Does CBS realize canceling Moonlight was a mistake?

Today, Parade Magazine featured an inquiry sent in by a Moonlight fan asking if CBS knows what a blunder they made in canceling our show. We all knew the reasoning behind the network signing Alex O'Loughlin to a talent holding deal so quickly.

Personality Parade Cancelled TV Series

Question ~ Does CBS realize that canceling its vampire series Moonlight with Alex O’Loughlin was a mistake?— Sandy Bleiss, Bartlett, Tenn.

Answer ~ Yes. Our sources tell us that the outcry was so great that CBS took steps to bring O’Loughlin back into the fold. CBS Films cast him opposite Jennifer Lopez in The Back-Up Plan, and this fall he’ll star as a doctor in a new medical series, Three Rivers. Is there a cancelled TV series you’d like to see revived?

Hi Candygirl! First of all, a belated happy birthday! Mine was last week and what was my favorite gift? Moonlight Season 1 DVD's! YEA!!! I haven't visited here in a while but re-watching inspired me to check in. I see you're still going strong. I didn't even know about Alex's new movie so that is great news, but on the other hand, I hate medical shows.... Obviously, I'll have to give it a try with Alex in it.

I'll check back soon. Best to you,

Haven't visited your site in quite a while but, then again, MOONLIGHT doesn't exist anymore and that's what I was hooked on....I STILL don't understand- Parade Magazine says the crap broadcasting system realized they made a mistake by canceling MOONLIGHT-the outcry was so great, blah,blah, there a time delay of some sort at cbs? We fans were ALWAYS telling them how nuts we were about the show- through email, letters, polls.....what a bunch of idiots. Also, I liked MOONLIGHT- I could care less about another doctor show AND I would never watch another new show on cbs........
