Angel Preempted

Starting March 10, Angel goes off the air for five weeks and is replaced by fan favorite Smallville episodes.

This newsletter was sent out today:

Hey, Street Team Member!

Beginning March 10, The WB will be airing some of the best Smallville episodes ever for five weeks, Wednesdays at 9/8c.. This is good news for Smallville fans, but it gets even better. You get to decide which episodes will air!

“YOU SAY IT, WE PLAY IT” begins Wednesday, February 25 and runs until 5 p.m. ET March 9, the day before the first episode chosen by YOU will air. The top 5 picks will run during March and April on Wednesdays, 9/8c. (In case you’re wondering, the final episodes of Angel will return after "You Say It, We Play It" concludes.)

Here are the details:

Go to http://www.thewb.com/sayit and watch video clips of the Smallville producers’ top 10 episode picks from seasons 1 and 2. Then vote - you can vote as many times as you like, but can only vote for one episode at a time. The winning episodes will be announced online.

If you have any questions about The WB Street Team or anything you’ve read in this e-mail, feel free to contact us at teamleader@thewbstreetteam.com

Happy voting and watch the Frog!

    Clearly, "The Frog" is insane. I’m planning to BOYCOTT The WB, has anyone started a website for that yet? It’s not as if there will be anything on it to watch, anyway, after Angel’s gone. They are completely insane, that’s the only explanation.

    Clearly, it’s not sufficient enough for the WB to slit the wrists of their viewership, but they must also pour salt on the wound.

    Hope it’s worth it, jerks.

    On the upside, won’t this give the makers of _Angel_ more time to write (or put the finishing touches on) the final episodes?

    With what, four or five episodes left to show?

    Is this some extra time for the WB to let Joss, David and crew wrap things up?

    Is this some extra time for varied individual campaigns to make a difference? Legitimately, although not on the air, it’s an extra five weeks while it’s still technically ’alive’

    I’m planning a boycott once Angel is off the air. Personally I can’t stand their programming. Angel is the only thing worth while to watch there. After that I’m not going back to the WB.

    Okay. First they cancel Angel when it deserves at least one or two more seasons. And now they’re playing Smallville instead of Angel? Is anybody else pissed off? (pardon my bad french...) Totally agree with you ’n7of9’. They are wankers. And come on! A frog? Ha. Anyone remember this: Willow: "Don’t warn the tadpoles!" Giles(I think): "Don’t warn the tadpoles?" Willow: "I have frog fear." Ha. Smack in their face. Lol. Well my work here is done. *flys off to get some postcards and totally flood the frogs...*

    Would this let SMG return on time to appear in the finale?

    This isn’t extra time for the writers.. Regardless, we wouldn’t have new episodes now because sweeps are over, BUT they could air reruns which is what they’re doing for every other show including Smallville.. So no, it’s not a favor.. It’s just taking away more Angel from the viewers.. Why don’t they just put their Smallville countdown during regular Smallville hours?? Wait, that’s logic, and The WB doesn’t like logic..

    They do this every year. It’s normal. There are rarely any new eps in March just like the yearly holiday break. This has NOTHING to do with the fact that it’s not being renewed.
