  1. So one wonders which streaming service will bring us Person of Interest. Netflix is my guess, but does this mean Channel Nine would not have to rights to show season five, when CBS in the US get around to it….if at all….I am starting to wonder and for the record hugely upset that CBS are even considering cancelling this amazing TV show. It is the best show on TV in terms of quality and originality. Such a shame that networks cannot recognise excellent writing and acting and the foresight these creators have. This show has so much story to tell, and CBS want to cut that short. And it’s J J Abrams for God’s sake…..what are they thinking? Their programming boss is an idiot.

    • Not going to happen. Simpsons Syndication is literally worth millions.
      The last cable deal in the US signed at $750 million…. streaming providers can’t afford that.
