F**king seriously. Does anyone really think that the way to get ratings back up after a horrendously debauched season four with the writers strike (not that the season was bad) that we really need a vacation every 1.5 episodes? This is almost outrageous. It seems like someone needs to be fired for not doing their job or something. Perhaps that's why people are exiting the show or being written out because they screwed the production over, but as far as I can tell it's pure laziness on the part of ABC's family of douchebags.
