Un-‘Pleasant’ turns of events at Fox

Pointpleasant_2At first, we thought we were just lazy. But now we realize why we don’t bother to have appointment television: Every show we’ve made a point of tuning in to, especially if it’s on Fox, gets canceled. First it was  Action, the brilliant send-up of the movie industry starring Jay Mohr, in 1999. The latest victim of our pleasure is Point Pleasant, a drama about impending Armageddon set—where else?—in New Jersey. The show was zapped from the Thursday night schedule in late March with nary a word and replaced by Tru Calling. But don’t take our word for how disappointing this is. If it weren’t for Web message boards, we’d be feeling soooooo alone right now.
