TV Guide ~ Moonlight Still "Exploring Options"

Moonlight on TV Guide's website again! Alex O'Loughlin has been in every issue of the magazine for the last... what?... 3 or 4 weeks. And, our show has been mentioned in several columns on the web page just since Monday. YEA!

This time, it is Matt Webb Mitovich's turn. We already heard the news about MRC not being our new home. I still think they are crazy, of course. Notice tho that Kevin Samples says "It just didn't seem in the end that it was the right thing to do at this moment in time" and then admits they will evolve in the future cuz "We're going down a new path here." Perhaps, they will see the error of their way after dealing with show ratings that don't compare to Moonlight's.

The great thing is, Matt confirms that the WB is still looking for ways to give us more Moonlight :)

CW Didn't Bite, But Moonlight Still "Exploring Options"

Moonlight fans hoping to see Alex O'Loughlin and his vampire-drama buddies resurrected by the CW had their dreams squashed when Media Rights Capital officially released the Sunday line-up it had developed for the fifth network. Addressing the decision to pass up the opportunity to pick up the cult hit and its eight million viewers, MRC TV president Keith Samples explains to Variety, "It just didn't seem in the end that it was the right thing to do at this moment in time.

"We're going down a new path here, I'll be the first to admit," Samples adds. "Things will come up on this road we didn't foresee, and we will evolve."

That said, sources tell that Warner Bros. TV still is "exploring other options," though it is unclear if that relates to hosting existing episodes of Moonlight or delivering new ones. — MWM
