Amir All Week, Folks! Try The Veal!

Amir Talai--who besides being in seemingly every commercial currently on tv played "Abdul" on the late, great, much-missed show Campus Ladies--posted this on his MySpace blog:
In case you didn't hear, Campus Ladies was cancelled last month by the Oxygen Network, essentially because our ratings weren't as good as they were for our first season. It's actually a miracle we made it as far as we did, what with Oxygen changing our time period during the first season, taking us off for a month and then bringing us back, and then putting our second season on at 11pm on Tuesday nights. We had a surprising number of fans given that Oxygen almost willfully sabotaged the show. But that too is in the past, and we will move on from that as well. Here too, I have made some friendships and connections that will last for a long time. And for fans of the show, you might be happy to know that Derek (Mr Drew) and I are actually very good friends in real life as well, and the cancellation of the show hasn't changed that. And BTW, Campus Ladies is definitely coming out on DVD, but I don't know when. I'll definitely LYK.
I'm pretty sure LYK is how the kids say "let you know" these days. Anyway, it's nice to hear that the show will be out on DVD, as there hasn't been a lot of information forthcoming from those beyotches at Oxygen. Also: MR. DREEEWWWWWWWWWW! Such a cutie! I'd be his cougar anyday...grrrr!

Amir mentions earlier in the post that Campus Ladies was an improv show, which a) I hadn't realized and b) makes everyone on it seem even more brilliant. Sob!

I miss Mr. Drew.

How can the ratings not be as good for the second season? Wasn't it better than the first?
