I TIVO'd Heather Graham's TV show Emily's Reasons Why Not and it took me a while to figure out why I wasn't getting any more episodes recorded. ABC cancelled the show, no second chances. I understood it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but not even a summer burn-off? Graham didn't seem too broken up about it.
Heather Graham on a Cancelled Emily's Reasons Why Not
"They basically aired one episode and I guess they stopped," she said. "They didn’t get the ratings they wanted and they were just like, 'Okay, we’ll stop.'"
Most people would have asked how it was more profitable to scrap five remaining episodes than just show them at some point. "It was a very bizarre. I don’t fully understand it. It made me just think, it was bizarre they were going to invest all this money and not try to build it more but I don’t know."
Fans like me who got hooked on the one episode that aired may have to go to great lengths to see the other five. A DVD release is unlikely, but the complete series is out there somewhere. "I heard it aired in Iceland."
Heather Graham is back on the big screen in Gray Matters this February 23rd.
