Star Trek: Enterprise Cancelled!

UPN and Paramount Network Television have jointly announced that this will be the final season of Star Trek: Enterprise on UPN. [Production will continue until the end of this season, which will finish shooting in March.] The series finale will air on Friday, May 13, 2005.

The biggest reason this program had low ratings is because it was on a new, small network that was not in a lot of markets. The only way I ever got to see Enterprise is because for the first 2 seasons my local WB station aired it after the WB network programming. For seasons 3 and 4 the episodes were/are taped and shown on the local NBC affiliate on Saturdays at midnight.

This is another ignorant, short-sighted move by network executives. If they would move production to syndication they would have a larger audience but they were trying to launch a new network that has, with the exception of Enterprise, crappy programs. Although having never seen any of them I can't really say that from experience but others have said so.

I just feel a little angry and a lot frustrated.
