A drink? A girls head? Huh? Are you talking about any show that had a girl getting a drink poured over her head? Is there even a way to find that out? I’m sure there are many many shows depicting a girl with a drink getting poured over her head.

Because they weren’t making enough money, and the network or producers don’t want to throw good money after bad.

I think mine is the only answer to the current question?

MikeL's avatar

that is a good answer u did good dland think that your name but anyway u would think they let the cast know before they cancel them like they did married with children jeffersons other shows they cancelled without letting them know .

I suspect it differs from show to show, network to network, production company to production company… Just like in any other business, layoffs are handled very differently from one company to another: I’ve seen places where months of advance planning prepared managers and staff for the coming layoff with weeks of notice and severance packages running months long, and others where managers got paperwork for their employees to be laid off on the day of the layoff, no notice period, and a paltry two-week severance package. I’m sure it’s the same in the TV biz.
