Not looking good for the show Reaper

Some are predicting that "Reaper" is not going to be renewed. It's a shame. It barely had a chance and it's really a very hilarious show. Actor Tyler Labine, whom plays Sock, will likely be seen again, maybe as soon as Fall 2009 on Fox's "Sons of Tucson". Ray Wise plays the Devil and will have no shortage of work.

Tyler told End Of Show: “I don’t know what the CW was expecting taking a show off the air for ten months and then placing it against “idol” with no promotion but they were “disappointed” with our ratings to say the least. We drooped [sic] into obscurity.”

If that's what they told Tyler, then how on Earth is the CW taken seriously by the industry? Reaper's live numbers have been beating 90210 almost since the show came back, and Privileged's numbers are even worse. Yet Privileged is considered by the CW to be successful enough for a midseason pickup, yet Reaper's considered a disappointment?

I'll wait for the CW upfronts next week on May 21st. Personally, I'm hoping for a summer pickup, which would probably let Tyler do both shows. Reaper fans: Remember, last year Reaper was declared dead too, but came back at the last minute to get a renewal.
