Be afraid, 'Desperate Housewives' fans, be very afraid

0610160640Dana Delany and Nathan Fillion are joining the cast of Desperate Housewives this season, which pretty much dooms it. Delany is a terrific actress -- she won two Emmys for China Beach -- but her last three series (Pasadena, Presidio Med and Kidnapped) have lasted a total of something like 15 episodes, less than a full season. Fillion, meanwhile, has joined two series that promptly died (Two Guys, A Girl And A Pizza Place and Buffy The Vampire Slayer) and starred in two more that didn't make it through a full season (Firefly and Drive). About the only hope for Desperate Housewives is that the ancient Nielsen curses on Delany and Fillion will cancel each other out.

Nathan was on Buffy as part of the ending of the show - he didn't cause it by JOINING the show

do your research before blaming a good actor

Michele

and he was on Two guys and gal for 40 episodes in 3 years - real killer of shows I see were you are coming from

You know, not to mention that Firefly is routinely named as the best show to face cancellation in all of television history, and then even still spawned a successful movie based on the show (Serenity).

But yeah, that Fillion guy....whoooooo boy. He's worse than Ted McGinley...
