    owtime and axed the brilliant Huff and Dead Like Me way too soon... and they weren't even performing badly.. CBS just wanted to "make their mark".

        s.  HBO pulled the plug quickly on John From Cincinnati(which I adored the concept of, although not all of the execution)... because that's what pay cable does now.  CBS made SHO more competitive, so HBO won't leave a mediocre performer on, looking at total views.

        Also Starz is now a player with Spartacus.  Look for pay cable shows to get more graphic, raunchy and edgy.

        See True Blood, Dexter, S:Gods of the Arena and Shameless.

        Shameless is one of the biggest performers on cable.  It has insane staying power.  More people watched the 3rd ep than 1st.
