Subject: Feedback for JAG

So I just learned the real reason JAG was cancelled was not because of ratings, not because of the lack of field cases or AJ's departure, not because of the increased shipper focus. They cancelled it because they believed the series was only catering to the older generation.

So I sent this to CBS' feedback form.

I'd have sent this sooner if I'd realized. I heard the reason you cancelled JAG was because you believed it only catered to the older generation.

Just so you know - I'm 23. I've watched the series since I was 14. I have participated in a discussion group where the majority were all under forty. These are the die-hard fans - the ones who will be buying the DVDs from you and who honestly care about the show, unlike the casual viewer who just tunes in when it's convenient.

I'm not sure where exactly you took your sampling from, but in the future you might want to use internet groups as your main survey group. Because a lot of us will be heading back to college or school on Monday, knowing our favorite show is at an end.



I don't expect them to bring it back - but at least this might keep another show from going the same way.

[> the problem is that they can't rely entirely on internet groups - because we're not statistically a sample population - anyway, theres a lot of details I don't understand in all that - but - I blame them moving it to Friday nights - thats what really did it in for me - I might have kept watching out of habit otherwise, but moving it to friday nights, it had better be really really good for me to watch, and when it wasn't, I stopped watching... -- Aria, 23:06:21 04/29/05 Fri

[> [> And most logically, if they want the younger audience, why on EARTH move it to a night that they're not home to watch it? When I was a teenager and in my early-mid twenties, I was NEVER home, but especially not on Friday or Saturday nights. -- Katherine, 23:09:31 04/29/05 Fri

I hope for your sake the latter... (I started posting here during my first year of college in 2000 too - well I think it was december of that year - not positive - might have been Jan 2001, lol - but anyway - I'm finally graduating (grad school) in December =) so I know the feeling... -- Aria, 12:17:47 04/30/05 Sat

[> [> [> Not to mention how inconvenient it was to post on Saturdays. LOL! I've stuck w/the show, but stopped posting part-way through season 9 because by the time I had time to post, it was too far past the episode. -- Katherine, 23:13:05 04/29/05 Fri

[> Started watching at 16 and followed it through the Friday move. I also stayed home on Fridays to watch X-Files, so I don't know why they don't think young people don't watch... -- JenScully, 23:50:07 05/01/05 Sun

[> [> Sure there are young people watching Jag but they're still not a large crowd.Its really even rare talking to young people about Jag off-line and most people I met are really older people. Another fact is that even casual viewers are not so glued to the show but Harm and Mac hook up is always the obvious question.LOL! -- Shine, 00:09:22 05/02/05 Mon

[> My hubby and I (20's) were avid watchers, but after the 2003 episodes my little shipper heart ot tired of ebing jerked around! With that and the change to Friday, I rarely watched in the last 2 years - Can't stand Yuck either!! Have enjoyed the last few and the series finale!! -- Sarah, 11:02:04 05/02/05 Mon
