Tonight ends Christian Slater's foray into network TV, "My Own Worst Enemy". Did any of you out there watch it? To us it seemed to cement the stereotype that Slater has a one-dimensional style even though we know he can do more than that. High budget + Star Name + Low Concept = Failure. Did we need another spy/assassin/crime series? No. There's worse shows out there that could use the ax so let's see them use it. How about Holly Hunter's "Saving Grace"? It's true that she showed off her bare bottom about 1.2x per episode but that shouldn't be enough to save that series. Any suggestions of shows you'd like to see go away?
