Title: Lost 'Girls' 5.18.07

From Entertainment Weekly magazine:

After seven season, 'Gilmore Girls' signs off.

It's last call for coffee at Luke's Diner: On May 4, The CW announced that it's wrapping up the quip-smart Gilmore Girls with the May 15 finale. Though talks between the starring duo--Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel--and Warner Bros. Television, which produces the show, had been ongoing for months, all parties reportedly couldn't agree on issues such as scheduling. (A source says Bledel, for one, was "open to doing an abbreviated season"--possibly 13 episodes.) Creative concerns no doubt also play a role: In 2006, Gilmore suffured a blow when exec producer Amy Sherman-Palladino departed just as it moved from the WB to the CW, and total viewership has falled by nearly 20 percent since last season. "The end of Gilmore is not shocking news," says a show insider. "In fact, [the May 15] episode was conceived as a series--not season--finale right from the start."

Short, straightforward, and A BLOW TO THE HEAD!


Altho, mandaters, we can't let this hurt us. I know many of you are veiwing this as the end, and it could very well be, but everybody, just keep a glimpse of hope. Please! We can always mourn later.
