The Cancellations Will Continue Until Morale Improves

Another one bites the dust, though this is actually good news: The West Wing will end this spring.  Totally predictable, given how they've stretched Martin Sheen's last year in office across two seasons of television.  Now the election that never ends will finally go away, and we won't have the winner wiping himself all over TWW's legacy.  They'll make Santos win, but at least nobody will have to watch him or his annoying wife anymore.  But this is good news, as any attempt to maintain the old cast would have been ridiculous, and any attempt to reload would have caused mass abandonment of the show.  It's not like ER, where people love the format and the adrenaline... the characters are why people still stick with such a subpar product.  It's a catch-22.  Anyway, rest in peace, and I'll gladly get my Sunday nights back.
