is hearing that A&E has made the agonizing decision not to renew Patrick Swayze's show The Beast. Although when trade publication asked if a decision had been made about the future of the show the network said none had been made. They also heard speculation that the show was looking for a possible replacement for Swayze just in case. One of the names tossed around was Lou Diamond Phillips, but the sources said he didn't feel like he was a headliner.
I feel for A&E having to make that decision. I mean what do you do when the star of your show has cancer, but the ratings are soft. Do you pick it up or cancel it? It is a decision I am glad I don't have to make. I can tell you I tried to watch the show, but it was way too dark for me and I am sure I am not the only one who felt that way which is probably why A & E made the decision they are about to make.
