Post Clone High getting the boot?

According to The Futon Critic.com, MTV's Clone High will take a hiatus. It doesn't say for how long. I double checked at MTV's official site and sure enough, after next week a new show called Punk'd is listed in its time slot. The last episode before the "break" will be Episode #108 - "Raisin the Stakes: A Rock Opera in Three Acts". If this does mean the end of Clone High in the USA, 5 episodes will be left unaired. The series has been aired in full on Canada's Teletoon and is now in its second round of repeats.

Also, the official MTV site for the series has been mysteriously taken down. Does this mean the end of Clone High? Possibly. It could just be MTV being stupid. I'm sure this is just to make room for more high quality hip teen reality shows about life to be added to the lineup.

Well, that would suck if it gets the boot. That's what goes on TV these days, most shows don't last long. I guess we Canucks got lucky for a change. Clone High is pretty cool.

I guess I'm old enough to remember the good ol days of MTV..........y'know when they actually showed videos 24/7!

MTV now sucks. I actually prefer VH1 even though they dont show many videos either. I do like their programs though.

how I long for the MTV of old.

They usually play music videos during primetime. I've just seen a few music videos. My favorite thing is the 10 spot, they shouldnt change anything in that. It sucks so much Jackass got cancelled, I loved that show.

Default Save Clone High

Viacom is getting a lot of heat over the character of clone Gandhi. They think it's offensive even though they've never seen the show. They've only seen the web site, which is why MTV took it off their web site.

The show's the funniest thing on TV and MTV is making a big mistake if they let it go. I know someone else will pick it up and get rich off it. It could be big like South Park.

What's wrong with Gandhi? He's a hilarious character. If this is some religious or ethnic related issue, the people complaining should get their heads out of their fuqn asses, for christ sake its just a cartoon!!!!

I figured the inclusion of Ghandi would cause a lot of sparks.. just like including Jesus and Satan in "South Park".

I think the reason why people were mad at Clone High's "Gandhi" was because he was portrayed as a drunk bastard... Kinda like how people thought that Ms. Swan was a stereotypical asian lady because of her buck teeth and her "Oriental" accent. (Actually, Alex has buck teeth herself, so she couldn't help making Ms. Swan buck-toothed also.) And again, the impersonation of Gandhi was far from accurate. I didn't find any of that offensive, but some sensitive people did.

BTW, I was amused by Clone High's portrayal of Buddha as a fat oriental man.... In real life, he was very skinny, and he was once a prince in India. But I guess most caricatures of historical figures in Clone High are inaccurate anyway.

Yeah, they got rid of Clone High in India because people there got offended by Gandhi.

Actually that was only when he went to the forest to meditate for 40 days. Most figures of Buddha actually portray him as very fat.

That is *SO* stupid. And that's all I have to say.

Well, some people portray Jesus as blue-eyed and lilly-white, but you know that's just impossible. Earliest records portray him as skinny, but some mistranslation occured in southeast Asia and now lots of statues portray him as either fat or medium-sized... But in real life, he was skinny.
