CBS made a major mistake in cancelling Moonlight a show unlike anything else on TV in a very long time. The show had everything - I don't need to repeat what everyone else has said. What I don't get right now is why aren't all the other networks, cable channels, etc. not realizing that CBS let a true gem get away and trying to grab it for themselves? CBS made a mistake, but now that vamps are truly in, the others are just as foolish. Wise up people! You won't get a fan base as devoted and interested in doing good deeds and rewarding Moonlight's advertisers as we are.

I am an old lady (although I like to think not a typical one), and I loved Moonlight! Mick St John has set the bar very high for past and future vampires. What a guy! What was CBS thinking? I never watched CBS to begin with, so now I have no reason to watch...I mean really, Horatio Cane??? I predict none of the new vamps will hold a candle to our Mick, and that includes Mr Cullen!

Moonlight was a great show! CBS is known for being a network for old ladies anyways, so it makes sense they would cancel a show with a younger viewing audience. This is the reason why I don't watch CBS. They are never on the mark with a younger people. And maybe if it wasn't on FRIDAY night at 9pm it would have had better ratings. I personally had to watch it online because I was never home to catch the original airing. CBS is lame.

CBS=Dumb@$$ in terms of intelligence for canceling Moonlight. This was one of the rare shows that I actually did arrange my schedule around. If an event was unavoidable and I knew that I was going to miss watching the episode, I made sure that there was a tape ready to tape every delicious moment of the show. CBS, you are a bunch of stubborn-as-bulls, high-horse, penny-pinching, hard@$$es, that couldn't see a hit right in front of your faces even if it came up and bit you. You'll be feeling the sting of those of us who watched this intriguing show when the ever-present sweeps weeks come around, and you network will be left in the dust like the tumbleweeds that roll around through the desert sands and are subject to the winds of the desert's fury. CBS is going down like the Titanic, in terms of networks. It will join the rest of the world's failures if it doesn't wise up and try and either get Moonlight back on, or let another network pick it up. CBS will join such failures as the Titanic, the Hindenburg, and all other things through out history that went bust, because there was no proper planning or publicization of the show. I didn't even know about it until my Uncle, from Ohio, told me about it. Got hooked on that show and am still pissed that CBS fell of the bandwagon with canceling it. Their network has fallen so far down that, figuratively speaking, it's lower than the Marianis Trench (the deepest trench in the farthest reaches of the ocean, for those that don't watch nature shows.).

Yes, CBS definitely missed the boat on this! I have boycotted CBS since they made the stupid, shortsighted decision to cancel Moonlight. I was watching Ghost Whisperer and Numbers only because Moonlight was sandwiched between them. I love David Letterman, but no longer can stomach turning CBS on even for him. Moonlight won the People's Choice Award for Best New Drama with 10 million votes! The ratings held steady even after the writer's strike, no repeats airing, and not much advertising/promotion by CBS. Some people say vampire stories are sick-you know, to me what's sick is all the CSI's and Criminal Minds. I would much rather watch a vampire trying to do good and romance a human that watch some torture scene on Criminal Minds and dead bodies of every stage of decomposition on all the CSI's. So, I am happy that vampires are making a comeback, via books, movies, and HBO'S Tru Blood. I will get HBO by Sept. just so I can see Tru Blood. So there. That's me putting my MONEY where my mouth is! Too bad for CBS because they were ahead of everybody else-had the only vampire show on the air-and they blew it!

If CBS would have picked up Moonlight for a second season, as was expected, the ratings for Fall 2008 and beyond would have made it one of the most watched shows on their channel, for sure. The vampire hype this fall would have guaranteed increased viewership. CBS totally blew it, now its time for another, smarter network to see the vast potential this show has and pick it up!!!

CBS certainly did miss the boat on the vampire craze. Actually the "vampire" genre never went away. It has been a popular subject since Bram Stoker's original "Dracula", and has never really gone away. CBS is so stuck in an old mind-set they never could see that. They not only had a hot genre show, they also had one of the best shows on TV in any genre. So what did they do? They threw it away for the same old trash that is on any other venue. CBS, wake up. Admit you've made a mistake and bring Moonlight back. The fans will come back in droves. Unless you really want to be the network nobody watches, that is.

CBS Make a HUGE MISTAKE cancelling Moonlight! Tell me how do you cancel a show that has won its time slot (even with the strike), won the Peoples Choice Awards, has GREAT writers & actors, has 8 million viewers & rising & to top it off the has the Sexiest Lead Actors on TV? Hopefully another station will benefit from their mistake. I'm still fighting for the cause. Donna
