So Everwood is cancelled. Over. Done. Why can’t I get over it? I’ve loved and lost shows before (Angel? Arrested Development? Sadly, the list goes on and on… and on), so why does this one feel so Paris Hilton’s Music Video Bad? Things were looking bad from the start when The WB decided to move Everwood to the death slot that not even Donald Trump’s hair could survive for too long: Thursdays at 9 PM. The stench of cancellation lingered as the show went off the air for a three month hiatus and reached its zenith of UH OH when the WB and UPN announced their merger this past winter. But then things started to perk up: 7th Heaven was being put out to pasture after it had converted millions to its non-denominational cult; Chad Michael Murray had already married every single girl on One Tree Hill, and thus it seemed that people had started losing interest in the show; the pilots for the new CW came back without much reverie. Pretty soon it was easy to imagine hanging out in Everwood for another few seasons at least. The CW even made the decision to bring back Veronica Mars, a show with even worse ratings than Everwood. And then BAM! E! Online and USA Today held Save One Show polls that rallied for One Tree Hill, and seven million people tuned in to watch the Camdens have a bunch of twin devil babies on 7th Heaven, and all of a sudden the new CW president Dawn Ostroff was saying how sorry she was to have to let Everwood go. So now it’s over. Sets have been torn down. Writers are being welcomed to new television families (one to What About Brian, another to Gilmore Girls). The denizens of Everwood have gone to the sweet television hereafter, and all we’re left with are the memories. This is a show had moments of HOLY SHIT, that rivaled anything else on television (OH MY GOD! THEY KILLED COLIN! YOU BASTARDS!) and was consistently well-acted (Emily Van Camp – CALL ME) and well written. So I’m going to miss it. To quote my good buddy, Dr. Jake: “I’ll miss you Ephram Brown, and your sullen ways.”
