Goodbye, Mythbusters

It was one of two shows on the Discovery Channel worth watching (for me), the other being Dirty Jobs... until it got cancelled. I was a little sad about that for a while... until I recently found out about Somebody's Gotta Do It on CNN, so yay!

But I digress. 

I suppose it was a matter of time when the show went back to its Adam-and-Jamie-only roots (how many people remembered those days?) and with its irregular scheduling, etc (seriously, when is it actually on?). 12, 13 years is a pretty long time for a show like this (even if you take into account what they say about Adam and Jamie's off-screen relationship). 

It might have been a surprise to fans like myself who just found out, but since they (the show) already knew of this beforehand, I presume that they already have a way to bow out in a manner befitting the show. 

I am curious to see how they end this.

Goodbye, Mythbusters - you will be missed by this fan.

America's Next Top Model finally getting cut

After 22 seasons/cycles, ANTM is (finally) getting cancelled/not renewed. Like most people, I thought it would go on forever... much like SVU at this point :P

Personally, I'm not that sorry to see it go as I think it's run its course some time ago (since they let the Internet trolls... er, fans factor in during judging). But I still am gonna watch it to the bitter end. 

There's only a handful of shows from the 2000s that are still on in 2015, like Survivor and The Amazing Race.

I suppose if this means I never have to be subjected to Tyra's crazy ideas for her brand like the "Pot Ledom" nonsense (thankfully, the last time I'll ever have to type that), and her most recent Avon/Mary Kay/MLM-esque cosmetics line which I'm not gonna repeat the name of because I already forgot.

As much as I wouldn't mind it if hearing-impaired Nyle wins this cycle, but I don't feel the winner's edit with him so much?
