I was out of town this weekend and learned of the news, at 12:30 am, just as I was going to bed. Who the frak releases renewal/cancellation news at 5am on a Sunday morning??? All day Friday I was checking for news. I did not expect it to be released like this.

Yeah, I'm not sure exactly when that page went up but the Google alert for it landed in my inbox at just before midnight East Coast time, 5am GMT. No tweets, FB posts or other social media duplication of the announcement, just that.

They've also since edited down their statement, which is a little odd. (Was no one available to approve the first edit? Oh, right, it was SUNDAY MORNING!)

It has to be re-iterated that while the show was on the air, Sky did a terrific job of putting it in front of viewers online and trying to engage the audience. Their handling of the cancellation is pretty flimsy though.
