Yesterday Starz announced that it was canceling Party Down and Gravity. I have never seen Gravity, but Party Down was one of my favorite shows on television. Although it took a few episodes to be sucked in, once you did, you could not live without it. Very smart writing and very, very dry comedy, it was brilliant. Critics loved it which means of course that no one watched it.
Part of the problem was that Jane Lynch left for Glee but was replaced by the amazing Megan Mullaly and then Adam Scott left for Parks & Recreation. Despite the defection of talent, the writing was still brilliant and it was filled with great guest stars every week. I hope the fact that it was canceled does not dissuade Paul Rudd from creating another show because he had a great idea and I hope he keeps them coming.
