"West Wing" a Lame Duck

NBC announced Sunday that the long running program "The West Wing" will be cancelled after the conclusion of it's current season.

The 7th season has received critical praise, but it's move from Wednesday to Sunday was followed by lackluster ratings. The cancellation of "West Wing" is part of a larger strategy by NBC to revive their lagging lineup. Some conservatives will be happy to see the show go as it was long accused of sporting a liberal bias. I wasn't a regular viewer, but the show (which focused on a Democratic administration) seemed reasonably fair to Republicans.

The show's final episodes will focus on the presidential race to replace outgoing president Martin Sheen. Since the writers of the show no longer have to worry about continuing the series with a new lead, perhaps the presidential race pitting Democrat Matt Santos (Jimmy Smits) vs Republican Arnie Vinick (R-Alan Alda) will see more fireworks than previously planned.

Though I wasn't an avid watcher of "The West Wing", as a person who enjoys politics I'm sad to see the show go.

I am personally very disappointed that we will not have an opportunity to see what a Santos presidency would be like. Watching this fictionalized version of life in the White House was a lot better than watching our current White House spread fiction and call it the truth.

I doubt that it will be gone after it leaves NBC. A&E or another cable network will probably pick it up. Maybe CMT, the savior of the Miss America pageant.

I don't know, first poster. Sometimes reality can be much more entertaining than fiction.

West Wing re-reruns have been playing on Bravo for a couple years now, and even have West Wing Marathon Mondays (yes, I'm a very dedicated fan). I hate to see the show go, but since Aaron Sorkin left after the 4th season the show hasn't been the same.
