Nobody Wants Nine Seasons of <I>Desperate Housewives</I>! Or maybe they do, I don't know. I know that I personally don't. Nevertheless, Marc Cherry is in talks with ABC to extend the show an extra two seasons past the previously planned seven, meaning Desperate Housewives will be on for nine seasons, or as I like to refer to it, for effing everrrrrr. And ABC is into it, of course, because they are great fans of making money. "I started recently talks with (ABC Entertainment president) Steve McPherson and (ABC Studios chief) Mark Pedowitz about continuing the show for a ninth season," Cherry said. "We're going to find a way to make it work."

I love that. I love that this mind-numbingly mediocre show has the ABC brass just thinking, "Yayyyy the five-year jump ahead wasn't too terrible! Therefore, we should keep it on forever!" That's some awesome logic! Of course, they are enthusiastic about it because the show continues to do gangbusters, ratings-wise, so obviously I'm in the minority. And bitter, because every show I like gets canceled. Personally, I'm sick of the show and would rather see Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross re-purposed for better series, and I'm sure they will, some day. It's just going to take an extra two years now.

And now I turn it over to you fine people: Do you want to spend another four years with the Housewives or what? Sound off below! Fight! Fight!
