I Love Dick and One Mississippi Among 3 Shows Cancelled at Amazon

.....Amazon continues to clean house. On the heels of last month’s surprising pilot purge, the streamer has axed three series: I Love Dick, One Mississippi and Jean-Claude Van Johnson.

As our sister outlet Variety notes, Amazon is shifting away from its initial niche programming strategy and toward bigger, broader series.

One Mississippi, co-created by and starring Tig Notaro, was cancelled after two seasons.

Meanwhile, Jill Soloway’s I Love Dick starring Kevin Bacon and the Jean Claude Van Damme-fronted spoof Jean-Claude Van Johnson, were both whacked after just one season.



goodbye................?!

A show called "I Love Dick" is a little out-of-phase with the current cultural zeitgeist......

I've never seen any of them, and that's not due to any particular content; there just aren't enough hours in the day/week/month/year to keep up. Frankly I don't understand how so many of these shows (cable, broadcast and streaming) get enough viewers to be economically viable. Who has that kind of time?

I am constantly amazed at how much TV some people watch. My wife (who works full time) probably watches 4 hours of TV a day. Unless it's football season, I probably watch less than 4 hours a week. Same with movies. My to-do list on weekends is so long, I don't have time to do the whole movie thing.

Same, but for me it's well under 2 hours a week on average. I prefer movies though because you can typically watch it and then be done with it, unlike TV which are series of episodes that you have to keep up with. I remember getting stuck on LOST. Yeah that was great, all that time LOST.

There are tons of people with nothing better to do however, so all I can say is that we are not the target audience.

I remember:

Use to watch Bonanza and see it all wrapped up by the end. Next week might be a dramatic Bonanza or maybe a comedic Bonanza. Either way, Bonanza covered EVERY GENRE.

This time of year I need my treadmill diversion. Something an hour or less without commercials is a plus. I like Bosch and Longmire--cop procedurals--but I've pretty much exercised my way through them.

I watch Brit mysteries, almost seen them all at least once.

Down to watching SNL from the 70's, some funny some not.
