Night Stalker cancelled

It’s not a big surprise but Night Stalker has been cancelled. It wasn’t a great show and it’s initial episode was so bad, it is a surprise that anyone watched at all. But it had been picking up and was almost bearable at times. I’d have watched it in preference to Invasion any day, yet Invasion has been picked up for a whole season.

This week’s episode will be replaced by Primetime Live. They could have waited, couldn’t they? It was a two-parter! Now how are we going to find out what happened? Buy the DVD?
