Alex O'Loughlin and Sophia Myles in Moonlight by Eric McCandless/CBS Alex O'Loughlin and Sophia Myles in Moonlight by Eric McCandless/CBS

It's the news no one here wanted to report, but alas, it must be shared. CBS - which earlier today renewed to Old Christine, How I Met Your Mother and The Unit - has opted not to bring back Moonlight for a second season.

Though the vampire-detective drama boasted a fantastically passionate and wonderfully generous (they held a blood drive, people!) fan base, the buzz is that the Eye simply was not happy with Moonlight's retention of its Ghost Whisperer lead-in. At last tally, Mick & Co. were letting slip some 13 percent of Melinda's audience.

For what little it is worth, I'm on a mission to secure for fans some parting words of appreciation from the cult hit's producers. (Alas, Alex himself is currently on holiday.) - MWM
