Well, unfortunately you’ve probably heard the news by now that Romantically Challenged was cancelled. I have to say I’m more than a little confused. Not only was it a very good show that was continuing to get better, but I personally slept with every exec at ABC to insure it would be renewed. Maybe I shouldn’t have wept or texted while copulating with each of them, but hey, hindsight is 20/20.
I get the feeling this decision was made a very long time ago, and that the passion of fans and actual viewers was totally ignored here. That’s never a wise thing to do. You’ll never know just how much me, Alyssa, and the rest of the cast and crew appreciated all your support, kind words, and the hard work you all did fighting for our show.
To repay all of you, we plan to travel to all your homes and act out a new episode each Monday. We ask only that you serve us submarine sandwiches and heroin, and we promise to clean up after ourselves before we leave.
Though I’m one of the least positive people on the planet, I’ve always felt things happen for a reason. And I’ll always be grateful for working with such an incredible cast and becoming “close friends” with Alyssa Milano. I put close friends in quotes cause the truth is, we’re having an affair. (It counts as an affair if a woman occasionally returns your calls, right?)
Alyssa finally got me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/rickyblitt) too, so that’s another good thing that came out of this. I look forward to corresponding with all of you some more and once again want to thank you so much for your incredible support and passion. That’s rare these days, and its unbelievably callous and arrogant for a network to just ignore that.
Tomorrow I will feel better, but tonight I plan to take off all my clothes and sleep in the dryer.
