You may remember my love for a certain stupid show called Wife Swap. Well, I fear that ABC is trying to send it the way of Trading Spouses; that is, they’re trying to kill it. It’s ratings were only in the 6.5-7.0 range this season and next season, they’re moving it to the death slot: Friday at 8pm. It’s been done to Freaks and Geeks, it’s been done to Undeclared and now, Wife Swap.
(Though that was written sarcastically, it still pains me to even kiddingly mention F&G and Undeclared in the same sentence as Wife Swap.)
I guess after their fifth season, they figure they’ll running out of ways to do the messy vegetarian liberal hippie artists swapping with the Republican Christian homeschooling hunters theme.
