I'd just like to say that just because Back in the Game was picked up, doesn't mean that she will still play the main character. Psych did it, why can't other shows do that? She might be in the pilot but not other episodes. I will be happy for her no matter how that show goes. Sad, though, that psych is ending, but I don't think it's her fault either. In many interviews the cast and crew have said that they don't want to overstay their welcome on television. Now me personally, they can stay on tv all they want. But people will get tired of it eventually, and they can't just get new cast members like General Hospital. (That show is too confusing for me lol) 8 years is a nice number (It will be my favorite number for the rest of my life if that's the number of seasons they will end up having), and they have all enjoyed their time together with Psych. They are going to end now, before the network cuts them off and they get cancelled. That way, Steve can end it on the happy note he's had in his head since the beginning (I hope that means marriage...lol).
Good point about General Hospital and soap operas in general. They just keep going and going with new cast members every few years. The only non soaps I remember doing that were teens shows, Degrassi and Saved By The Bell when they became known by the subtitle The New Class. I like that this is ending with 8 seasons and not overstaying its welcome. I've lost interest in shows over the years because they stuck around too long (CSI and Degrassi franchises, 24) and didn't even like them anymore. Only animated shows to me should go beyond 10 seasons, as the characters can stay mostly the same and only change a little and never age. Other than that, it's usually 10 years or less for any favorite TV shows of mine.
