West Wing: Lame Show, Lame Duck
In case the plummeting ratings didn’t make the announcement a foregone conclusion, NBC has officially come out and cancelled The West Wing.
I imagine few will really be upset by this- since drugged-out creator Aaron Sorkin’s departure, the show, by most fans accounts, barely resembled the drama that originally was a huge hit.
Myself, I could never get past the Sorkin-speak. If it wasn’t for that, I could probably have overlooked the show’s thinly veiled political agenda.
