Cherry 'Desperate' for Closure

July 17, 2008 5:47 PM

“Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry, speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, reaffirmed that he’d like to end the series after seven seasons.

The show is entering its fifth season set five years in the future, a reset of sorts for the show, according to Mr. Cherry.

Others might not have the same idea as Mr. Cherry.

While Mr. Cherry explained why he’d like to see his creation close at the end of season seven, ABC Entertainment President Steve McPherson shouted from the back of the room, “Not gonna happen!”

Spoken like a true television executive.

The creative force behind the show wants to end it at a particular time, the television executive doesn't care that the creative has a vision and just wants to milk it as long as people are willing to watch it.

Why is broadcast television having problems again?

Same with "The Simpsons"? Oh yeah. The creator and Fox wants to continue to milk that, too.
