ANCHOR'S AWAY


"What do you mean I'm cancelled?"

The news came quickly, decisively and without any sugar coating. Alas, there is now one less fox on Fox. Damn that Mr. Neilsen.

Yes, ANCHORWOMAN's poor ratings have led to cancellation after only one night's airing. While the numbers were admittedly bad, they were no worse than those for ON THE POT -- oops, I meant ON THE LOT -- which lasted an entire season and had less merit than a defrocked boy scout. Then again, ON THE LOT had Steven Spielberg as Executive Producer and giving the ax to anything Sir Steven is associated with is akin to another Holocaust.

Ironically, Phil Hurley, the station owner for KYTX in Tyler, noted that their ratings "doubled" during the thirty days that Lauren Jones anchored the 5:00 p.m. newscast. And so, as a parting tribute, Needtovent will post one last photo of Miss Jones as our way of saying "goodbye and good luck."

Is there any wonder why the ratings "doubled?"
