Dear CBS PTB,
Did you think I wasn't going to notice? At some point, it had to occur to someone that either myself, or the fandom might've noticed the reports circulating. Of course, I can see why you might erroneously assume I'd miss your little announcement. Sure, I've had the H1N1, followed by pneumonia and am currently moving at the pace of a lethargic sloth, but there are some things that are still working.
Things like, say my automatic notifications on several sites regarding Numb3rs. Hey, wait, there's a 3 where the e should be in the title? Well, someone should tell Reuters.
So, here you hoped a quiet announcement would result in a lack of reaction? Please, when was the last time I did anything quietly? Did you ignore the 525 days I whined about the sinking of the good 'ship Don/Robin? I may not have much of a voice at the moment (the first person to make a crack about that dies horrifically), but my typing skills are still intact.
Therefore, cutting the eppesode order of Numb3rs from 22 to 16 is definitely going to get this lethargic sloth moving. Over the years of viewing my adorkable professor and the Fedcakes, I have learned a few things about math. For instance, 6 fewer eppesodes means about 252 fewer minutes of Don, Charlie, Alan, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, Liz and Nikki, Amita, and Larry's interest in white food. Do not make me bring up how unhappy I will be if you tell me I will no longer have Edgerton in my life.
In case I am not clear, I am completely not cool with this. In fact, I am extremely displeased. One might even say, distinctly perturbed by these developments.
I expect this to be rectified tout de suite. Sorry, you live in the US, so let me use plain old English: immediately. You do not want to earn my wrath.
PS: I will also inform anyone and everyone that if they would like to write to you to express his or her ire, they can send their grievances to Nina Tassler President, CBS Entertainment 4024 Radford Avenue, Room 3118, Studio City, CA 91604.
PPS: If anyone has a brilliant idea as to what could be sent: hair products, calculators, origami flowers, white food, rulers, please feel free to leave it in the comments.
PPPS: If you have another contact address -- either snail mail or e-mail, please let me know.
PPPPS: Yes, I know the number of PSs in this letter is a little bit middle-school girl passing notes, but I've had H1N1, pneumonia, a lot of medications, and severe exhaustion. I get to include this number of PSs.
PPPPPS: Despite all my recent issues, I'm still tremendously disconcerted by this turn of events. I'm not taking this quietly -- even if I am, technically, taking this lying down because of my illness.
ETA: (Because I was sick of PSs) Look, there's now a petition. *waves shiny object* you will sign it.
