What's the deal? Have they given up on the show, or changed the airing time?

I was wondering that too, but I think the show's (unfortunately) dying a slow and painful death on the Fox Family network. If an when they do show an episode, which seems to be on Saturdays now, there's no guarantee that it will be the next episode in the series or that it won't be heavily editied. Grrr.

The news section of this site has a little excerpt saying that
episodes 10 and 11 definitely won't be aired. What's up with
that? Why even bother showing it at all, I wonder? I really
have to question the logic of the network acquiring the rights to
MSCL, then basically bailing on it almost immediately. The implic-
ation is that they got the show without really knowing what it was
about, what was the content, etc. Then they found out that ---
surprise, surprise --- MSCL actually has dialogue about sex and
drugs! I vote the folks at the Fox Fam Channel the "Clueless of
the Year" award! If you're not going to commit behind a show,
what it's about, etc. --- don't buy it! (Duh -- squared!).
Let someone else air the show!

(Sorry, but this has got me realy ####'ed off.)

I totally agree!

I've been saying that since they edited The Pilot. I've been sending complaint letters to Fox Fam, and phone calls, too. Not that it's doing any good...

Was there an episode on last Sat. (April 15th)? There's no MSCL in my tv guide for this depressing.

tv guide and Fox Fam

Post by grim4746 » Apr 19th 2000, 12:03 am

I don't get Fox Family but I've read on another board that the tv guide is rarely right about MSCL. It might be on if tv guide says it isn't and if tv guide says it is on it probably isn't. Also they are usually wrong about what episode will be shown if they are right about it being on. I think this is Fox Family Channel's fault not tv guide but I'm not sure. If you want to watch (however butchered it might be) then you should just check the channel on Saturday rather than rely on tv guide.

This is the automated reply I got from Fox Family Channel:
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and comments with the Fox
Family Channel. We are always pleased to receive constructive feedback from our
viewers and will forward your comments to the appropriate department.

The Fox Family Channel airs MY SO-CALLED LIFE starring CLAIRE DANES as follows:
SAT 05:00pm
All times Eastern/Pacific
*Fox Family Channel will resume airing MY SO CALLED LIFE in June*

So at least they say it's still on, but in what form or which episodes,
it's unclear. No matter how many times I write and ask about reasoning
behind censoring episodes or other questions, they never really respond.
