Gilmore Girls Goes Bye-Bye: Smart, Hip Mother-Daughter Teams Everywhere In Mourning
The CW released this statement confirming an early report by TMZ.com; that the classic mother/daughter dramedy Gilmore Girls is toast -- victim of an inability to cut a deal among the principals to continue the show into its eighth season.
But what will the nation's legions of way cool, too sexy mother-daughter teams do now for inspiration?
The CW's lame-o press release follows:
"Announcing the final season of 'Gilmore Girls' is truly a sad moment for everyone at The CW and Warner Bros. Television. This series helped define a network and created a fantastic, storybook world featuring some of television's most memorable, lovable characters. We thank Amy Sherman-Palladino, Dan Palladino, Dave Rosenthal, the amazing cast led by Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, as well as the producers, writers and crew for giving us this delightful gem for the past seven years. We would also like to thank the critics and 'Gilmore' fans for their passionate support and promise to give this series the send-off it deserves."
GILMORE GIRLS finale airs Tuesday May 15 on The CW at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
NYT Names New Public Editor
Former Lakeland Ledger and Miami Herald reporter Clark Hoyt was named the New York Times' new public editor today, taking over for Barney Calame. some, including my pal Wayne Garcia over at the Political Whore, claimed Calame's prose was a little, um, nap-inducing.
Hoyt, whose last gig was running the Knight-Ridder Washington Bureau that failed to fall for the administration's truthiness in the run up to the Iraq war (of course, the recent sale of the newspaper chain last year left him jobless), presumably will offer steelier product.
