Attention Stoners!

Now that I’ve got your attention… [cue maniacal laugh] this TV Addict wanted to take a moment to tell all you Stoners, yes, I’m talking to you, ELI STONE fans that in an effort to attract more eyeballs to the criminally under-watched and current TV Addict favorite, ABC will be airing a very special episode of ELI STONE following Sunday’s highly anticipated return of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. In other words, if ELI STONE doesn’t get picked up for a much deserved second season, it certainly won’t be due to a lack of effort on ABC’s part.

And on a somewhat related note, who’s in charge of the marketing for ABC? Would not “Get Stoned!” have been the coolest, albeit somewhat morally ambiguous marketing slogan for ELI STONE? Seriously? Why is the TV Addict not on someone’s payroll!

    I like this show more and more each week. I hope it gets renewed.

    Still upset about Journeyman not making it :(

    I haven’t watched it. Not really into the kitschy lawyer thing (I never liked Ally McBeal). But I want to give ABC promo dept a cheer for working hard for their shows unlike another network ::cough::fox::cough::

    I really like this show as well. However, they are giving away WAY too much info about “the future” – which leads me to believe the writers have been told to wrap things up… I hope not, but it is ABC after all. The same ABC that canceled Journeyman and Daybreak.

    As far as the so-called “special time” – I have to say that I don’t get it. Why not put Eli Stone’s final two episodes of this season after new episodes of Lost or Ugly Betty? Something with an audience?

    But Sunday night? After Desperate Housewives? Do they really think the demographics are the same, or is it just an open slot the executives are trying to fill?
