on: May 04, 2007, 05:00:40 am
I'm wondering if they would have used it if they shot the finale not knowing if it was for the series or season...

It could be that the last seen is actually a flashback.  Then it would obviously already have been shot.

I want to know if they will be using ASP's "last four words".  I wouldn't be surprised if she was interviewed about this pretty soon.  If anyone finds anything, please post it.
15  Gilmore Girls / Show and Cast Member News / Re: No Season 8 on: May 03, 2007, 02:33:30 pm
Is there any chance of an 11th hour change?

It would seriously have to be an amazing episode for me to feel like they gave it the ending that it deserves.  If they didn't know that it was going to be the series finale, did they use the famous "last four words"?  Does anyone besides ASP even know what they are?  Will we ever know? 
This really sucks.  I would hate to see this show end with anything less than brilliance.
