Since Greek is returning to ABC Family this coming Monday, January 25th, I felt it necessary to share this somewhat surprising/upsetting news.
In a recent "Ask Ausiello" column, Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello responds to a question about Greek being in danger of cancellation, and substantiates this rumor!
From the column:
Question: Is Greek really in danger of being canceled? -Lisa
Ausiello: I heard rumblings to that effect, but it wasn't until ABC Family basically renewed every single one of its scripted programs except Greek this week that the show's bubble status really hit me. I'm told ABC Family execs will be looking very closely at the ratings for the show's premiere on Jan. 25, so, please, tell everyone and your sister to watch it. Source
Honestly, it hadn't even occurred to me that Greek was considered 'on the bubble', but with breakout hits The Secret Life of The American Teenager and Make It or Break It, the show is clearly no longer the net's poster child.
While you could argue that Greek has actually arrived at a logical concluding point (Casey, Evan, Ashleigh and Cappie should be finishing up college soon enough...), I'd like to see the show survive just a little longer. It's only in its 3rd season!
What do you think? Would you be sad to see Greek go? Will you be watching the premiere this Monday?
