Programming Notes

Showtime’s Weeds will end after next season.

CNN canceled John King USA, and the show will leave the airwaves on June 29. A THIRD(?!!) hour of Wolf Blitzer’s Situation Room will take its 6pm weekday slot on July 2.

The Stanley Cup Finals averaged 3 million viewers in America; last year’s Final averaged 4.5 million. Ratings for the other playoff rounds were up significantly.

A dingo DID eat her baby.

Excuse of the Day

The viewer drop-off on “Talent” was clearly because of competition from the NBA Finals game and a mediocre lead-in of “American Ninja Warrior” (1.6/5, 4.9m).
