Then we are very likely looking at the last year of this program. Unless...

I don't think the ratings are that accurate, in term of the show's worth to
the network. I've heard TP has "good demographics", that, although it
consistently loses the ratings war overall, it wins in the young person's
division.

I don't know, really. It just seems that the ratings are a contradiction to
the programs obvious popularity, judging from this group's sudden explosion
and the sales of TP goodies.

Suffice it to say that if ABC decides it doesn't want it anymore, syndication
companies will be lined up at the door of Lynch/Frost.
