Its Fan Mourns Six Degrees

Starting November 30, Men in Trees is moving to Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC with a full-season order, according to Variety. The pairing with Grey's Anatomy makes sense ...

If Trees gets any viewership at all, James Tupper (Jack Slattery) will turn Patrick Dempsey's Dr. McDreamy from Grey's Anatomy into Dr. McCatnap. ... Should ratings become an issue, the obvious answer for Trees is a pairing with Grey's Anatomy - even if the latter is a rerun. In several ways, Trees is already the superior show - and given the backlash that almost seems inevitable for Grey's, ABC would be wise to expose any fans of Meredith and Derek to Marin and Jack. The latter two are a lot less annoying and look like they'll be more fun.
... but comes at the cost of Six Degrees.

Men is light but inoffensive, but I'm sad to lose Six. I don't know why I and so few others saw something there that most did not.

I liked "Six Degrees". Hope Davis seems to get bad series.

I saw the first two episodes of Six Degrees and didn't stay on. I did, however, see the last episode and was surprised to find that I enjoyed the episode and was looking forward to the next one. Even got online to watch recap of previous episodes. Alas, it's too late.

Reminds me very much of how Love Monkey got cancelled by CBS.

I watched the first two or three episodes of "Six Degrees", but abandoned it. I felt that Jon's description of it as "Lost" without the island was accurate, but that said accurate description was also a description of an uncompelling show. I also felt that the quality of the cast far out-paced the quality of the show. It's a shame; Campell Scott's one of my favorites.

I very much liked 6 degrees. Heroes was the only new show that I liked better. The acting on six degrees was superb.
