A great Aussie fan wrote to TV Guide's Matt Roush to ask his opinion about Moonlight being renewed for a 2nd season. Like us, he thinks CBS realizes what an opportunity they have on their hands.... "especially this star Alex O'Loughlin." Amen!
I was really bored, so I decided to finally give Moonlight a try. I was instantly hooked and watched all 12 episodes in one day. I love the fact that, unlike Angel, this show is sticking with vampires as the only "unnatural" element and everything else is relatively normal. Do you have any scoop or news on a Season 2 pickup? — Allie, Australia
Matt Roush :
I think it's safe to say that the performance of Moonlight when it returns with new episodes on April 25 will have a direct bearing on CBS's decision to renew it, which may not be made official until the network upfront on May 14. I'm more concerned with all of the backstage disarray, with producers coming and going behind the scenes. If CBS has any worries about its creative direction, that could be even more problematic than its Friday night ratings. I don't know why I'm so upbeat on this show's chances — it's not like I'm a superfan — but I find it hard to believe that CBS doesn't know what a cult sensation it's sitting on with this show and especially with this star (Alex O'Loughlin).
